Stan Getz in Lugano 1989

stanStan Getz in Lugano, 1989

 

Sometimes you just have to give up. Already a while ago I found in Ottos Flückiger’s collection a VHS cassette featuring about 45 minutes of Stan Getz’ appeareance at the Estival Jazz Lugano in 1989. Unfortunately picture and sound were absolutely out of synch. When I fixed the start of the sound to the start of the movie, it sounded quite right at first. But this went along well only for the first ten minutes. After that the pictures move slower than the sound, then suddenly they run faster again. Fixing this would just be too much work for me.

In the fine ten minute portion I could restore, you’ll hear and see Stan accompagnied by Kenny Barron (p), Yasuhito Mori (b) and Ben Riley (dr) playing Kenny Barron’s “Feijoada” (Thanks, Ehsan!). A Feijoada by the way is a very tasty thing, just ask any Brazilian.  I once had the pleasure to be invited to a Feijoada dinner – lots of stuff with a hearty taste! Unfortunately the theme reprise for this Feijoada here is missing, the sound goes totally out of synch before the tunes comes to its end, so I cut it off.

 

Enjoy!

  2. a) The tune is Barron’s composition, “Feijoada”.
    b) Always surprised, elevated and stunned by Barron.
    c) What is happening during your digitizing process is the frame rate difference between the recorded material (must be 24-25 fps) with the capturing device that usually captures at 29 fps.

    and thanks for the wonderful music!

    • Thanks, Ehsan!

      Will add that information

      I never had so much trouble synchronizing as with this one. Fitting starts to starts and ends to ends does not help as the relation between sound and video keeps changing all the while. And right after I faded out there is no sound at all for a minute or so …
