Stan GetzCaptain Marvel ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A wicked album that's one of Stan Getz's best from the 70s! The record features Stan reunited with Chick Corea, whose warm lyricism was the lynchpin in Getz's landmark Sweet Rain – the stunning session from 1968 that is perhaps our favorite-ever Getz album. Corea plays electric piano here, but with none of the indulgence that he was lapsing into at the time. His blocky chords stake out a stark new territory, into which Getz solos beautifully, into a range yet untapped at that time in his career. Tony Williams augments the group on drums, giving the whole thing a sense of freedom, but also a nice tight swing. Tracks include "La Fiesta", "Five Hundred Miles High", "Times Lie", and "Day Waves".

Stan GetzCool Velvet – Stan Getz & Strings ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good ... $4.99
An incredibly haunting session that has Stan's edgey alto fronting some of Russ Garcia's arch-modernist string arrangements – similar to those that he contributed to other Verve albums of the same style. Getz maintains a wonderfully breathy tone that floats above the orchestrations, and the album's a real winner that shows a side of Stan that wasn't always captured by Verve. Titles include "Round Midnight", "Nature Boy", "It Never Entered My Mind", and "Early Autumn". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzEarly Stan ... LP
Prestige, 1949/1954. Very Good ... $9.99
A 60s album that collects earlier 10" sessions by Stan – one from 1949, and one from 1954! The 1949 sessions have Stan playing in a group with Terry Gibbs, Shorter Rogers, and George Wallington – on tunes that include "Michelle (parts 1 & 2)", "T&S", "Cuddles", and "Terry's Tune". The 1954 sessions are a bit more in the classic "Early Stan" mode – as they feature Getz working in a quintet with Jimmy Raney on guitar and Hall Overton on piano – very much in the Roost mode that first got Stan his fame, with that amazing tone really opening up on numbers that include "Motion", "Lee", "Signal", and "Round Midnight".

Stan GetzLong Island Sound ... LP
Prestige/New Jazz, 1949/1950. Good+ ... $9.99
12" LP reissue of material that Getz cut a lot earlier for Prestige – sides that were done in the years 1949 and 1950, featuring groups with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter or Gene Ramey on bass, and either Roy Haynes or Stan Levey on drums. The sound is cool and Lester Young-ish, and Stan's tone is great, even at this early stage. Titles include "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Long Island Sound", "Marcia", "Indian Summer", "Crazy Chords", and "What's New". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original purple label New Jazz pressing, with a deep groove and RVG etch. Vinyl is nice and clean, but cover has some water wrinkling on the bottom half – which oddly looks not bad on front, given the water effect and image.)

Stan GetzStan Getz At Large ... LP
Verve, 1960. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A tremendous start to the 60s for the legendary Stan Getz – a unique double-length album recorded in Copenhagen – and filled with some of his best work on record to date! There's a quality here that shows a whole new side of Getz – one that's slightly modern at times, but also slightly more introspective – a real hint at greater genius to come later in the 60s, but already fully in flower here in the setting of a European quartet with pianist Jan Johansson. Stan's still blowing a bit like on some of his earlier Verve albums – but there's also an edge that was never there before – a sharpness, a growing darkness, and more – all served up with a sense of tension that almost comes out best on the mellowest tunes. 2LPs worth of material – with titles that include "Amour", "Pammie's Tune", "Night & Day", "Land's End", "In Your Own Sweet Way", "In The Night", "Folks Who Live On The Hill", "Just A Child", and "Cafe Montmartre Blues".

Stan GetzStan Getz At The Shrine ... LP
Norgran/Verve, Early 50s. Very Good- 2LP Box ... $44.99
The rare 2LP version of Stan Getz At The Shrine – a classic west coast recording by Stan – recorded at the Shrine Theater in LA, with a group that includes Bob Brookmeyer on trombone and John Williams on piano! The groove is more similar to Stan's eastern sides of the time, given his bandmates here – but the sound is still quite wonderful, and almost a relaxed Verve answer to the sound of some of the Pacific Jazz dates of the period. Rhythm is by Bill Anthony on bass and either Frank Isola or Art Madigan on drums – and titles include "Flamingo", "Lover Man", "Pernod", "Tasty Pudding", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Open Country", "We'll Be Together Again", and "Feather Merchant".

