Album Review

Shortly after returning to the U.S. (following three years in Copenhagen) Stan Getz had a musical reunion with Bob Brookmeyer. As usual the cool-toned tenor blends in very well with the valve trombonist and, backed by a fine rhythm section (pianist Steve Kuhn, bassist John Neves and drummer Roy Haynes), they perform three Brookmeyer pieces (including one titled "Minuet Circa '61"), two standards and Buck Clayton's "Love Jumped Out." This little-known session is often quite memorable.

Customer Reviews

Lyricism and swing at their best!!

They say lyricism and swing are the qualities that must be present in jazz at all times. This underrated masterpiece is perhaps one of the best demonstrations of both of those necessities. With Stan Getz, the underrated Bob Brookmeyer, Roy Haynes, the young Steve Kuhn, and a bass player named John Neves, this group never stops swinging for a split second. Moreover, the pairing of Getz (a man with a tone and a sense of lyricism second to none) and Brookmeyer (a man with an ear for harmony like no other, one of jazz's best composers/arrangers, plus a truly underrated improviser) is a match truly made in heaven. Both of these giants construct improvised solos in which every note (and rest) matter, thus making their improvisations compositions in themselves. This is also an underrated moment in the careers of Getz and Brookmeyer, because they developed such a beautiful camaraderie, each man made the other better, and both went on to become major innovators in jazz A must have for any jazz fan!!

One of the all-time great tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz was known as "The Sound" because he had one of the most beautiful tones ever heard. Getz, whose main early influence was Lester Young, grew to be a major influence himself and to his credit he never stopped evolving. Getz had the opportunity to play in a variety of major swing big bands while a teenager due to the World War II draft. He was with Jack Teagarden (1943) when he was just 16, followed by stints with Stan Kenton (1944-1945), Jimmy...
