Stan Getz - Joao Gilberto:


(Getz, tenor saxophone; Gilberto, vocal)

from ‘Getz - Gilberto’ Verve

Gilberto and Getz made an album together? Stan plays good on that. I like Gilberto; I’m not particularily crazy about just anybody’s bossa nova. I like the Samba. And I like Stan, because he has so much patience, the way he plays those melodies - other people can’t get nothing out of a song, but he can. Which takes a lot of imagination, that he has, that so many other people don’t have.

As for Gilberto, he could read a newspaper and sound good! I’ll give that one five stars.
