Organised jam sessions at New York’s legendary Birdland Club were broadcast twice weekly during the late ’40’s and early ’50’s and a baker’s dozen of tracks featuring the magnificent Miles Davis have been selected for this collection. The various pick-up line-ups included all the great jazz musicians of the era, and tenor sax genius Stan Getz can be heard here on several tracks beautifully complimenting Miles’ wonderful trumpet excursions. This album has been early issued on CD under the titles “Miles Davis: The Birdland Sessions” (1994), “Miles Davis: Out Of The Blue” (1997), “Miles Davis featuring Stan Getz : Birdland Days” (1991), “Miles Davis, Stan Getz: Move” (2003).

One of the all-time great tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz was known as “The Sound” because he had one of the most beautiful tones ever heard. Getz, whose main early influence was Lester Young, grew to be a major influence himself and to his credit he never stopped evolving.

Recorded live at Keystone Korner, San Francisco, May 11-16, 1976

Getz/Gilberto ’76 is an instant classic collection of never-before-released recordings captured May 11-16, 1976 at the legendary San Francisco jazz club Keystone Korner, showcasing the legendary Brazilian singer, guitarist and composer João Gilberto, accompanied by the saxophone icon Stan Getz and his rhythm section of pianist Joanne Brackeen, bassist Clint Houston and drummer Billy Hart. These recordings were made during João Gilberto’s and Stan Getz’s weeklong engagement at the Keystone, which took place nearly 12 years after the release of their initial award-winning album.
The first Getz/Gilberto album sold over one million copies and almost single-handedly launched the bossa nova craze in America and around the world. It’s been said that the hit single off that album, “The Girl From Ipanema,” is the second most recorded song of all time, behind only “Yesterday” by the Beatles. The 1976 Keystone engagement represents one of the very few times this famed duo reunited after their initial creative collaboration in 1962, and according to the club’s founder and owner Todd Barkan, this engagement was João Gilberto’s first public performance after a four year hiatus
Back in 2012, George Klabin and I assumed the guise of a couple of jazz loving Indiana Jones – type archeologists when we decided to take an adventure: we were going to go after the crown jewels of a riveting tape collection amassed by Todd Barkan, the legendary jazz impresario and owner of San Francisco’s iconic jazz club, Keystone Komer. Our adventure would take us deep into a treasure trove of live recordings made at the Keystone by the artists who played there.

Recorded live at Keystone Korner. San Francisco, May 11-16, 1976

Recorded the same week as Getz/Gilberto ’76, Resonance Records’ companion album, 2016’s Moments in Time, captures saxophonist Stan Getz performing live at San Francisco’s Keystone Korner in May 1976. To celebrate the release of Getz’s reunion album with Brazilian singer/guitarist João Gilberto, 1976’s The Best of Two Worlds, the saxophonist booked a week of shows at the Keystone backed by his quartet and featuring Gilberto. Whereas Getz/Gilberto ’76 showcases the Gilberto performances, Moments in Time finds Getz appearing alone with his band, featuring pianist Joanne Brackeen, drummer Billy Hart, and bassist Clint Houston. Despite the wealth and fame he accumulated from his initial 1960s bossa nova albums, Getz remained a creatively restless, forward-thinking artist over the coming years. His band here, arguably one of his best of the period, also bore this forward-looking vision out with performances that straddled the line between lyrical intimacy and aggressive, extroverted improvisation. One can also see where Getz’s taste was at the time based on his song choices, pulling together standards like “Summer Night” with more harmonically layered pieces like Wayne Shorter’s languid and sultry “Infant Eyes” and the funky Kenny Wheeler composition “The Cry of the Wild Goose.” As with Getz/Gilberto ’76, Moments in Time is a thoughtfully curated package featuring not only some of Getz’s best live performances of the period, but also liner notes from producer Zev Feldman, Keystone Korner club owner Todd Barkan, and others, as well as interviews with bandmembers Hart and Brackeen.

Recorded October 9, 1964 at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY.

This live follow-up to the surprise blockbuster Getz/Gilberto was inevitable. Interestingly, the original LP release of the October 1964 Carnegie Hall concert focused on separate sets by Getz’s quartet (featuring vibist Gary Burton) and Gilberto’s trio: each is as meditative and sweetly melancholic as you’d expect.

Big Band Bossa Nova is a 1962 album by saxophonist Stan Getz with the Gary McFarland Orchestra. The album was arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland and produced by Creed Taylor for Verve Records. Bossa nova means ‘new wave’ or ‘new trend’, and this album rode that wave, making No. 13 on the Billboard album chart in 1963 in the wake of the success of Jazz Samba (1962) and prior to the release of Getz/Gilberto (1964). Sandwiched as it is between the two classic albums of the era, it sometimes gets unfairly overlooked. The piano playing of Hank Jones is particularly good while Jim Hall plays acoustic guitar in the Charlie Byrd role. Four of the tracks are written by the arranger Gary McFarland, while the other tracks come from the Brazil’s Jobim, Gilberto and Bonfa; Getz recorded Jazz Samba Encore with Jobim and Bonfa a few months later in February 1963.

Recorded: August 27 (#5-8) and 28 (#1-4), 1962, at the CBS 30th Street Studio, New York City, New York, US.

Stan Getz almost single-handedly brought the bossa nova sound to the United States and helped create an international craze thanks to a series of albums he made in the early 1960s. On these albums, Getz teamed up with Brazilian bossa nova musicians and composers, masters of the craft like Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Gilberto and Gilberto’s wife, vocalist Astrud who would become world famous thanks to The Girl From Ipanema. This album, the second in the series, predates that song and was unusual for a bossa nova album of the time in that it was entirely instrumental, nonetheless very successful. Conductor Gary McFarland deserves a great deal of the credit for that success due to his magnificent big band arrangements.
