i’m on a little mini-break, this august bank holiday weekend, and am feeling great between the break, seeing old friends, the amazing weather, etc etc etc. the trusty usb drive, however, is gathering dust at home as i forgot it. fortunately, a rather embarrassing number of usb “thumb” drives in the car manage between them to have something to play, including this extremely good show from 1966. i downloaded it 5 years ago this thursday, when jazamo reseeded it on dime. comments below are jazamo’s to which i have nothing to add.

jazamo show notes 8/9/2013:
i was listening to this the other day, just a fantastic set! classic stan in the bossa nova era, add to that the sweet vocals of astrud gilberto, early gary burton, & legendary drumer roy haynes, wow! great sound and performance, this re-broadcast show is re-seeded it’s original mp2 format, nothing touched, and micro-sized to fit any dime ratio (even the spank-ees). all praise goes out to the original seeder hamhen for his perfect capture, and as always your comments are welcome!
did i mention it sounds great? i have seen only one other show from the bossa era for stan (other than his commercial releases), and that one (jazz door carnegie hall 1964) didn’t include astrud gilberto. she has had very few show pass thru here, all have had weak sound quality. this show was recorded at the end of the bossa era, as stan would go on to a new quartet with chick corea a year later. thanks again to hamhen for his fine capture.
