Recorded live in Europe during the summer of 1989, Soul Eyes offers a musical look into the heart and soul of one of the greatest musicians ever to play the tenor saxophone, Stan Getz. Getz' sweet tone and lyrical phrasing get right to the heart of each of eight selections, in an album of never-before-released tracks that reveal the master improviser at the peak of his creative genius. "By all accounts, Stan Getz was a true jazz genius, and one of those pioneering players who helped shape the state of this American art form. And he's still doing it, some six years after his death, through these previously unreleased gems, which...find Stan Getz as fresh as a spring rain and singing to the angels." - Wayne Thompson, Portland Oregonian FEATURING: Stan Getz - tenor saxophone Kenny Barron - piano Ray Drummond - bass Yashuito Mori - bass Ben Riley - drums
