That Getz/Evans album was blocked for several years due to a clause in Stan's contract giving him veto power. It was mainly Bill who wasn't happy with the album. Eventually the record company decided to ignore that clause in the contract and release it anyway. Any other pianist would probably have considered it the high point of their career, but it wasn't up to Bill's standards. However, more recently, a much better collection of live performances of Stan and Bill has been released, this time with Bill's regular trio. Fabulous stuff!
