About the album
Back in 1960 the great promoter of Jazz Norman Granz organized another Jazz At The Philharmonic (JATP) concert tour through Europe with the Oscar Peterson Trio, the Stan Getz Quartet and the Miles Davis Quintet. On April 8, 1960 these giants of Jazz gave a memorable concert at the Kongresshaus in Zurich. This Volume (29) contains the concert of the Stan Getz Quartet. This concert recording will probably rank as one of the greatest recordings by Stan Getz. Sit back and just listen and get carried away. A real discovery is pianist Jan Johansson from Sweden whom Getz met while living in Scandinavian countries late fifties/early sixties.
The two other concerts of the same evening (Oscar Peterson TCB 02302 – released as of July / Miles Davis TCB 02312 – released as of August) will follow this CD shortly. An indepth monographie about this Zurich concert of these 3 giants will be published in 2013 by Edition Olms and written by Olivier Senn of the University Lucerne, Jazz department.
