"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 Cafe 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 (V/V 6-8548), which also stars Astrud's
husband Joao Gilberto as well, and this threesome's single from the album The
Girl From Ipanema was rapidly rising on the best-selling charts.
"...[T]he 45 rpm remastering brings the listener closer to that special night
in NYC and Gelder’s terrific tapes...Getz’s lyric tenor comes across with great
immediacy...this is a great jazz album of the bossa nova years." - John Henry, www.audaud.com
"This, is the stunning New Stan Getz Quartet with Astrud Gilberto at Cafe Au Go
Go. Reflected here are the excitement, warmth and communication of that
memorable engagement." -Gene Lees, from the liner notes of Getz Au Go Go
"Although the name Stan Getz (tenor sax) was initially synonymous with the
West Coast cool scene during the mid-to-late 1950s, he likewise became a key
component in the Bossa Nova craze of the early 1960s... Getz Au Go Go featuring
Astrud Gilberto (1964) was the second-to-last album that he would issue during
his self-proclaimed "Bossa Nova Era"— the final being Getz/Gilberto #2 [live]
(1964) concert title from Carnegie Hall. ... the focus of Getz Au Go Go steers
away from the Brazilian flavored fare, bringing Astrud Gilberto into the realm
of a decidedly more North American style. That said, there are a few Antonio
Carlos Jobim compositions — "Corcovado (Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars)" and "One
Note Samba" — both of which would be considered as jazz standards in years to
follow — as well as the lesser-circulated "Eu E Voco." - All Music Guide
