Unreleased, original remastered concert recording on 180-gram vinyl!
Impresario Norman Granz had moved to Switzerland in 1959. He coordinated his Jazz at the Philharmonic tours from there, which at that time were very successful in Europe. At Dusseldorf s Rheinhalle theater in 1960, Stan Getz took the stage with his own quartet. The playbill announced the saxophonist s Scandinavian band; however, prior to the tour he had dismissed several of its members and so the cast instead included Ray Brown and Ed Thigpen, two fellow Americans.
Approximately nine months after the concert in Dusseldorf, the expatriate made his comeback in the U.S. and shortly afterwards became world renowned not only among jazz enthusiasts but also with a much wider audience, thanks to the growing popularity of bossa nova music.
