This is a very impressive recording, the musicians seem to be right in the living room. I had to turn down the bass, though. There is a very strong and somewhat humming low-frequency sound originating from Brian Bromberg's bass.
classic ultra smooth getz
Toujours un plaisir de découvrir ces enregistrements rares et d'une qualité qui me laisse toujours pantois !

Stan Getz needs no introduction. Getz was a wonderful musician, here caught with younger players lending a modern touch to the proceedings. More to the point, Getz improvises as well as I have ever heard him, especially on the final performance on this tape, “Big, Tiny, Little.” As an added bonus, the drumming on that same tune is spectacular. The full quintet is recorded at the Educational Center for the Arts in New Haven, Connecticut, with only two spaced B&K omni instrument mics (a very rare mic configuration for jazz quintets). Unlike most multi-microphone recordings, none of the instruments are shoved in the listener’s face. The result is a natural and organic sound.
