All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Aside from a series of studio sessions a decade earlier for Verve, this CD represents the only other meeting featuring Stan Getz with pianist Bill Evans. Originally issued by the notorious bootleg label Jazz Door with six selections from a Laren, Holland concert in 1974, Milestone acquired the masters for a legitimate release and added four bonus tunes from a concert in Antwerp, Belgium a week later. Getz meshes almost perfectly with Evans' trio with bassist Eddie Gómez and drummer Marty Morell, with only one sore spot: Getz ignored the pianist's request not to play the under-rehearsed "Stan's Blues," which provoked Evans into quickly dropping out and signaling his sidemen ...

Getz meshes almost perfectly with Evans' trio with bassist Eddie Gómez and drummer Marty Morell, with only one sore spot: Getz ignored the pianist's request not to play the under-rehearsed "Stan's Blues," which provoked Evans into quickly dropping out and signaling his sidemen to avoid solos of their own. But the remaining tracks are all invigorating, particularly Evans' brisk "Funkallero" and the lush take of Jimmy Rowles' ballad "The Peacocks." It seems a shame that there were not additional opportunities for Getz and Evans to work together on other occasions, but it is possible that their strong personalities would have clashed. Highly recommended!

    Evans & Getz - what else need be said??

    This is a must have for any fan of Evans - and for any fan of Getz. There were moments these two giants didn't hit it off, but not when they were playing. Listening to this and a later recording it is hard to believe there was ever any tension between them [probably related to Evans intensity and seriousness and Getz' unpredictability and often lackadasical approach to his career - but not to his music.
