CD Reviews

SWEET GENTLE SAX
Beverly Praiswater | 04/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As smooth as honey and as fine as spun sugar, this cd flows gently from one song to the next in what appears to be an effortless musical session.

This collection of songs is played by a four-piece combo, yet the talent of these musicians create a subtle, but rich experience. Chick Corea who plays awesome piano wrote two of the songs. Other composers are Antonio Carlos Jobim and Dizzy Gillespie.

Highly recommended for all Stan Getz or Chick Corea fans, as well as anybody who appreciates fine mellow jazz."
This is Stan Getz' "Kind of Blue"

"There are some audiofile standards of reproduction that many with reason value, but I am a working class guy that grew up in the 50's. It didn't take a whole lot of technology back then to get lost "in the mystic". Get the best quality you can and enjoy!

I first heard this in the late 60's when it came out on vinyl. I was soooooo damn happy when it came out on CD. I will look again and see if there is a new pressing of this classic.

Getz was riding a perfect wave on this one. EVERYTHING IS RIGHT HERE! This is beautiful, sacred music from one of the masters. Stan took the Lester Young sensibility and kept developing it. This particular album is a refection of bop, model, latin and "New Thing". It also reflects a mutual admiration between Getz and Trane who loved each other's artistry very much.

Elegant beauty dwells here with a pulsing heart."
Getz looks forward in a true classic album

"For a lot of people who were familiar with Stan Getz, many associated him too closely as the Bossa nova king such as Gary Burton but this album refuted the point brilliantly. Not only was he a hard core bopper but he could do modal tunes like Chick Corea's "Litha", Mike Gibbs title tune, and Gillespie's perennial bop tune,"Con Alma. This last tune he plays to perfection but then just everything he does here is great. There are traces of the Coltrane influence in his sudden leaps on "Con Alma" and David Baker carefully annotated Getz's brilliant solo on this piece de resistance. And of course there is the beauty of his tone or "marshmellow" tone as Freddie Hubbard called it, in the bossa "O Grande Amor" which he brilliantly delinerates here. If you're ready to be converted, do check this album--it stands head and shoulders next to "Focus" as Getz's best!! Or as fellow friend/musician Miles Davis said in an interview, "He could play the telephone book and make it sound beautiful--he has so much taste!!" And John Coltrane who listed Stan as one of his favorites along with Dexter Gordon said. "Everyone should sound like that"."
