Must-have Getz!
Warren Weise | Lakeville, MN United States | 01/25/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Those who appreciate the artistry of Stan Getz simply won't want to miss this DVD! It finds Stan, pianist Kenny Barron and the rest of the group in top form live in Munich, Germany just a year before Stan's death. The program includes a nice mix of jazz standards (who plays Billy Strayhorn's "Blood Count" any better?) and selections from the "Apasionado" CD. Both audio and video are excellently captured in a beautiful concert venue. It's one thing to hear this jazz master perform but watching him do it adds yet another satisfying dimension to the performance. And watching the musical interplay between Stan and Kenny (whom Stan described as the other half of his heart) is fascinating. I would give this DVD my highest personal recommendation!"
Terrific Getz - a must have!
Martin S. Milgrim | Boynton Beach, FL | 02/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Captured on video and in excellent fidelity, this Munich concert is a wonderful display of the collaborative relationship of Stan Getz and the pianist, Kenny Barron. Considering that Stan had already been diagnosed with cancer and left us scarcely one year later, it's amazing how strong and convincing he sounds. Some great jazz standards(e.g., "Seven Steps to Heaven"), American pop standards (e.g., "What is This Thing Called Love") as well as a few titles that are unobtrusively augmented by synthesizers, it is an all around terrific document of a great artist. Highly receommended!"

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The last work of the greatest saxophonist that ever lived. What more can you say. He died the following year of lung cancer, yet was able to put forth the most mellow tones that this instrument is capable of producing. His accompaniament on piano, drums and base are just as inspired."

"If you are a Stan Getz fan, or just a fan of jazz,
get it. The other reviewer summed up the quality."
