Recorded: Pierce Hall, All Souls Unitarian Church, Washington D.C., February 13, 1962

Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original analog master tapes to vinyl and PCM. The DSD was sourced from the PCM. George listened to all of the different A/D converters he had before he chose which to use, and he felt the George Massenburg GML 20 bit A/D produced the best and most synergistic sound for the project.

The words “bossa nova” are often synonymous with the name Stan Getz. But North Americans might not have ever known the bright sound of bossa nova had it not been for Charlie Byrd. In 1961 Byrd returned from a tour of South America, where bossa nova music was thriving. The style was the invention of singer Joao Gilberto and songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim – an adaptation of infectious Brazilian samba rhythms with the harmonic structures and “cool” surface of West Coast jazz. Byrd brought back records for Getz to hear, they planned a session, and the result was Jazz Samba – the first album of true bossa nova music by jazz artists and the one that broke the bossa nova wave in 1960s America.

Hamp and Getz is an album by vibraphonist Lionel Hampton and saxophonist Stan Getz recorded in 1955 and first released on the Norgran label.

The Billboard review published at the end of December 1955 stated: “Hampton is the stronger spirit of the two, and under his spell, Getz plays a guttier, less inhibited horn than usual.” The Allmusic review awarded the album 4½ stars, stating: “The cool tenor of Stan Getz and the extroverted vibraphonist Lionel Hampton might have seemed like an unlikely matchup but once again producer Norman Granz showed his talents at combining complementary talents… Classic music from two of the best”.

Recorded: March 18–19, 1963 at A&R Recording Studios, New York City

Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound from the original analog master tapes to vinyl and PCM. The DSD was sourced from the PCM. George listened to all of the different A/D converters he had before he chose which to use, and he felt the George Massenburg GML 20 bit A/D produced the best and most synergistic sound for the project.
The original master tapes for this title had not been used since 1980 previous to this reissue. Also, for this Analogue Productions reissue the decision was made to master and present this album as it was originally mixed to master tape. With very few exceptions all versions of this title to date, including the original, have had the channels incorrectly reversed. With this version, you’ll hear this title as it was intended to be heard, without the channels reversed. And again, those reissues you’ve heard up until now – definitely still breathy, warm and rich – were made from something less than the master. Prepare to hear the veil removed
Astrud Gilberto says that her husband, Joao, informed Stan Getz that she “could sing at the recording.” Creed Taylor recalls that it took Getz’s wife, Monica, to get both Astrud and Joao into the recording studio; Mrs. Getz had a sense that Astrud could make a hit. And Getz himself is on record saying that he insisted on Astrud’s presence over the others’ objections. So who’s right? What does it matter? The Gilbertos, Getz and the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim followed up the bossa nova success of Jazz Samba with this, the defining LP of the genre. With one of the greatest hit singles jazz has ever known – each one who hears it goes “Ahhh!”

Stan Getz & Bill Evans is an album by jazz saxophonist Stan Getz & pianist Bill Evans recorded in 1964 for the Verve label but only 1st released 1973.

Includes liner notes by James Isaacs. Digitally remastered by Dennis Drake (Polygram Studios).The only studio meeting between Stan Getz & Bill Evans took place over 2 days in 1964, with the aggressive drummer Elvin Jones & either Richard Davis or Ron Carter on bass. It is peculiar that Verve shelved the results for over a decade before issuing any of the music, though it may have been felt that Getz & Evans hadn’t had enough time to achieve the desired chemistry, though there are memorable moments. The punchy take of “My Heart Stood Still,” the elegant interpretation of “Grandfather’s Waltz,” & the lush setting of the show tune “Melinda” all came from the 1st day’s session, with Davis on bass. (Evidently he was unavailable the following day, so Carter replaced him.) Evans’ driving, challenging “Funkallero” is the obvious highlight from day 2, though the gorgeous “But Beautiful” & the breezy setting of “Night & Day” are also enjoyable. Only the brief version of “Carpetbagger’s Theme,” which seems badly out of place & suggestive of the label’s interference with the session, is a bit of a disappointment. (It’s not included on this SHM version) Obviously neither Getz nor Evans liked the tune, as they go through the motions in a very brief performance. [Some reissues add 3 unissued alternate takes, though additional material from the sessions was included in the box set The Complete Bill Evans on Verve.]~ Ken Dryden
