Biography

Stan Getz was a tenor saxophonist of the first rank who, while exploring and pursuing a purity of musical expression, maintained a large following. He attracted it early in his career with his recording of "Early Autumn" with the Woody Herman band in 1948, more or less sustained it during the Fifties (which were not always tranquil times for him), and then, in the early Sixties, ...

Format: Audio CD
This is small group jazz at its very best. After casting off the restraints of the bossa nova years and dabblings in popish fusion stuff, hear Getz doing what he does best - playing gorgeous tenor with some great sidemen. Stan really stretches out here - including a fast 'What Is This Thing Called Love'- but even though it was one of his last recordings, not much of the butter seems to have run out of his tone. He sounds irristable on the opening 'El Cahon' and all throughout the CD he weaves long flowing lines through and around the chords - a masterly show of phrasing. Mention should also be made of Kenny Barron and the rhythm section. They accompany Stan perfectly, diggin in or mellowing out accordingly. Barron further proves himself to be one the very best - funky and probing comping throughout and his solo on 'I Can't Get Started' is jaw-dropping. He ends up playing out the track on his own! Although taken from a live gig, sound quality and recording are excellent. Highly recommended. (It's companion,'Serenity' is from the same date and is just as good.)

Format: Audio CD
This session of Stan's engagement at the Café Montmartre, July 6th, 1987, Copenhagen is the companion disc of 'Serenity' from the same date, equally compulsive and stunning. Stan is in ascendency with backing musicians of the quality of Rufus Reid, (b), Victor Lewis (d), and the inimitable Kenny Barron on piano, Stan's accompanist to his end. The date was part of his rejuvinated Scandinavian life. His acceptance and appreciation are evident from the opening ,'El Cahon', the beginnings of an astonishing concert. 'I Can't Get Started', 'Stella by Starlight' and Stan's Blues' are beautiful openers for his charismatic and wonderful sound later heard on 'I Thought about you', 'What is This Thing Called Love', and the poignant, heart-rending Billy Strayhorn number, 'Blood Count'. Stan is exuberant with his unique tone and delivery. A strong mention for his alliance with Kenny Barron who had an innate rapport with the saxophonist and a stylish soloist in his own right.

This is Stan Getz's record, however. I did not realize that I bought this 9 years ago (from Amazon although they seem to ignore past verified past purchases). It remains relaxed, full of numbers that Stan clearly enjoyed playing, bringing out the best of the maestro. I am a self-confessed Getz fan, as are many, but listening within an atmosphere that is mutually engaging is a marvel. He can be heard and seen in action on the DVD, 'Stan Getz in Copenhagen', covering some of this concert and is even more enjoyable with the visual contact. Stan Getz's is unmatched and his music is unforgettable. Catch it while you can.
The informative liner notes of the album are by Alan Tercinet. Wonderful.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was originally recorded in Copenhagen in 1987 for Denmark radio, and features Barron (piano), Reid (bass) and Lewis (drums), and runs for a glorious 70 minutes. Despite being sixty and (I think) already ill with the cancer which would kill him within four years, this is a wonderfully life-affirming, energised and wholly irresistible performance.

Of the seven tracks here, the majority are lengthy work-outs, allowing Stan and his fellow musicians to stretch out and explore, whether it be the fiery approach to 'What is this thing called Love?', with his sax blistering along, or the more reflective/ballad pieces, such as Strayhorn's 'Blood Count' or the hauntingly beautiful 'Stella by Starlight', with his horn producing an "incredibly lovely sound" (Penguin Jazz Guide).

The interplay between musicians seems almost telepathic, with Lewis's solos and fills, making a substantial contribution to this lustrously lovely recording. Speaking of which, the sound quality is very good indeed, with the (edited) applause adding to the live electricity of the event. Although there are a number of other live recordings from Stan's substantial career, this is my particular favourite, and I'm going to investigate 'Serenity' which was culled from the same set of dates. Serenity

Gramophone Jazz Guide list this as an essential 'jazz library' album, and the Penguin Jazz Guide award it their top four stars, commenting that it represents "a pristine example of his art". If you're still unconvinced, simply take a few minutes to listen to the Amazon sampler, and realise how much you must be missing!

Format: Audio CD
The great tenor saxophonist Stan Getz(1927-1991) recorded this album when he was 60 at The Montmartre Club, Copenhagen on July 6, 1987.
Getz is in superb form producing an "incredibly lovely sound" on tenor with a sympathetic rhythm section of Kenny Barron(piano), Rufus Reid(bass) & Victor Lewis(drums).
Highlights of the seven mostly lengthy tracks include Gigi Gryce's 'Stan's Blues', a moving version of Billy Strayhorn's 'Blood Count' and the standard 'I Thought About You'.
'Anniversary' contains almost 70 minutes of beautiful music and is one of Stan Getz's finest late recordings.
