This enduring Stan Getz recording beautifully reveals the essence of one of jazz’s eternal tenor saxophone masters. His inimitable melodicism, fluid virtuosity, seemingly infinite inventiveness and heartfelt lyricism are pure genius—or, quite simply, Pure Getz. The remarkable clarity and realism of this special Super Audio CD release virtually puts the listener right in the recording studio with Getz and his quartet.

Stan Getz’s 1982 band featured the harmonically advanced pianist Jim McNeely, bassist Marc Johnson and drummer Victor Lewis; Billy Hart fills in for Lewis on three numbers. This date sticks (with one exception) to high-quality jazz standards, some of which (“Sippin at Bell’s”) are not performed all that often. Getz is particularly swinging on “Tempus Fugit” and quite lyrical on Billy Strayhorn’s “Blood Count”.
