Editorial Reviews

The shore-front Lighthouse Caf‚ at Hermosa Beach was the hub of the L.A. Jazz scene throughout the '50s. From 1949 until 1961, this Californian beach front niterie may have hosted everyone from Miles to the MJQ, Lee Morgan to Cannonball Adderley, The Jazz Messengers to The Jazz Crusaders but it is for its resident (Light) House Band that this venue is fondly remembered. Mainly comprised of former Stan Kenton soloists, The Lighthouse All-Stars boasted such stars as Shorty Rogers, Maynard Ferguson, Shelly Manne, Jimmy Giuffre, Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, Frank Rosolino, Conte Candoli and many more. . On this Giant Steps release, it's Stan Getz plus Teddy Charles (vibraphone) who are in the spotlight. In doing so, it recaptures some of the magic that was unique to those nightly sessions at The Lighthouse back in the day. Giant Steps.

This 2-CD set has a misleading label. The first 6 tracks on disc 1 are indeed Stan Getz Live at the Lighthouse. These tracks are very rare and have never before been released on CD. They were originally released in 1953 on Vantage LP NLP-5003. These 6 rare tracks make the purchase of this 2-CD set worthwhile. (5 stars) ..........However, you will be disappointed if you expect to hear Stan Getz on the remaining tracks of disc 1 and all of disc 2. These tracks are reissues of Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All-Stars Contemporary LPs previously released on Fantasy CDs OJC-151, -406 and -972. (1 star).

I certaintly would indeed like to review this music. But since you have seen fit not to permit us to listen to samples of the offering, it can not be realisticly done.

Thanks anyways,

While Stan Getz may only be featured on some of the tracks on this release, the other stuff is still great. The Lighthouse All-Stars were a more than capable ensemble and their standards are lively and entertaining. The tracks that do feature Getz are incredibly fresh and worth the purchase price alone.
