The Jazz Record Art Collective presents the Greg Fishman Quartet performing Stan Getz’ 1967 release, Sweet Rain.
Sweet Rain was Stan Getz's first major artistic coup after he closed the book on his bossa nova period, featuring an adventurous young group that pushed him to new heights in his solo statements. Pianist Chick Corea, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Grady Tate were all schooled in concept of rhythm-section freedom which allowed their interplay to open things up for Getz's long, soulful explorations.
Chick Corea's subtle touch leaves plenty of room for Getz's ideas alongside the busily shifting rhythms of the bass and drums, heard to best effect in Corea's challenging opener "Litha." The repertoire also features another Corea original "Windows", the typically lovely Jobim tune "O Grande Amor," and Dizzy Gillespie's Latin-flavored "Con Alma." The quartet's level of musicianship remains high on every selection and the marvelously consistent atmosphere the album places it among Getz' very best. A surefire classic.
