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, ...

This is another Getz classic, recommended in both Penguin and Gramophone Jazz guides. With a generous running time of almost 73 minutes, it features Candoli on trumpet, Levy on piano, with Vinnegar and Manne on bass and drums respectively. As you'll notice from the Amazon sampler, the first 7 tracks are all over 6 minutes, and the quintet is as tight and sprightly as you could wish, with the track length allowing time for sparkling, searching solos from both horns and piano, while the rhythm section sustains a pacy rhythm behind it all.

However, coupled with the initial session are another five tracks recorded a few days later without Candoli, which usher in a wholly different atmosphere. The quartet's interpretation of these standards is warm and relaxed, and much closer to 'late night' jazz, with 'A Handful of Stars' particularly enchanting. So this album has a 'two sides of the coin' character, but both are equally fine, with the latter easing you down gently from the livelier pace of the quintet session.

This fine cd has very good sound quality, and a booklet insert which has some helpful notes by Phil Bailey, photos, and the original liner notes. Verve are to be congratulated on the quality of this attractive package. Lovely stuff.

In summer, 1955, Stan Getz was working on the film, 'The Benny Goodman Story'. With time on his hands, he put together a band consisting of Conte Candoli(t), Lou Levy(p), Shelley Manne(d) and Leroy Vinnegar(b). They had a week's engagement at the end of July that year in the top Hollywood jazz club, Zardi's. Two weeks after starting, he took the band into the studios to record this album. With the exception of Lou Lervy, Getz had worked with the other musicians in the Woody Herman band. The West-East Coast jazz divide was largely a marketing exercise. The cool, relaxed sound of Getz could equally have been played in New York or in the Mid-West. Despite that, these numbers consist mainly of standards. 'East of New York' and 'Summertime' written in the thirties, had been recently recorded by Charlie Parker yet Getz breathes his own interpretation into them, making them sound fresh. His lyrical, laid-back tone contrast with Candoli's bright and sparkling articulation. The highlight of the session is 'S-h-i-n-e', a tune from the twenties, where Getz produces an amazing solo performance. After eight unaccompanied bars he rips into nine choruses that belie belief that these are improvised, in that they seem so perfect as to be sight-read.

'A handful of Stars', 'Serenade in Blue' and other familiar numbers are mere vehicles that the saxophonist delivers with his usual beautiful master-craftsman expression. There are some alternate takes, each with a different Getz stamp. Candoli is absent on 6 of the 15 tracks. The rhythm section are exemplary and the sound excellent as are the liner notes. This is Getz's record and another addition to his extensive repertoire; consistently brilliant and innovative especially given his lifestyle problems.

I still have the vinyl (LP)record that I bought many years ago, and the cover is shabby and torn, but the contents are absolutely great. I was happy to find this CD in the Amazon archives, and have again listened to and enjoyed the music several times.
Stan Getz is, of course, the man with his wonderful fluid and subtle sound and backed with a terrific rhythm section. I have always been very fond of "Four", which in this arrangement is an outstanding example of cool west coast jazz, when it's best, but "East of the sun", and especially "Our love is here to stay", are also great, and so is, actually, the remaining part of the CD.
My warmest recommendation.

I was given the vinyl 12" of this 30 years ago when I was at Uni by the dodgy, stoner "grounds keeper" at my halls of residence... and ever since it has been one of my "always return to" stand bys, when I want to listen to something cool and relaxing. So now I'm completely turn-table-less I had to get it on CD, and I was not at all disappointed.

Getz, smooth style is simply so classy and classic. The whole ensemble simply "gel" and there is not a single dud track. Furthermore, despite the sheer age of the recording the production quality is excellent.
