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!