Roost, Early 50s. Poor ... $4.99
Beautiful early bop material by Getz – recorded at Storyville with a crack little combo that includes Al Haig on piano and Jimmy Raney on guitar. The Raney/Getz sound is a great one – with Raney's jangly guitar notes providing a nice edge for Getz's smoother alto. Titles include "Rubberneck", "Signal", "Hershey Bar", and "Move". Nice cover image too – different than other volumes! LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzSteamer ... LP
Verve, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
The title may be a bit strangely put – as "Steamer" isn't a word that we'd necessarily think to use with the gently flowing tenor tone of Stan Getz – but that doesn't stop the album from being a great one, and perhaps in Getz-like terms, it might well have a bit more steam than usual! The album features Getz in a quartet with a nicely flowing groove – nicely vamping piano from Lou Levy in the background on most numbers, and a definite edge in the lead tenor solos – still blown with the warmth of earlier Getz recordings, but perhaps showing some of the modern flourishes to come. Bass is by Leroy Vinnegar and drums are by Stan Levey – and titles include "Blues For Mary Jane", "There'll Never Be Another You", and "You're Blase". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzSweet Rain ... LP
Verve, 1967. Good Gatefold ... $3.99
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz again! The tracks are all long, sweeping, and very spiritual – and the group's a soulful batch of freer players (Chick Corea on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Grady Tate on drums) – all of whom really open Stan up, and drive him to give out some of the best solos of his careers, with a tone that's completely sublime. All tracks are long, and the album includes an amazing version of Corea's "Litha", plus the cuts "Windows", "Con Alma", and "O Grande Amor". One of our favorite jazz albums ever!

Stan Getz & Charlie ByrdJazz Samba ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
One of those records that no home should be without – not only a pivotal album in the growth of bossa nova in the 60s – but a set that also really helped set the career of tenorist Stan Getz on fire! The real credit here might almost go to guitarist Charlie Byrd – as Byrd was a big early proponent of bossa nova rhythms, and had already been experimenting with them on his records of the time – yet also gets a key extra "umph" here in the presence of Stan's tenor – a bold, rich, soulful sound that really helps give the music a lot of direction – in ways that still resonate strongly all these many years later! Getz is completely sublime – a master of tone and timing throughout – and perfectly fit to these tunes. Rhythms are mostly from Byrd's trio, augmented with some extra percussion – and titles include the classic "Desafinado", plus "E Luxo So", "Samba Dees Days", "Samba Triste", "O Pato", "Samba De Uma Nota So", and "Baia". LP, Vinyl record album

