Regarded as two of the most expressive and lyrical musicians in the history of jazz, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz and trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker certainly lived up to their well-deserved reputations in this never-before-released recording. Quintessence, Volume I. The result heard here is greater than the sum of the considerable parts, as Getz and Baker do exactly what they've always done best - delivering cool, relaxed and swinging renderings of tasty jazz standards. The all-star Stan Getz Quartet rhythm section - Jim McNeely (piano), George Mraz (bass), Victor Lewis (drums) - provides the perfect backdrop for a quintessential performance by two of jazz's master craftsmen.
