Stan Getz: Here's That Rainy Day
Here’s That Rainy Day
Stan Getz (tenor sax)
Getz/Gilberto #2 – Stan Getz – Joao Gilberto Recorded Live at Carnegie Hall (Verve V-8623)
Composed by Jimmy van Heusen.
Recorded: Carnegie Hall, New York, October 9, 1964
Rating: 96/100 (learn more)
This album was a sequel to the first Getz/Gilberto record, which received nine Grammy nominations as well as great commercial success. But it’s not really #2, since there’s no Jobim or Astrud, and Getz and Gilberto never play together. In fact, this seems like two entirely separate albums -- one strictly jazz, and the other Brazilian; even the liners barely mention Gilberto’s trio. Nestled in this confusion is arguably the most beautiful version of “Rainy Day” that Getz ever recorded: his playing is exceptionally tender, while Burton’s shining vibes are the perfect complement to his velvety tone.
