One of the biggest-selling jazz albums of all time, not to mention bossa nova’s finest moment, Getz/Gilberto trumped Jazz Samba by bringing two of bossa nova’s greatest innovators — guitarist/singer João Gilberto and composer/pianist Antonio Carlos Jobim — to New York to record with Stan Getz. The results were magic. Ever since Jazz Samba, the jazz marketplace had been flooded with bossa nova albums, and the overexposure was beginning to make the music seem like a fad. Getz/Gilberto made bossa nova a permanent part of the jazz landscape not just with its unassailable beauty, but with one of the biggest smash hit singles in jazz history — “The Girl From Ipanema,” a Jobim classic sung by João’s wife, Astrud Gilberto, who had never performed outside of her own home prior to the recording session. Beyond that, most of the Jobim songs recorded here also became standards of the genre — “Corcovado” (which featured another vocal by Astrud), “So Danço Samba,” “O Grande Amor,” a new version of “Desafinado.” With such uniformly brilliant material, it’s no wonder the album was such a success but, even apart from that, the musicians all play with an effortless grace that’s arguably the fullest expression of bossa nova’s dreamy romanticism ever brought to American listeners. Getz himself has never been more lyrical, and Gilberto and Jobim pull off the harmonic and rhythmic sophistication of the songs with a warm, relaxed charm. This music has nearly universal appeal; it’s one of those rare jazz records about which the purist elite and the buying public are in total agreement. Beyond essential.

Verve Records have released a live album, recorded on November 26th 1961 at New York’s famous jazz club, Village Gate. On stage are Stan Getz and his new quartet comprising of pianist Steve Kuhn, double bass player John Neves and drummer Roy Haynes. Although the recordings were set aside after that night and had ended up in the record company’s archives, 58 years later, they have now re-emerged with flawless sound. Getz at the Gate understandably arouses much interest as the saxophonist’s artistic direction throughout the entirety of the 2 hours 20-minute concert is one that he did not pursue thereafter.

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.
