That was the best rendition of "Woody'n You" I've ever heard.
S. Rollins and Johnny Griffin were great on this one but Getz was just incredible. may that's why they called he "The Sound'

The graceful swing. The sweet times of the early 60's. The hey days of the Acoustic era. Kennedy just elected in the US. Getz at his peak. Look at that technique... those fingers barely seem to move. And the Europeans who always seemed to be hipper and appreciated jazz ... like the Japanese. Can't you just taste the smoke filled air ... Italian Cigarettes, Pasta, Capuccino and Wine, Cognac and the great Getz.... What a night that must have been. And me... 16... living in the Midwest...cruising through the summer night..in my Corvair...clueless but thinking there is some great music out there happening ...somewhere.... and there was...that night in Italy and 6000 Miles away and a year later, in Brazil... Vinicius de Moraes would watch a cute girl at the beach and scribble down lyrics about her that would find their way to Jobim who put them to music that would find their way to Getz great ears and find life through that magic Selmer. And careers are changed and made. Ahhh the dance. Great posting.
