I said just before: This session was magic! Unfortunately because Stan descovered his sikness...Fortunately because 4 wonderful musicians was in the same time on the same way...
Stan here is magnetic!..And celestial! I know this solos perfectly..there is something of metaphysician inside! Thank you Bev for this great gift to us.

Stan had such a command on modern tunes like this- he'd bring out the melodic and just cook it till it boiled. A JOY TO LISTEN TO.
Not to mention- he had a dynamic in his sound that carried/projected live and you can hear it on this. I always dug the forward motion of Stans style. The sound he had in the 50's was so intoxicating. Loaded with everything- yet he built every step after that by going FORWARD not just staying there and wallowing in something that WAS done. Hence- FORWARD MOTION.
Guys today need to study Stans entire recorded career. It's a lesson in style and personal dedication to the art form. THIS VIDEO, sure proves Stan was a master innovator.

I'm inspired to say the least. Can you tell :)

Wow... well that just blew my head wide open Tim!! You say the things I think and feel, but not being a musician, cannot express! Did you know that one of Stan's favorite expressions was "Don't let grass grow under your feet"!! (-"

Thanks Tim! So glad to see you here!

Stan Getz is one of the jazz world's most memorable heroes of the music. He also possessed the genuis to continually choose great sidemen/women - musicians who both complimented what he (Getz) was doing and also pushed /motivated him.

These videos are pure magic; thank you, Bev!
