Let me say it simply: This CD is one of Getz's finest recordings, out of hundreds. It matches his wistful, moody lyricism with one of the most astoundingly inventive rhythm sections of all time: Stanley Cowell on piano, Miroslav Vitous on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on piano. If you like Getz's "Sweet Rain" with Chick Corea -- which is my personal fave -- you've got to get this. It's lean, adventurous, very subtle music. And at that price, I'd buy it for all the Getz fans you know. I did!

Agree with the other reviewers here, this is a little known gem in the Stan Getz discography that is among his best live recordings. As the 60's drew to a close, Getz had been drawing away from the popular bossa nova sound he helped create with one of the biggest selling jazz records in history- "Getz/Gilberto". I remember reading in the booklet notes to a Verve vault discovery cd, called "Nobody else but me" with Gary Burton, that the music Getz made with that group had been shelved because the label did not want to diverge from the bossa nova and other popular oriented records he had been making. He began a new direction with that aforementioned cd of a 1964 recording which was released for the first time in any format in 1994. Btw that disc has since become a rare collectors item. Which leads us to the release at hand, people primarily familiar with his bossa nova records may be enlightened by "The song is you" which presents Getz as an artist capable of an adventurous and foward thinking sound- helped in no small part by a rhythm section consisting of future ECM artists Jack Dejonette on drums and Miroslav Vitous on bass, plus Stanley Cowell on Piano (who would soon help found an innovative independent jazz label with Charles Tolliver- Strata East). Each of them contribute original compositions, and the obligatory Jobim songs are given a fresh take. With this line up Getz has some young lions on par with some of the top progressive groups of the time. Getz alternately pushes the envelope with a harder edged sound, and at other times retains the tone and character found on his earlier recordings. As mentioned there is alot more than Stan's fine performance on this album- It is not an overstatment to call this one of the most spontaneous yet sympathetic rhythm sections he ever played with.Read more ›

I can see why Verve didn't keep this Stan Getz date in the catalog for very long. Some of the arrangements are a bit disjointed, reflecting the short tenure of this group; there are too many extended (i.e. tedious) bass and drum solos; and Stan Getz's clumsy attempts at introducing the songs in French are a real distraction and should have been edited out. There are many wonderful live Getz recordings, but "The Song is You" isn't among them.

As a tenor saxophonist myself, Getz was always my inspiration. I try to emulate his sound every chance I get. To me he was and always will be the premiere jazz tenor saxophonist.

There is nothing like a live jazz concert to bring out the creative talents of the musicians, especially when led by the preeminent tenor saxaphonist, Stan Getz. The range of tunes from standards to originals -bossas, ballads and bop, are excellent choices to display the talents of the group.

(Amazon personnel: can you advise me your e-mail address so that I can communicate with you as I have a problem with one of the vendors re an order placed in January? Thanks , schafe@bbtel.com)
