Billy Highstreet Samba Review

by Scott Yanow

During a period when Stan Getz was recording purely straightahead jazz for Concord, he joined up with keyboardist Mitchel Forman, guitarist Chuck Loeb, bassist Mark Egan, drummer Victor Lewis and percussionist Bobby Thomas, Jr., for this obscure session in France. First released in the U.S. in 1990, this finds the veteran tenor playing "contemporary" jazz, doing a good job of fitting into five Loeb and two Forman originals plus "Body and Soul." Not essential music but a fine example of Getz's flexibility and creative instincts.
