Vital Vinyl Series 180g Vinyl LP Reissue!
Verve and Impulse! Records launch the new Vital Vinyl series with UMe, celebrating essential jazz LPs from the enduring catalogues of the two iconic labels. Throughout 2019, Verve and Impulse! will be making no fewer than 40 key albums from the 1950s, '60s and '70s available again on 180-gram vinyl. Each will feature their original cover artwork, track listings and liner notes. Some of these albums will become available for the first time in years, while others that are already in print will now be perennially available.
Stan Getz and Bill Evans are about as close as musicians can get in terms of artistry, musical philosophy, technique and personality. Even though each is a strong individual, their efforts on this LP reveal an unrivaled affinity. Recorded in 1964 but not released until 1973 with the subtitle Previously Unreleased Recordings, there was nor more logical coupling than Getz and Evans to demonstrate that modernism could still be melodic and harmonically challenging. It's a remarkable collection of stimulating swing, on a highly intellectual level.
