Stan Getz – With Guest Artist Laurindo Almeida


Almeida composed the musically strongest number on this compilation and added to that he is also a virtuoso classical guitar player. Getz performs highly expressive solos but remains jazzy and favors long drawn-out improvisations.

Stan Getz’ fifth bossa nova LP was not a great sales success in the Sixties. The compositions were not at fault, nor was the somewhat forceful tone of the saxophone. More likely it was because the critics no longer regarded “New Wave” as new, and maybe they (unjustly) missed the melancholia of Astrud Gilberto’s singing on this album. Yet the voice of Brazilian singer Laurindo Almeida is full of spontaneity and inspiration, it is assured, full of freedom and expressiveness, which is not often found in such an amalgamation of jazz and Brazilian drive.
