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!!

Bob Brookmeyer was long considered one of the top valve trombonists in jazz and a very advanced arranger whose writing was influenced by modern classical music. He started out as a pianist in dance bands but played valve trombone with Stan Getz (1953). He gained fame as a member of the Gerry Mulligan quartet (1954-1957), was part of the unusual Jimmy Giuffre Three of 1957-1958 (which consisted of Giuffre's reeds, Brookmeyer's valve trombone, and Jim Hall's guitar), and then re-joined Mulligan as...
