Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto - Getz/Gilberto #2 (1965/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Stan Getz, João Gilberto
Title: Getz/Gilberto #2
Genre: Jazz, Bossa Nova, Brazilian Traditions, Cool Jazz
Label: © Verve Records
Release Date: 1965/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Duration: 34:59
Recorded: October 9, 1964, Carnegie Hall, New York City

Justifiably overshadowed by the peerless Getz/Gilberto album (which featured "Girl from Ipanema") from a year before, Getz/Gilberto #2 still holds its own with an appealing selection of fine jazz and bossa nova cuts. Unlike the first album's seamless collaboration by Getz, João Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, here Getz and João Gilberto turn in separate sets recorded live at Carnegie Hall in October of 1964. Backed by a stellar quartet comprised of vibraphonist Gary Burton, bassist Gene Cherico, and drummer Joe Hunt, Getz turns in a sparkling performances on the seldom covered ballad "Tonight I'll Shall Sleep with a Smile on My Face," while stretching out nicely on his original blues swinger "Stan's Blues." With the support of bassist Keeter Betts and drummer Helcio Milito, Gilberto displays his subtle vocal and guitar talents on a set of bossa nova favorites, including his own "Bim Bom" and Jobim's "Meditation." An appealing title amongst Getz's many bossa nova outings, but not an essential one. Newcomers should definitely start with the Getz/Gilberto album before checking this one out. --Stephen Cook

Eric Burdon - 'Til Your River Runs Dry (2013) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Eric Burdon
Title: 'Til Your River Runs Dry
Genre: Rock, blues, rhythm and blues, soul, funk, gospel
Label: © ABKCO Music & Records, Inc.
Release Date: 2013

Recorded: 2013

Eric Burdon never stopped working but he did effectively disappear, falling away from the spotlight sometime before the Animals were inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He kept touring, kept recording, but was decidedly underneath the radar until Bruce Springsteen made him a centerpiece of his 2012 South by Southwest keynote address, inviting the veteran rocker to share the stage with him later that night. Suddenly, Burdon was pushed into the spotlight and he capitalized upon his raised profile, cutting a quick and dirty indie EP with Cincinnati rockers the Greenhornes and then re-upping with Abkco (home of the Animals catalog) for 2013's 'Til Your River Runs Dry, his first high-profile record in eons and his first album of largely original material since 2004. At this late stage, Burdon isn't seeking reinvention -- he sticks to his basics, including two salutes to his hero Bo Diddley (one a cover; one a tribute) -- but he doesn't sound stale, either. He's engaging in the present by relying on his tradition, reviving the menacing minor-key rock of the Animals, touching upon a bit of War's multi-cultural funk, indulging his love of the blues, all while reflecting on mortality, waging a bit of social protest, recognizing that "Old Habits Die Hard," resisting the temptation to go gently into that good night. Burdon doesn't sound like a young man but he does sound invigorated, sometimes singing so passionately he teeters on the edge of self-parody, but that's the appeal of 'Til Your River Runs Dry: Burdon pours everything into this album, as if he realizes this is his last best shot to get the credit he's due. And, against all odds, he succeeds with this tough, flinty, proudly old-fashioned rock & roll album. --Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Stan Getz, Luiz Bonfa - Jazz Samba Encore! (1963/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Stan Getz, Luiz Bonfá
Title: Jazz Samba Encore!
Genre: Jazz, Bop, Bossa Nova, Brazilian Traditions, Cool Jazz, Samba, World Fusion
Label: © Verve Records
Release Date: 1963/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Duration: 43:47
Recorded: February 8, 9 and 27, 1963 at Webster Hall, New York.

Here's some more bossa nova from Stan Getz when the bloom was still on the first Brazilian boom. This time, however, on his third such album, Getz relies mostly upon native Brazilians for his backing. Thus, the soft-focused grooves are considerably more attuned to what was actually coming out of Brazil at the time. Two bona fide giants, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luiz Bonfá (who gets co-billing), provide the guitars and all of the material, and Maria Toledo contributes an occasional throaty vocal. Getz injects more high-wailing passages into his intuitive affinity for the groove, even going for some fast bop on "Un Abraco No Getz," and Bonfá takes adept care of the guitar solos against Jobim's rock-steady rhythm. Clearly Jobim's songwriting contributions -- "So Danco Samba," "How Insensitive," and "O Morro Nao Tem Vez" -- would have the longest shelf life, and though the album didn't sell as well as its two predecessors, it certainly helped break these tunes into the permanent jazz repertoire. Avid bossa nova fans will certainly treasure this album for the lesser-known Bonfá tunes. --Richard S. Ginell