Resonance, 1976. Near Mint- ... $14.99
Never-heard music from a rare mid-70s reunion of the team of Stan Getz and Joao Gilberto – playing together here live and with a sense of depth that goes past their famous 60s recordings! The material is from the same period as the pair's album for Columbia Records – and is recorded at the Keystone Korner nightclub, with a group that includes Joanne Brackeen on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Hart on drums. Joao sings a bit, alongside his guitar – and titles include "Eu Vim Da Bahia", "E Preciso Perdoar", "Doralice", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Luiz BonfaJazz Samba Encore! ... LP
Verve, 1963. Very Good- Gatefold ... $11.99
Hardly an "encore" of the first Stan Getz Jazz Samba album – as this set's got a slightly different feel, and lots of great elements that make it really unique! This time around, Brazilian musician Luiz Bonfa is on guitar – already a skilled proponent of the bossa by the time of the record, and arguably one of the few who really got it going back home in Rio. Stan's tenor sounds wonderful – as carefully and soufully blown as on the first set, but also with some new colors and tones too. Bonfa's wife Maria Toledo sings a bit on the record – hinting at Stan's work to come with Astrud Gilberto (this album was cut right before the Getz/Gilberto collaboration) – and the record also features added work on piano and guitar from the great Antonio Carlos Jobim – more than enough proof that the album's got a pure bossa pedigree! Titles include "Menina Flor", "Ebony Samba", "Saudade Vem Correndo", "Sambalero", "Samba De Duas Notas", and "Mania De Maria". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz with Joao GilbertoBest Of Two Worlds ... LP
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A wonderful return ot the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the initial bossa years – and Stan's tenor sounds great in the setting, with those loose yet heartfelt lines we love so much from this period! Joao's great too – somehow even more "present" on the record than before, with that amazing ability to do so much with so little – as on some of his own great 70s recordings. Miucha contributes some English language vocals to the record alongside Joao's Portuguese ones, and Oscar Castro Neves handled the arrangements with a nicely stripped-down style that has plenty of focus on the percussion and rhythms. Titles include a sublime English language version of "Aqua De Marco (Waters Of March)", plus the tracks "Double Rainbow", "Falsa Bahiana", "Ligia", "Izaura", "Eu Vim Da Bahia", and "E Preciso Perdoar".

✨✧ Stan Getz/Bob BrookmeyerStan Getz/Bob Brookmeyer – Recorded Fall 1961 ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A great lost Verve album that stands as one of Stan Getz's best sessions from the early 60s – a brilliant pairing with Bob Brookmeyer that shows just how much each player had grown in the past decade! There's a strongly modernist feel to the record – more Brookmeyer's influence than Getz's usual bag – with long tracks that move almost airily at times, and which feature some beautiful interplay between tenor and trombone. Rhythm is by a very hip trio of Steve Kuhn on piano, Roy Haynes on drums, and John Neves on bass – and the work's got a great balance between freedom and more focused blowing! Titles include "Minuet Circa 61", "Thump, Thump, Thump", and "Who Could Care". LP, Vinyl record album

An excellent one from Getz – recorded here as the lead soloist over backings composed by Eddie Sauter, designed to accompany the film Mickey One, an early directorial effort from Arthur Penn (and starring Warren Beatty as well!) The score has a very edgey quality to it, and Getz's playing is superb – a clear contrast to his breathier bossa work of the same vintage, and proof that he was growing tremendously as a player at the time. Titles include "Where I Live", "The Creature Machine", "Morning Ecstasy", "As Long As I Live", "Mickey's Theme", and "On Stage". LP, Vinyl record album

Bob BrookmeyerBob Brookmeyer & Friends ... LP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good ... $3.99
Sound, space, tone, and color – a tremendous effort from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, and a record with a really unique feel! The album features a wonderful group that includes Brookmeyer on valve trombone, Stan Getz on tenor, Gary Burton on vibes, Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – all coming together in a way that's extremely equally-weighted – with less of Brookmeyer as the leader, than as a warm friend, gathering together a few key players in the studio. Given that Getz worked with Brookmeyer back in the early 50s, and had Burton in his group at the time, the album's always a link between both sides of a decade in Stan's career – but with the presence of the modernists on the rhythm team, there's a sound here that's much more unique – one that has a place for Stan's wonderful tone, and Brookmeyer's airy phrasing – but which also drives along in a rhythmically pulsing mode that almost puts Burton's vibes at the top of the set on some numbers. There's a change in mood from tune to tune that gives the record a remarkable depth, but without sounding schizophrenic – and titles include "Bracket", " Wrinkle Time", "Jive Hoot", "Skylark", "Sometime Ago", and "Who Cares".

