By the spring of 1960, Stan Getz was ready to leave Copenhagen and start travelling the continent with Norman Granz’ Jazz at the Philharmonic troupe, where, in Swedish pianist Jan Johansson, Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums, he had an excellent rhythm section to support the more lyrical and forceful playing he achieved in Europe. “He doesn’t seem dry and intellectual as he used to,” said one Danish jazz critic. “He has soul in every note he plays. Getz demonstrates that the modern school isn’t as bloodless as people have been thinking. He builds up his themes with unerring logic, and it is almost incredible that he can give his tone so much richness and fullness without vibrato…” It was a golden time for Getz, and all these qualities are evident in these concert performances recorded in Amsterdam, Dusseldorf and Zurich.
