"The live record "Yours and Mine" (and its companion "Soul Eyes") are valuable and remarkable additions to the vast legacy of one of the greatest saxophone players in Jazz history. The two records contain 12 tunes Getz and his quartet recorded in Glasgow, Scotland, in June 1989 and 3 additional tracks from a gig in Denmark, recorded a month later. The liner notes state that the Glasgow date was "one of the days when everything was working", that puts it in a nutshell. Getz was in a great mood (listen to his zany comments after the first tune) and his superior talent got the necessary kick to yield a truly memorable record. So far, I considered "The Dolphin" his ultimate live record, but "Yours and Mine" is even better. He shines on ballads like "Yours and Mine" and "People Time", on up tempo rousers like "What Is This Thing Called Love" and on "Joanne Julia", a lovely reminiscence of his Bossa Nova days, when Getz became the most successful jazz musician in history. So, just sit back and relax and let an old friend soothe your soul with his utterly absorbing tone. This is a marvelous hour of Stan Getz at his best. Just great, if you are a Getz fan, and an incomparable experience if you're new to Stan Getz. You're in for a treat!"
