Previously unreleased recording live at the Village Gate, 3LP set!
A previously unreleased recording of master jazz saxophonist Stan Getz and his quartet, Getz At The Gate is a previously unreleased live recording from the historic Village Gate in New York City, recorded on Nov. 26, 1961. This release features an all-star, rarely heard quartet with pianist Steve Kuhn, bassist John Neves and drummer Roy Haynes (aka ‘The Boston Band'). Includes extensive liner notes by Boston jazz historian Bob Blumenthal.
The show was professionally recorded with a view to possible commercial release but, after those plans were forgotten, the tape sat in the vaults for 58 years. The recording serves as a priceless document of a direction that Getz, ultimately, did not follow.
Returning from a period of living in Europe, Getz put together this new quartet to pursue a slightly more modern and aggressive sound which was gaining ground, notably via John Coltrane's quartet, in which Kuhn had recently been playing. But in 1962, Getz's Jazz Samba album with guitarist Charlie Byrd heralded the start of the bossa nova boom, and steered the course of Getz's career for the following years.
