Getz's adventures in Latin rhythms were but a few months ahead; Tjader's were long established.
This San Francisco session is a wonder, featuring the monumental bassist Scott LaFaro, the superb drummer Billy Higgins, already-renowned pianist Vince Guaraldi, and the (still) unsung guitarist Eddie Duran.
"I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face" is Getz and Tjader at their ballad best; "Liz-Anne" gives him uptempo space. The Guaraldi-Duran-LaFaro team is best represented on "Crow's Nest," and Higgins is wonderful on "Ginza."
More than 40 years old, this is a jazz classic–a most important reissue.
