Overview

In March 1991, Stan Getz and Kenny Barron played four nights of duets at Café: Montmartre in Copenhagen. The performances were miraculous. In the candid, poignant liner notes he wrote for the original release, Kenny recalled: "Stan played exceptionally well, giving every solo his all. But I noticed after each solo that he was literally out of breath." Each night, they played two sets. On the last night, they played one of the finest sets of the engagement -- a parting gift of luminous inspiration. Yet afterward, Stan was in too much pain to continue and the second set was canceled. They played one more concert in Paris, Stan's final performance, and returned home, where he resolved to treat his illness with more conventional and aggressive means. He told Kenny that he hoped to tour again in the summer. That was the last time they saw each other. When Kenny called in May, Stan said he was feeling much better and that they would begin their next tour of Europe with a July 4 concert in Paris. He also spoke of how pleased he was with the Montmartre tapes.

In April, Jean-Philippe had brought the tapes to Stan's home in Malibu, where they spent ten days listening to them and choosing together the selections that would be released on the two discs of People Time -- an instant classic, released in 1992. Jean-Philippe remembers that "Stan was very serious about this album. For him it was a way to show to the world how great Kenny was. He was very insecure about himself but he was happy with the result." Let that suffice as a cue to emphasize the obvious: Stan Getz is the emotional pivot of this music, but People Time and -- to a far greater extent -- The Complete People Time are true duet performances. Kenny Barron's work here signifies not only a highpoint in his career but an insuperable, probably unique achievement in the annals of jazz piano. Garry Gidins
