  • Awesome Recording

    Stan Getz is a giant of a saxaphone player who pioneered the mellow west coast sound. These recordings were made toward the end of his life when he had gotten sober, was battling cancer but got his groove back and teamed up with his musical twin Kenny Barron, George Mraz and Victor Lewis created some of the finest jazz ever recorded. All the players feed off each other and its clear that there is a seamless vibe to this recording that transports the listener to a different place. There is so much emotion in some of these tunes that all you can do is let it wash over you. Simply beautiful and some say that perhaps this is the best recording he has ever made. It would be hard to argue that one.

    There's something about the way Stan Getz massages the saxophone. His phrasing is like liquid love. There's a "breathiness" that's so soothing when listening to his riffs. I was raised on Bossa Nova, listening to Jobim, Gilberto, and Getz over the family stereo in the 60's. This recording captures the same comforting vibe.
  • Front to Back Amazing...

    This is definitely one of the best re-release ever. Stan getz at his most touching and commanding. This album is a creation in delicate beatuy. The speed and tempo of Bossas and Ballads gives you an aural experience of soultry flovor. Get's is at his creative peak in the breadth and control of the Sax. There are fast tracks and very slow, stroll at dusk tracks also. It's a compliment as a gift for any collection. This is an altogther great album evry track. No skipping.

    His sound here is to die for. So glad this exists to relive that point in time he played for us.

    I am surprised that there are not more rave reviews about this album. I can listen to this album (especially Sunshower) all day, drifting along the gentle river of this music. Kenny Barron and Stan Getz obviously like playing together. Victor Lewis always swings, and Al Schmitt knows what he is doing. I do not think it gets any better than this.
