Does "4.XI.1966" mean that it was recorded Nov. 4?  This is memorable to me because it was the day my first nephew was born.

We spoke the other day of the Paul Bley album Copenhagen and Haarlem.  One of those performances was recorded on that date as well.

How is Sony putting this out when Getz was under contract to Verve at the time? Verve issued recordings on both sides of this date, including a live date from Paris 9 days after this one, so it's unlikely he was free agent here.

I wonder if that "Distribution Sony Music Entertainment" is just there to cover up the bootleg nature of this release? I have to give them credit though - it is a nice looking boot (if that's what it is).

Thanks for posting about this.  I look forward to any "new" music from the short-lived Getz group with Gary Burton (and Roy Haynes here, too!).  I will definitely have to add this to the "want list".

Has their Blakey 1958 recording been previously released?

Funny how a literal translation can come out screwy: "As if time had stopped, the hesitant delicacy of Astrud's white voice, set in the misty, iridescent tones of Gary Burton's vibraphone and magnified by the aerial counterpoints of Stan Getz's saxophone, recaptures the freshness and innocence of the mythical 64 recording."

Yes, blanche translates to white but voix blanche translates to something completely different. In fact, it roughly translates to toneless or bland. Which is worse - the poor translation or the poor choice of the French descriptor? :)

In classical music terms, voix blanche refers to a singing technique characterized by a higher-than-usual larynx position. This produces a lighter, more flexible tone that expresses joy, happiness, etc. Compare this to voix sombre with its lower larynx position, which creates a more powerful tone that is better suited to expressions of sadness and grief.

Pretty sure this was the first release.
