Stan Getz – East of the Sun (People Time)

I like Kenny Barron. But I also like Stan Getz. But which one is best? There’s only one way to find out. FIGHT!

Well alright maybe not. Perhaps just stick them together on a recording and let them play their favourite standards for 2 and a half hours. This is glorious music. Stan was nearing the end during this recording, and while some of the butter has gone from his tone, it only serves to make this music even more honest. This transcription is from the opening track of the double-album, and certainly well worth studying those lovely lines regardless of your instrument.
