One Of Abbey Lincoln's Best Albums On Double LP!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

You Gotta Pay The Band is the second of ten albums Abbey Lincoln recorded for Verve in the 1990s. Produced by Jean-Philippe Allard at French Polygram Jazz, this session is also arguably one of the best of her career. For one thing, the choice of colleagues was exactly right for her sense of what music should be. She asked for Stan Getz, Allard produced him, and the result is some of Getz's most deeply and gently attentive playing on record.

Stan Getz is featured on one of his final recordings on this excellent Abbey Lincoln CD; Getz's cool tenor fits in very well with Lincoln's voice, making one wish that they had met up previously....Recommended.
