Stan Getz - A Life In Jazz: A Musical Biography

This record reminded me how much more there was to Stan Getz than bossa nova...In a career that spanned Ella as well as his brushes with the young lions of the 60s (Chick Corea, Ron Carter, Grady Tate...) its that damn bossa nova period most folks know him for.



The track I want to serve up here is from his first record with Chick Corea, one often cited as the best song from his best record (and one written by Corea).



Enjoy.
