A very interesting live set from 1969, and one that captures Stan Getz hanging in the balance between a number of different eras! He's playing here in a vein that's very similar to his work on the classic Sweet Rain album – with wonderfully rich emotional solos, filled with pain and longing – but the record also features touches of earlier bossa years, especially on the track "One Note Samba", which features an unnamed female vocalist! The group's a very hip one – with Stanley Cowell on piano, Miroslav Vitous on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums – and titles include "For Jane", "All The Things You Are", "Major General", "The Song Is You", "One Note Samba", and "Folk Tune For Bass". CD
Tommy Newsom on tenor and soprano saxaphones, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Snooky Young on trumpet and vocals, Ross Tompkins on acoustic piano, David Stone on acoustic bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. CD
Joe Pass and Herb Ellis on guitar, Monty Budwig on bass, and Colin Bailey on drums. CD

Kengo Kurozomi —
Still ... LP Columbia (Japan), 1983. New Copy (reissue)...
A sweet bit of mellow pop from Japan – served up by singer Kengo Kurozomi with all sorts of warm and laidback elements in the backings! The style is maybe between Japanese city pop and American AOR – definitely produced at a level that's right up there with the best of tthem – and Kengo's got this style that can be a bit deeper on the ballads, but light and playful when things get upbeat and catchy! Lyrics are all in Japanese, but song titles are in English – and include "Safe Breakers", "Heart Of New York", "Sappirine Cool", "High Noon", "Blinded By The Dream", and "Deja Vu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese Laser Vinyl Master pressing – with obi!)
