Recorded on French TV in 1969.
This is one of those posts that I guess only jazz freaks like me and reader/blogger dblbasscleff are going to be into, but still . . . Flora with Stan Getz?? With Jack DeJohnette on drums??? And Miroslav Vitous on bass??? (Stanley Cowel, who I don’t know, is on piano). Stan Getz is pretty much the least interesting thing happening here, though the most famous at the time.
This is like watching giants of tennis play table tennis (not that there’s anything wrong with table tennis). So much waiting to be unleashed from Flora, Jack, and Miroslav, but you’d hardly suspect it. I love seeing Flora with the Austin Powers era look, and fun to watch her play guitar. I guess she was taking the mantle from Astrud Gilberto here, but only a few short years later she’s let her hair down, has gone wild, and is doing the Return to Forever classics.
