DOWN BEAT original review: Stan Getz at the Shrine
“Stan Getz at the Shrine is Stan’s first concert album. The concert selections are all of considerable worth. Getz’ imaginative improvisational patterns continue to flow with rare taste and a moving emotional pulse. Recorded sound is the best Norgran-Clef has reached.” (Nat Hentoff)
