Product Description

Amazon.com

Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson were both consummate performers, comfortable at any tempo, when they met for this 1957 recording, and they're clearly enjoying one another's skills on ballads and uptempo tunes alike. The group is one of the finest editions of Peterson's trios, with bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis. It's virtually a machine for quiet swing, and the absence of a drummer lets Getz's silky sound come to the fore with all its details intact. For all his fame as a virtuosic pianist, Peterson is an underrated accompanist. He complements a soloist with deft fills and unobtrusive propulsion, and the backgrounds he supplies here are as subtle as his solos are extroverted. The program is a good mix of standards and Getz originals, including the joyous "Tour's End," while the extended ballad medley could define jazz lyricism. There's also a brief but infectious version of Ellis's "Detour Ahead," the guitarist's early and highly successful foray into songwriting. --Stuart Broomer

This CD presents a very important collaboration. Stan Getz may be the most lyrical tenor saxophone player to have ever graced the face of the earth. Only Lester Young comes close. Prez modeled his sound on that of Frankie Trumbauer's C-melody saxophone, and Getz' model is Prez. Both of them transcend Trumbauer's syrupy improvisations. Getz' tone and the lyricism it supports are evident. All of this is for context, of course. This recording is truly a major musical event. It was on a par with Lester Young's famous collaborations with Teddy Wilson and Oscar Peterson. During this 1957 recording session, all of which is on the CD, Peterson's trio and Getz were more than comfortable with one another, and their mutual musical respect yielded classic performances . The cooperation is evident in Getz' solo on "I Want to Be Happy," a model of precision and lyrical invention. Peterson's solos are equally impressive; there's no unnecessary embellishment or decoration, and he swings powerfully. The long ballad medley--"Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "I Don't Know Why, I Just Do," "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "I Can't Get Started," and "Polka Dots and Moonbeams"--features fine solos by Getz and Peterson as well as Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. In the interplay between the trio and Getz in such numbers as Getz' "Bronx Blues." the quartet sounds like a permanent group. In "Three Little Words" Ellis sets down a solid rhythm and Peterson comps behind Getz' opening solo before delivering an eloquent statement of his own which Getz answers with equal grace. The Getz-Peterson collaboration is particularly appealing on Ellis' "Detour Ahead," a prime instance of their treatment of ballad material. On "Sunday" Ray Brown's persistent bass and Ellis' percussive guitar support Getz admirably.Read more ›

This was recorded at the tail end of Stan's "California period" (1953-57), after which he would spend much time in Europe before returning to the States and establishing a base in NYC. His famous Lestorian sound, cool and lyrical, was fully established, and he loved nothing more than (and was better than just about everybody else at) playing the Great American Songbook at medium to medium-up tempos and swinging the daylights out of it.

On this CD he joins up with the Oscar Peterson Trio (Peterson (p) Herb Ellis (g) Ray Brown (b), a group that also was no stranger to the Songbook alluded to above. Stan's tone is a tad huskier than usual and deeply melodious. The first tune on the CD (I WANT TO BE HAPPY), which according to matrix numbers looks like it was the last tune recorded, is interesting in the way Peterson inspires his sidekick: taken up-tempo, Getz has the first solo spot, and he's very relaxed and sounding as if he's happy with a good day's work, but knowing they're at the end of the session, no point in sweating it; then Peterson comes on and takes a wailing solo like there's no tomorrow. Getz solos again, but this time he's on fire, inspired by Oscar's take-no-prisoners approach, and lays down his best solo on the CD. That's genius at work, from both men.

But there are many highlights on this excellent CD. PENNIES FROM HEAVEN is in a medium groove and is all Getz - very nice. TOUV'S END, based on the chords of SWEET GEORGIA BROWN, is an interesting tune and features an excellent Herb Ellis solo. BRONX BLUES, a slow blues, has a strange tag-on final chorus initiated by Oscar that sounds like he blew the cue to finish where it was supposed to. (The other blues on the CD, BLUES FOR HERKY, is a medium boogie blues, and is not exceptional.

GETZ RECORDED WELL OVER ONE HUNDRED ALBUMS, AND I'D RATE THIS ONE AMONG THE BEST OF HIS BEST. I'VE WRITTEN THREE TRANSCRIPTION BOOKS ON STAN GETZ'S MUSIC, AND THIS ALBUM IS AS EXCITING ON THE 10,000TH LISTENING AS IT IS ON THE FIRST!! IT'S A GREAT REPRESENTATION OF LATE 1950'S GETZ STYLE BEFORE THE BOSSA NOVA PERIOD.

The Oscar Peterson Trio never sounded so good. What a beautiful blending of melody and rhythm this group has. An atomic clock could be set with what Oscar, Ray and Herb do. The addition of Stan Getz's melodic ideas makes this CD a true joy. One gets the impression from how Oscar sometimes starts his solos by quoting the previous soloist that the guy can play almost anything that happens to enter his head.

Certainly the previous reviewers have said it all, but I'll simply add that Getz' tone seems to actually benefit (or his playing does) from the lack of a percussionist - even though Herb Ellis' 4/4 may qualify - much as it did 3 decades later with Kenny Barron on "People Time". No, this is even better. "Pennies From Heaven" is absolutely flawless with Stan soaring both before and, especially, after the key change. The "Ballad Medley" is gorgeous. Oscar plays perfectly under Stan when needed and doesn't overpower even when he could on his solos. Ray Brown and Herb Ellis fit like a glove. This was one of my favorite LPs, even though it was mono - but as a CD, in stereo, and with a whole 30 minutes of material that was not on the LP, it ranks as one of my top 10 out there. Beautiful!
