Not yet rated | write a review
Personnel: Stan Getz (tenor saxophone); Charlie Byrd (guitar); Gene Byrd (guitar, bass); Keter Betts (bass); Buddy Deppenschmidt, Bill Reichenbach (drums). Recorded at Pierce Hall, All Souls Unitarian Church, Washington, D.C. on February 13, 1962. Includes liner notes by John Litweiler and Dom Cerulli. Digitally remastered using 20-bit digital technology. The album that launched Jobim's now classic "Desafinado" Jazz Samba was released in 1962, in the early days of America's bossa nova craze and before the music lost its charm to cliche. Joined by fellow Latin jazz pioneer Charlie Byrd on classical guitar, and a discreet bass and drums team, tenor saxophonist Getz makes light and elegant music out of a collection of catchy bossas and sambas. His virtuosity, bluesy drive and smooth, soft tone make the music cook like bossa jazz rarely has since. There are still enough surprises to make this record more than just a period piece, and it stands as a fine example of Getz's lyrical genius.
