Stan Getz's career as a producer for Sony Music came late in his jazz career. Despite his personal issues, they never affected his music. On The Peacocks, he intended to spotlight pianist Jimmy Rowles with the tune "What Am I Here For?", and Rowles's own "The Peacocks" shows his swinging balladry. Getz also played with Elvin Jones and Buster Williams on a pair of Wayne Shorter pieces, plus Rowles's solo tracks. Getz plays with musical passion, extracting the core and the warmth of each tone. An exquisite display.
