This live date, recorded and released in 1964, features the Stan Getz Quartet and the smooth, ever-charming vocals of Astrud Gilberto. Bossa nova dominates the set list, especially on the Astrud-fronted tracks "Corcovado (Quiet Night of Quiet Stars)" and "It Might As Well Be Spring."
Getz was no stranger to progressive tendencies, but GETZ AU GO-GO lays back in the cut, favoring the cool-toned bossa nova and mid-tempo grooves of his iconic, trendsetting disc GETZ/GILBERTO. This is never a drawback, especially considering Astrud's breezy, beautiful performances and the sweet chemistry of his group, which features the great Gary Burton on vibes. As well suited to providing classy background sounds as it is to concentrated listening, GETZ AU GO-GO is a thoroughly enjoyable cool-jazz classic.
