This is Stan Getz GREATEST album!

"Getz/Gilberto" is the album he will be remembered for, his best seller, but Stan put more of himself, tried for perfection here and hit the mark! A testament to his ,hmmm, 45 years of recording jazz. Recorded in the same live concert was "Serenity", but THIS album has the beautiful, serene ballads for which Getz is most famous, if that's what you are looking for. ("Serenity", despite the title, has the upbeat bebop tunes, mostly. I think the titles should be switched!)

Recorded to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Stan Getz, in the 80's, had been sick with cancer and considered washed up by many in jazz after a decade or so of trying to follow the latest trends, like fusion.

But here he was happy , healthy, off the drugs and alchohol and his cancer was in remission. Zen Macrobiotics and a hour a day swimming in the ocean helped. He went back to doing what he did best, "The Sound" beatiful lyric saxophone, 3d blue velvet fog sculpted notes on straight ahead traditional jazz standards. (No bossa nova). Ballads and bebop. The result is one of the greatest comeback albums of all time. I think Stan didn't know how much time he had left, so he put it all here. (A little over three years later he would die of the cancer).

There is no longer any attempt to hold back or be "cool". He is more expressive and emotional (happy, sad) than his early work, without ever sounding angry or cynical.

Excellent back up band, with his later years "soulmate" Kenny Barron on piano. Excellent recording.

2005 update - of all the Getz albums I have, and I have a lot, this is the one I listen to most. More than "Getz/Gilberto", more than "Bossa & Ballads", more than "Jazz Samba", (all wonderful albums too).

This is a wonderful album. The tunes and the performances are tremendous. I don't know who the keyboard player is but if you enjoy piano, that in itself is worth the album. The band is so tight and smooth; excellent recording. Highly recommended.

Format: Audio CD
This was originally recorded in Copenhagen in 1987 for Denmark radio, and features Barron (piano), Reid (bass) and Lewis (drums), and runs for a glorious 70 minutes. Despite being sixty and (I think) already ill with the cancer which would kill him within four years, this is a wonderfully life-affirming, energised and wholly irresistible performance.

Of the seven tracks here, the majority are lengthy work-outs, allowing Stan and his fellow musicians to stretch out and explore, whether it be the fiery approach to 'What is this thing called Love?', with his sax blistering along, or the more reflective/ballad pieces, such as Strayhorn's 'Blood Count' or the hauntingly beautiful 'Stella by Starlight', with his horn producing an "incredibly lovely sound" (Penguin Jazz Guide).

The interplay between musicians seems almost telepathic, with Lewis's solos and fills, making a substantial contribution to this lustrously lovely recording. Speaking of which, the sound quality is very good indeed, with the (edited) applause adding to the live electricity of the event. Although there are a number of other live recordings from Stan's substantial career, this is my particular favourite, and I'm going to investigate Serenity which was culled from the same set of dates.

Gramophone Jazz Guide list this as an essential 'jazz library' album, and the Penguin Jazz Guide award it their top four stars, commenting that it represents "a pristine example of his art". If you're still unconvinced, simply take a few minutes to listen to the Amazon sampler, and realise how much you must be missing!

What can I say? Stan Getz has the perfect tone, the perfect lyrical directions, always in the moment of the composition, and his ideas are endless. His live albums are heavy, groovy, sexy, jazzy, and they put you into the happy place! Thank you Stan - We love you Brother!Anniversary!
