Stan Getz, one of the most gifted and influential of American jazzmen of his time and a consistent favorite of the U.S. public, was living since July 1958 in a small town outside Copenhagen, where he had started a new life. Like many American expatriate jazzmen, he found the relaxed European lifestyle more conducive to his creativity; there was more time to develop and try out new ideas. It was to prove an artistically flourishing and assertive time for him.
The fifth night of the 1995 European Tour – the band roll into Zurich. While waiting for definitive notes from Sid the Smith, we have Stormy’s show notes. He has repaired the opening notes of VROOOM, which were missing from the DAT, and his personal highlights were Coda Marine 475, Frame by Frame, The Soundscape into B’Boom, the Thrakking, People, and a well-paced Sleepless (he’s a drummer. He should know). In his words a “good show overall”.
