DOWN BEAT original review: Interpretations by the Stan Getz Quintet # 1 & 2
“The same is true of both volumes. It is consistently ‘distinguished jazz chamber music’. Everyone blows well and the sets are well recorded. The one original, a good one, is Brookmeyer’s. Package is factory sealed and on Vol.2 there’s a fine cover portrait of poll-winner Getz.” (Nat Hentoff)
