Re: Getz and Gilberto - better than Kind of Blue on SACD?
Without a doubt, this is a great record. One that got played quite a bit. And, I will have to pick this up on SACD. Is this better than Miles? I would have to say, both titles meant a lot for jazz and bossa Nova, or really Brazilian jazz. So, I don`t think a comparison is fair.
However, Miles may get a slight edge in my opinion.
BUT, and this may surprise you Jerry. My introduction to Astrud Gilberto came on CTI`s recording, "Astrud Gilberto." A beautiful cd, and a must have. Lush strings with great sidemen, I was blown away by her voice and the brazilian sound. With one of my favorite tenor sax players backing her up, Stanley Turrentine, this cd is great. Favorites: Wanting Things, Brazilian Tapestry, To a Flame (beautiful flute solo by Hubert Laws), and Vera Cruz with Stanley rocking on the sax.
