Picks and Pans Review: Another World
He never gets that far out, but the veteran saxophonist, now 52, does explore something new: an "Echoplex" attachment that makes his tenor sax sound like two or three instruments at once. The effect is not unpleasant. Restrained as always, Getz uses the gimmick with special delicacy on his own Another World and the jazzman's standby, Willow Weep for Me. Getz also allows for plenty of tasteful electronic ruminating by his piano-Moog man, Andy Laverne. The result is a two-record set with the Latin touches and echoes of bebop typical of Getz—just the thing to go with a quiet conversation at fireside.
