Stan Getz & Cal Tjader Sextet
by Stan Getz
Released: Feb 1958
You want real ability? Getz and Tjader never even played together before they entered a Bay Area studio and cut this superb album in the same amount of time it takes to listen to it (neither Getz or Tjader even had time to record safety versions of the tunes)! Both musicians excelled at lyrical ballads and cool-toned bop, but interestingly, the speedy opening cut is a Brazilian samba that pre-dates bossa nova by a few years.
