With all of the Stan Gtez recordinds that ARE in print, it's always a shame when you come across one that's pretty unique in an artists's cannon that is not available to the public.

I'm no Getz expert but I do know he didn't record in this format very often, especially when one sees almost no standards are in this recording. And the results are quite good. I can't imagine any fan or collector of Getz' works NOT having this one to be honest.

Recorded at Ronnie Scott's Club in London on 3 days in March 1971, the band consists of Getz-Tenor Sax along with a trio of Eddy Louiss on Organ, Electric Guitarist Rene Thomas, and Drummer Bernard Lubat.

None of the tunes will be familar here except for Benny Golson's "I Remember Clifford". The rest of the tracks are mostly originals by Eddy Louiss or Rene Thomas with one track each from outside composers Albert Mangelsdorf and Bronislau Kaper-both of whom i believe to be European Jazz musicians themselves (I do know of Mangelsdorf's work anyway).

The recording quality is quite good and Getz (and indeed the entire band) seem to really be having fun. What more could you want?

Personally I think there are too few recordins of jazz organ out there anyway-especially ones which aren't completley based on blues. So this one really does the trick for me-as much for the wonderful band as for Getz himself..

If it comes into print again, do try and pick it up!!

I'm going to take this up a notch from the previous review. When I bought this in 1971, I thought it was the best quartet date Getz ever did, including 'Sweet Rain." This guy never stood still or rested on his laurels. Like Miles, he was constantly searching and surrounding himself with great sidemen. They both seem to seek perfection everytime out.
Get the picture ... Miles had drastically changed. Coltrane and Wes were gone. Fusion was looming large. Rock had peaked. Many jazz mainstays were putting out 'pop' jazz.
The 60's had been saturated with organ jazz, but Stan had never used an organ in any of his groups. This was new for him and he meets the challenge well. If Miles himself had guested with this group on this afternoon at Ronnie Scott's making it a quintet, it might have put this recording into super status. But, it's great anyway! Take "SABI" for an example. The group really dip in and stretch out. GETZ'S second entrance on this reaches sublime creativity. Rolling like a steamroller with endless ideas that culminate into an utter and sheer beautiful sadness. The supporting trio members are fantastic. This recording probably never got much radio play due to the extended cuts, but it's a real sleeper (as in keeper.)

I've had this album since it came out on LP, and I grabbed the CD version the first time I saw it. This is one of the great Stan Getz recordings. René Thomas is a wonderful guitarist (Sonny Rollins thought he was one of the best), Bernard Lubat acquits himself admirably, and Eddy Louiss is simply one of my favorite organists, a master player. With all due respect to the person who dismissed this album because of the organ, you've really missed something. "Our Kind of Sabi" is incredible. The quartet ranges from burning ferocity to a graceful fragility and carries it all off beautifully. Don't miss this one. There's even a bonus track on the CD, "I Remember Clifford."

I'm a jazz guitarist and jazz record collector. O.K., I admit it. I bought this album due to the presence of guitarist, Rene Thomas, the short-lived, alcoholic, gypsy bebopper, though I do love Stan Getz. What I remember from the LP liner notes is this album was recorded shortly after the passing of Stan's father. The session has a strong, urgent, emotional vibe to it; perhaps more than any other Getz recording that I've heard. Getz burns on this one. For me, this is an extremely compelling recording, and one that I frequently returned to. As a guitarist, I probably enjoyed Rene Thomas on this session as much as any I've heard from him. Being a gypsy, he relays a lot more emotional content than his American, bebop contemporaries. A sort of deep poetic sense. Like a more introspective Django with a dark electric tone. This is a very worthy album that I highly recommend. As one reviewer noted, it's a real sleeper.
