Synopsis by Mark Deming
Stan Getz was known for having one of the purest and most distinctive tones of any saxophone player in jazz, but he also had a strong and melodic sense of phrasing as well as superb taste in material. His bossa nova recordings of the '60s brought a new Latin flavor to the jazz mainstream. Stan Getz: The Last Recording is a performance video which features the tenor giant's last known concert recording, shot only a year before his passing. Selections include "Apasionado," "Seven Steps To Heaven," "Lonely Lady," "What Is This Thing Called Love," "Coba" and more.
