This live follow-up to the surprise blockbuster Getz/Gilberto was inevitable. Interestingly, the original LP release of the October 1964 Carnegie Hall concert focused on separate sets by Getz's quartet (featuring vibist Gary Burton) and Gilberto's trio: each is as meditative and sweetly melancholic as you'd expect. Five bonus tracks bring together Getz, Gilberto, and the latter's wife, Astrud Gilberto, in revisiting their collaboration. --Rickey Wright

A previous review provided some interesting biographical information, but was a bit off-base regarding the musical contents. Getz and the Gilbertos do play together on 5 of the album's 15 songs, including beautiful versions of Corcovado and The Girl from Ipanema.
Getz/Gilberto is better. But the individual sets here from the two masters have their quiet charms. And Astrud's singing rarely has been heard to better effect. Definitely worth picking up.

Ever since purchasing Jazz Samba I've been on a Bossa Nova quest. This is one I'll be trading in mainly becuase of the editing of the recording. Too much emphasis was placed in giving the feeling that you are there in the audience. In fact the applause and the overly modulated announcer are so loud and distracting it takes you away from the enjoyment of the music. This would be a good album if you just cut out all those wasted moments and just had the music.

The sound mix of this "Live" concert is appalling -- it's kind of like "João Gilberto, Stan Getz, Astrud Gilberto & Hi-Hats!" No disrespect to Joe Hunt or to Helcio Melito (the two drummers for this concert), but the playing and/or sound mix is simply too obtrusive ("undesirably noticeable" is an apt definition here), as the voice and guitar of João Gilberto, as well as the fluid tenor saxophone of Stan Getz, are consistently overshadowed by those darned hi-hats. (...rolling eyes...) Despite this annoyance, João performs at the peak of his powers, although it appears that the performances of both Astrud and Stan Getz are greatly restrained (perhaps there was some backstage (read: real life) drama going on there?). Suffice it to say, if it is great inspiration that you seek, you will not find it here, although this is still a worthy collector's item. A higher recommendation would be "Gal Costa: Canta Tom Jobim - Ao Vivo" (DVD) which left me in tears from its exquisite execution of beautiful music.

According to "Stan Getz - a life in Jazz", Stan had broken up with Astrud after an affair that wrecked her marriage to Joao Gilberto.

None of them was speaking to the others. Each got up on stage with a different backup band, mostly they don't play together. Like oil and water. The result is mediocre. A major disappointment after the perfect synchrony and intimacy of "Getz/Gilberto". For completists.

"Jazz Samba 2" is a much better followup.

Format: Audio CD
Recorded live in Carnegie Hall in October, 1964, this CD presents tenor legend Stan Getz in two different settings: with his own quartet (featuring a young Gary Burton on vibes, Gene Chirico on bass, and Joe Hunt on drums) playing standards, and with his quartet as accompaniment to João and Astrud Gilberto's bossa nova vocal stylings. Sandwiched between these two Getz presentations are several cuts featuring João Gilberto's bossa nova trio, with Gilberto on guitar accompanied by Keter Betts on bass and Helcio Melito on drums. As you might expect, the music is gentle, melodic, and hypnotizing, and the overall presentation is aided by the sound quality, which is for the most part quite good, especially for a live set, with its built-in sonic paradox of intimate vocals (from the performer being so close to the microphone) framed by the more distant sound of the background instruments. All in all, this is an excellent set both musically and sonically.

This wonderful album is the complete live recordings of Stan Getz-Joao Gilberto at Carnegie Hall dated October 9, 1965. The album consists of 15 tracks and a total playing time of 63:38. Verve records also had a release of an edited version of this album that was released back in 2008.For all true Stan Getz & Joao Gilbert fans out there, this is the version to go for and will likely be more sought after thereon. Look for this particular album versionGetz/Gilberto #2: Recorded Live at Carnegie Hall before it becomes scarce. Good luck to all fans/collectors out there!

I got this album about 7 years ago and from the first time I listened to it, it took its place as my all-time favorite. It was my introduction to samba and my inspiration to search for more jazz for my cd collection.
The music is so versatile and comforting - it is a perfect complement to whatever mood I'm in, be it upbeat or somewhat sad. It is complex but not too challenging to listen to like some other jazz can be. It does not get old or boring to me.
Other reviewers have simply compared this album to others in the genre, but I would rather think of it standing on its own as a wonderful introduction for someone who doesn't have much jazz in their collection, and a must-have for those who do.

What would turn out to be their special live follow-up to their landmark duet masterpiece
Getz/ Gilberto, Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto repeated their same groundbreaking success for
a live performance at New York's City's Carnegie Hall in October of 1964 with rewarding
results. First released in 1965 and reissued on CD in it's own complete expanded format in
1994, Getz/ Gilberto #2 is a magical time-honoured extravaganza that sound even better the
second time around and holds it's own with an appealing selection of superb jazz, pop, and
Bossa Nova cuts. Backed by a stellar quartet that include master vibraphonist Gary Burton,
Getz strikes up some exquisite performances which are both first rate and sparkling, while
Gilberto serenades the packed audience with his crystal clear guitar solos and stylish vocals,
which made this live album such a jubilent listening experience. Beginning with the original
Getz classic Grandfather's Waltz, the thoroughly atmospheric track set has plenty of complex
tracks to offer as they include Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face and a fantastic
take on Stan's Blues during his first four numbers before letting Joao take the stage in full
force. During Joao's appearance, he performs his set of timeless Bossa Nova classics such as
Rose Morena, Un Abraco, No Bonfa Meditacao and O Pato (The Duck), which he handles with
grandeur and such crescendo style.
