Remembering Stan...

Stan Getz tribute - Norwegian Radio 1993 - Part 1 of 3 (I)

This is Part 1 of 3. The other two will follow later. The three parts are all from the first program of a series made for NRK.
I've tried to translate the Norwegian words in to English - sorry if you find some wrong words etc.etc. I did my best.

Ohhh - so happy you liked it - I almost didn't post it - just to be sure you wanted it here, but the files are so big so I couldn't mail it to you without it taking "a whole year" LOL.
I struggled with it the whole yesterday evening and today. But the other 2 will be up in a day or two.
So it was for Bill Evans!! I didn't know that. I just think that the opening is gorgeous!!!

Thanks Hilde.
What a lovely program.
Eagerly waiting for the other parts
I am always amazed how the European broadcasting houses did so much for jazz. A million thanks for all
the videos and music we can enjoy.
That was great music with Bill Evans in Belgium.

hehe - yes, I'm struggling with them now, so you'll have them here soon.
Yes, Europe adopted jazz very quickly and here in Norway we had a couple of very good journalists that taped alot, AND not to forget that one of these guys made copies when the Radio and TV stations started deleting old tapes and using them one more time for new interviews and shows. IDIOTS!! But some is still here for us to enjoy thanks to people like the journalist I mentioned (Johs Berg).
So happy you liked it Denis!
I agree with you - the Belgium session is great!
Hugs to you Denis

Just incredible music.
To hear Opus The Bop with Hank Jones, Max Roach and Curley Russell
then fast forward to 1989 at the Paris Tribute to Bird then there
are beautiful videos of Stan again with his old cohorts of Hank, Max and Percy Heath on bass.
Right there on YouTube. You can see how these guys loved to play together.

Yes, absolutely!!! You can feel that the chemistry is right between them, that they love playing together. And Hank Jones one of my old time heroes - but then again; they're all great.
And thank YOU!!!
