HASH(0x96129b04) out of 5 stars Historic Live Recording 18 Jan. 2014
By Jonathan Guarriello - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album by tenor sax legend Stan Getz was recorded live in performance during the 1972 Montreaux Jazz Festival with an all star quartet of sorts that at the time were still young guns raising their profiles. On piano & Fender Rhodes electro piano is none other than the amazing Chick Corea. On upright bass is a young Stanley Clarke. On drums the legendary Tony Williams who had left Miles Davis's second quintet just a couple years prior & began his foray into jazz rock fusion with his group Lifetime.

The band had just completed work on a studio album under Stan's name called "Captain Marvel" which featured original tunes composed by Chick Corea such as the title track "Captain Marvel", "Day Waves" along with the standard "Lush Life". This set features most of the tunes recorded on the Captain Marvel session along with Benny Golson's tribute to the late Clifford Brown "Remember Clifford". The reason I bought this album was the inclusion of the classic Corea tune "Windows" which had been recorded on Chick's trio album "Now He Sings Now He Sobs" in 1968.

The set list is: Captain Marvel, Day Waves, Lush Life, Windows, I Remember Clifford, La Fiesta & Time's Lie.

The band is playing well on this live set spurred on by Clarke & Williams rhythmic thrust. In my opinion the recording's sonic quality could be alittle better but it's not what I'd call sub par or bootleg quality. My favorite tunes here are Captain Marvel, Windows & Lush Life. In my opinion Getz really excels the most on the slower tunes like Lush Life. I'll close my review with this, if your a fan of jazz from the early 70s like Miles "In a Silent Way" or Kilimanjaro, Getz's "Captain Marvel" & Return To Forever's "Light As A Feather" than purchasing this should be a no brainer! Also as far as I know & I may be wrong but this is the only live recording of this historic group I've ever heard of. Plus it's an important document of jazz as it was making the change into what we'd come to call fusion. Check this out! I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

HASH(0x9628351c) out of 5 stars No excuse for the inferior sound quality 4 Feb. 2014
By Jeff Crompton - Published on
I've had the European Polydor LP containing four of these performances for years, and really enjoyed it. So I was excited to find this CD with three more tracks - the complete performance by the Getz Quartet at Montreux 1972. Then I put on the CD, and was shocked. The LP features a nice, clean stereo mix, but this CD is extremely muddy, and mono to boot. I'm not talking about the kind of subtle differences that lead to a discussion of "what's the best mastering of this album?" I'm talking about a drastic difference, from pretty good sound on the LP to absolutely horrible sound on this CD. I found it very fatiguing to listen to.

The only reason I'm rating this CD two stars instead of one is because the music is so good - I'm keeping it for the three tracks not on the LP. But what source tape could they have used for this? It's so inferior to the LP that there's really no excuse.

Edit, one year later: Well, live and learn. I've come to see that any mention of sound quality in a review here results in "not helpful" votes. So be it. Again, I'm not splitting hairs here; this is a horrible-sounding CD.
