Remembering Stan...

Stan Getz tribute - Norwegian Radio 1993 - Part 2 of 3 (I)

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

Wow I had never heard Stan on alto. The sound is so beautiful and rounded.
What a great story. A first here. 5 stars;)

And to hear Early Autumn. Surprising how this never sounds dated.
Beautiful chronological development in Stan's music. wonderful.
Arne Astrup is right on. Nobody came close to his sound
and melodic inventiveness.

Great work Hilde.

Me neither - the only time is on the one track here. He's playing it so beautiful!!
And Arne Astrup, wish you understood Danish, he's so sweet in the way he's talking.

So happy you liked it Denis!!!
And I must say I think Harald Gundhus (the guy who made this series) did a fine job.
Hugs to you.

Very nice recording. I always thought that Parker had a nice Tenor tone judging by the recordings of him on that horn. I can certainly say the same of Getz on Alto now.

Hi, very nice find this site and what a surprise to hear the mighty Stan Getz on alto too! Very nice t especially because his sound on alto was exactly as I thought it would have been.
