Astoundingly Good Sound quality (Studio Recording)
Talk about spontaneity. The material that comprises Affinity was taped 35 years ago by Stan Getz’s brother-in-law, bassist Peter Silfverskjöld, during an after-supper jam session at the Silfverskjöold home — and was never intended for commercial release.
“The first time Stan and I played together was at my home in Lund when I was practicing with Lars. Stan played with us, convalescent following hospitalization from a life threatening pneumonia and entered the room in pyjamas and saxophone asking if he could sit in. We found no reason to refuse.
Since then we played and performed locally when he came to visit during years to come.
On this occasion (September 30th, 1977) Stan was invited for a shellfish meal together with a few of my (jazz) friends. I had borrowed a deck-tape recorder which I left on during the following jam session. As you can hear, the setting is very informal – eg: if you listen closely you can hear my grandfather’s clock chime and my then six year old son’s voice at times between tracks.
This recording was never meant to be released. However, Lars and I, have decided to share the music of this night with his many fans. Stan, in the best of mood, was playing beautifully.
P.S. The question still remains – who’s Snoopy? Snoopy was my ‘run-away’ Golden retriever who decided to return during the recording
