Featuring Astrud Gilberto
Berlin 1966 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Philharmonie, Berliner Jazztage, Berlin, Germany; November 4, 1966. Excellent satellite broadcast.

Thanks to taper and original uploader Hamhen; and to jazamo - all for sharing the tracks at Dime.

Jazamo notes:

I have seen only one other Live Show from the Bossa era for Stan (other than his commercial releases), and that one (Jazz Door Carnegie Hall 1964) didn’t include Astrud Gilberto. She has had very few shows pass thru here, all have had weak sound quality. This show was recorded at the end of the Bossa era, as Stan would go on to a new quartet with Chick Corea a year later. Thanks again to Hamhen for his fine capture.

From republicofjazz.blogspot:

Stan Getz leads a piano-less quartet at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 1966, with veteran drummer Roy Haynes, Chuck Israels replacing regular bassist Steve Swallow and a talented musician still in his twenties at the time, vibraphonist Gary Burton. Burton is doubly showcased by Getz in the vibraphonist’s tricky “Singing Song” and also dazzling the audience with his already well-developed four-mallet technique in a show-stopping solo interpretation of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Edelweiss” (from The Sound of Music). A part of this concert was released [on the Italian bootleg] as Two Sides Of Stan Getz (Unique Jazz UJ 033). There’s a great recording from the same time released on Verve’s Jazz in Paris series.
