Compilation of Live Performances On Vinyl LP!
This compilation contains live performances by Stan Getz accompanied by pianist Kenny Barron at the famous Copenhagen club Cafe Montmartre in 1987 and 1991. Bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Victor Lewis join Barron and Getz in the later sessions. A Wonderful survey of Getz’s late, live performances.
“Before his death after a several year battle with cancer, Stan Getz continued to release a flurry of outstanding recordings. Cafe Montmartre is a compilation of several live performances at the famous Copenhagen club with pianist Kenny Barron, selected from three earlier CDs, the 1987 quartet dates Anniversary! and Serenity, plus the two-disc set People Time from 1991. Getz was a masterful ballad interpreter and delivers an absolutely haunting, emotionally charged take of Billy Strayhorn’s “Blood Count” (written as its composer lay dying of cancer). Barron makes a strong case as one of Getz’s very best accompanists.” – allmusic.com
