- Truly superb sound for this incredible recording, Triple Plus (A+++) on the second side and Double Plus (A++) on the first
- Amazingly present, immediate and REAL — musically and sonically, this is one of our favorite jazz albums
- This is an incredibly tough album to find with the right sound and decent surfaces, which is the main reason it’s been years since we did the shootout
- 4 stars on Allmusic: “Highly recommended for all dimensions of jazz enthusiasts.” [We would of course give it the full 5 Stars]
This Stan Getz record has the kind of LIVE JAZZ CLUB SOUND that audiophiles like us (you and me) dream of. More importantly, this ain’t no Jazz at Some Stupid Pawnshop — this is THE REAL THING. Stan Getz, Gary Burton, Kenny Burrell and the lovely Astrud Gilberto, the living embodiment of Cool Jazz, are coming to a listening room near you.
This is about as good a copy as has ever hit the site. Fans of cool jazz — in point of fact, some of the coolest jazz ever recorded — take note.
