"The Dolphin" was recorded at the Keystone Korner, a small club in San Francisco, which resulted in one of Getz' greatest live records. The intimate atmosphere of the club and the added benefit of a well rehearsed, highly imaginative quartet at his side let Getz excel on the six tunes that are collected here. "The Dolphin" is the inevitable reminder of his Bossa Nova days, but it sounds as fresh and lively as if Getz had begun his love affair with Brazilian music only yesterday. Pianist Lou Levy, who had worked with Getz for more than 30 years when they made the record, is one of the best pianists Getz ever had, and I was utterly absorbed by his solo on "The Dolphin". Ballads ("A Time for Love", "My Old Flame") and up tempo tunes ("Joy Spring", "The Night Has a Thousand Eyes") are both present on the record, and it is difficult not end up in stereotypes describing them. Let's say that it will be highly difficult not to like them. A good record for any occasion, but if you happen to have a beach and cool drink handy, sit down and relax with a superb record of an artist who "believes in the power of beauty, instead of finding beauty in power", as Leonard Feather put it.
