Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes. Only 2,500 numbered edition copies worldwide.

It was one of those rare nights of absolute communication - the New York City opening of the New Stan Getz Quartet. Stan had chosen the Café Au Go Go for this occasion because of its fine acoustics and its intimacy. Atmosphere was paramount to the first New York presentation of the New Stan Getz Quartet and Astrud Gilberto because of the soft, easy quality of their music. Astrud had already won acclaim for her work with Getz in the album Getz/Gilberto, which also stars Astrud's husband Joao Gilberto as well, and his threesome's single from the album The Girl From Ipanema was rapidly rising on the best-selling charts. Reflected here are the excitement, warmth and communication of that memorable engagement.

Seek out an original instead of this one...

This is one of my all-time favorite albums and artists. So when I saw this, I 'knew' I had to have it... First, the good: The pressing is excellent. It is quiet and is above reproach. A little historical background: Though this album purports to be recorded live at the Cafe Au Go Go, historian Phil Schaap has previously reported that this release was actually recorded in the studio some months later and 'post processed' to add audience background. The bad: Perhaps it is the quality and high resolution of Bernie Grundman's mastering that brings it out, but the entire LP sounds over-processed, with the 'fake' reverb, added during the studio recording and/or processing, detracting from the integrity and sound quality of the album as a whole. The whole album sounds like it was recorded at the end of a long pipe. My advice: Pass on this release and find a mint copy of the original (like I did); you'll find it sounds much better and will likely cost less.


Fake money grabbing attempt - Buy a street copy instead

This ORG pressing sounds as if it was done from the CD! It is that bad. More than anything it is muffled - try and compare to any street copy and listen to "Quiet nights of quiet stars" when the Saxophone starts playing on the left hand side, few seconds into the song. If you cannot tell the difference than why look for expensive copies in the first place?

Ignoring the pressing, this recording is quirky: Fake hand clapping as if this was a live show. It sounds very cheesy and the hand clapping is different almost in every track. Sometimes it moves from the left speaker to the right as if done by amateurs (even to fake things requires minimum talent...). Secondly, every track is recorded differently. Some cleaner and clearer than others. For instance The "Telephone Song" is much cleaner and tonally accurate than "Only trust your heart" which sounds as if Astrud did not eat breakfast that day... Sometimes the bass is clipping. Not Verve's best effort. Buy a street copy for the content.


Excellent

Great pressing. Quiet. Flat.

Sonics were very pleasing. Wonderful vocalist, Astrud Gilberto.

Highly recommended.

P.S. We need more from ORG.
