"Stan the Man, the greatest Jazz saxophonist of all time, The Sound, recorded more albums with Verve than any other label. Also labels that Verve eventually bought out.
I have this album and I have Vol 1, too. And nearly all the albums these songs were taken from. While these are good performances of good songs, there seems to be something lacking when these gems are ripped out of their original settings. Works well as an intro or survey to albums you may not have, but songs like Corcovado (Getz/Gilberto), East of the Sun, and Rustic Hop have more feeling when listened to in the context of the original album as Getz intended.
so I can't get excited and give it a higher rating than this."
