This open-air performance by the great Stan Getz was recorded in Mandavi vineyard, Napa, California in 1983. Stan is backed by a talented and sympathetic trio consisting of Victor Lewis on drums, Marc Johnson on bass and Jim McNeely on piano. Whether playing ballads, bebop or bossa nova the outcome is the same; a breathtakingly beautiful and unique tone at any tempo. The first three numbers are a samba, a waltz and a ballad all penned by Jim McNeely. The melodies are excellent and leave Stan with a free hand to improvise at will.
