Stan Getz Quartet, live at the Newport Jazz Festival on July 3rd 1964

Having kick-started the bossa nova craze in 1962, Stan Getz achieved huge success in 1964 with The Girl From Ipanema, featuring Astrud Gilberto's unforgettable vocals. At the height of his acclaim that summer, he played the Newport Jazz Festival with the young Gary Burton in his band and guest appearances from Gilberto and his old sparring partner Chet Baker.

This rapturously received set, broadcast on Voice Of America Radio, is presented here with background notes and images.
