Album Review

Stan Getz's final recording, a two-CD live set of duets with pianist Kenny Barron that was cut just three months before his death, finds the great tenor in surprisingly creative form despite an occasional shortness of breath. Getz's tone is as beautiful as ever and he does not spare himself on this often exquisite set. His version of Charlie Haden's "First Song" is a highlight but none of the 14 performances are less than great. A brilliant farewell recording by a masterful jazzman.

Customer Reviews

One of Kenny's, Stan's best recordings...EVER.

being a professional jazz pianist, which required countless hours of practice, listening and studying, i believe that i have earned the right to deem a recording an unbelievable, unequaled, magnificent captured moment in jazz history. from a musician's standpoint, i can assure u, this is one of those records that cats like me, and jazz musicians from all over the world will consult for information as a university student would consult an encyclopedia for his/her thesis paper...each time learning something new from each and every listen. thank you kenny, thank you stan. a true source of inspiration...and a true recording that will be one of the paragons for piano/sax duo for centuries.

It's like you're there.

This is an album that puts you in the audience. Getz’s expressive lines make you forget about everything else. Kenny Barron is the perfect compliment to the airy feeling of the sax. I love the sounds of the audience putting down glasses during a quiet solo, or the moving of chair legs on what I imagine to be an old Danish café floor. Probably the best live recording I have heard.

Outstanding

Outstanding--a sheer display of mastery from both musicians. This is Getz's swan song, recorded just several months before his death, and Kenny Barron provides a cushion of accompaniament for Getz that is both supportive and inspirational. No one could do a better job. Solos here are exceptional from both musicians. All of this is helped by some magic that was in the air that night. These two men were born to play together. Highly Reccomended--

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...
