Stan Getz: My Foolish Heart
Opening with a snappy "Invitation," this newly-found home recording shows off what producer Joel Dorn calls "prime Getz." Rodgers and Hart’s "Spring is Here" wafts and splashes through a fragrant rain chilled by Jack DeJohnette’s shivery brush work, but DeJohnette sharpens the tempo for Chick Corea’s "Litha," sparking Stan and Richie Beirach to burning life.

This is not another "Desafinado" compilation. This is Getz cookin’ it up with a team of ‘big name’ players. Dave Holland’s bouncy upright runs sound electric smooth, DeJohnette’s drums are sharp (occasionally distractingly so) and Beirach’s long solo on "Untitled" is limited in range but varied enough to keep interest until Stan’s revved-up return. The title track brings it all down a bit, allowing the blessed Baltimore audience to digest the group’s expressive beauty before they click back into Chick for a "Fiesta" finale.
