Heavenly Stan
Jazzcat | Genoa, Italy Italy | 12/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a review that I write with extreme pleasure because it's about a couple of discs that I really love since they came out in 1991. I'm talking about "Serenity" and "Anniversary" which are two albums that were recorded both July the 6th 1987 at Cafè Montmartre in Copenhagen. I remember that I heard that Stan already know to be at the end. He gave all that he still had inside here, he played here some of the best music of his life. No doubt. His sound was better than ever, his phrasing absolutly magnificient, unequalled. He was accompanied here by a very talented band, Kenny Barron piano, Victor Lewis drums and Rufus Reid double bass. They swang here as it was the most natural thing to do on Earth. The program is based on standards and it is exceptionally well balanced. It is even a very nice live recording, I may called it almost a "reference" album because it is very natural sounding. I mean, if you want some truly stellar Jazz, some truly stellar ballads and swinger standards, a master at the top of his game ... well let's begin buying these two discs from the immortal Stan getz. Some of the best music he played in his illustrious 5 decades career. You won't regret a single cent spent here. It's some of the best music I have ever listen to in more than twenty years of jazz. Buy both the albums and get the full picture of an heavenly Stan Getz. Maybe you can buy "People time" too. It's a recording that was made in this same period, a double cd set based on Stan and Kenny Barron duets. Fantastic. Believe me."
Exuberant, sparkling! | Portland, Oregon | 08/25/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the second CD culled from the concert which produced the classic, "Anniversary!," and the energy here is not diminished. Getz is buoyant and lyrical as we would expect, with mirthful arpeggios and soulful moans. The rhythm section swings hard. But this CD has a quality which is rare outside of hearing jazz live -- a sparkling immediacy which is exhilarating."
Desert island album

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD back in the early 90's and have yet to find any album by anyone that can top it. If I had to take one CD to a desert island, this would be it. Stan was the best, and this is his finest overall disk. Kenny, Victor and Rufus are the perfect match. Energy, sublime finesse, gorgeous sound quality, inventive, the right amount of each component that goes into a great jazz album, ahhhhhhh."