Stanley ClarkeModern Man ... LP
Columbia/Nemperor, 1978. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A bit more high concept than before for Stanley Clarke – almost a suite of sorts, but one that still has some great standout tunes in the mix! Although Clarke used to bring his higher concepts to bear in the space of a single song, this one's more of a full exploration of the character in the title – served up at the best moments with more soul than on previous albums from Stanley, some nicely tuneful tracks that almost get a bit funky at points. There's a bit of vocals on the record – courtesy of Dee Dee Bridgewater and others – and guests include Freddie Hubbard, Stan Getz, Harvey Mason, Tom Scott, and Airto. Titles include "More Hot Fun", "Slow Dance", "He Lives On", "Dayride", "Got To Find My Own Place", "Closing Statement", and "A Serious Occasion". LP, Vinyl record album

Xanadu, 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
Lots of heavy love here – a wonderful sense of rapport between the great tenorist Al Cohn and piano genius Jimmy Rowles! Both musicians were still recording heavily at the time of this album, but the record seems to capture them in a really special space that still stands strongly on its own – a mode that's much more relaxes than some of the Pablo Records sessions of the time, and which has Cohn in an especially striking mode – really hitting these openly-blown, often-angular lines that are dripping with soul – more heart and feeling than we might normally expect from him, matched equally by Jimmy Rowles' wonderful phrasing on piano – very much here at the top shelf level he delivered with Stan Getz on The Peacocks album. Titles include "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Bar Talk", "These Foolish Things", "Them There Eyes", and "Sweet & Lovely". LP, Vinyl record album

A brilliant mid 70s set headlined by pianist Al Haig & guitarist Jimmy Raney – essentially a reunion of bandmates from the early 50s Stan Getz Quintet – beautifully done and in a timelessly appealing mode! What's great about this is that doesn't feel in the least a hokey revisit the old days kinda thing, as if we should have expected something so crass from such wonderful players. They play some evergreen jazz standards some numbers that made waves in the 60s and later, the group includes Jamil Nasser on bass, Frank Gand on drums, plus guitar by Doug Raney on "You Came To Me From Out Of Nowhere". Other numbers including the Eddie Harris penned title track, Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance", "Round Midnight", "Invitation", and "Enigma". LP, Vinyl record album

Joe HendersonMirror Mirror ... LP
PA USA, 1980. Very Good- ... $11.99
A great lost session from tenorist Joe Henderson – recorded in 1980 for MPS Records, in a mellower, more easy-going style than some of his electric sides of the 70s! Joe's blowing in a really fluid style – almost like Stan Getz at times, but with a darker, edgier approach – and he's working here with a Getz-like group that includes Chick Corea on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. The set features some great originals by Corea and Carter, and in a way, we're tempted to make a comparison to Getz's Sweet Rain album – which shares a similar mellifluous modern quality to this one. Titles include "Joe's Bolero", "Candlelight", "Mirror Mirror", and "Keystone". LP, Vinyl record album

A better-than-usual set of third stream jazz by John Lewis – quite possibly because it was recorded a bit earlier than the rest! As with similar sessions on Columbia and Atlantic, this one has Lewis working with Gunther Schuller on tracks for a larger group that seek to bridge the gap between jazz and more "serious" music – almost an experiment in modern classical music, but a bit less constricted, and with plenty of room for the soloists to liven up the material. Players include JJ Johnson, Stan Getz, Tony Scott, and Lucky Thompson – who all get in some nice moments on the record – and titles include "Sun Dance", "Midsommer", "The Queen's Fancy", "Little David's Fugue", and "Django".

Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $8.99
A great lost groover on Verve – recorded during the heyday of the label's bossa years with Stan Getz! The record features Bob Brookmeyer fronting a large group arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin – soloing over the top, while Lalo comes up with sparkling bossa-tinged grooves that are in the spirit of his best soundtrack work of the mid 60s. Brookmeyer's playing is great too – very different than his sparer, modernist work on other records – and very much in the tradition of Brazilian trombone players who were a key force in bossa jazz at the time. The set includes one long original, "Samba Para Dos", plus shorter standards like "My Funny Valentine", "What Kind Of Fool Am I", and "I Get A Kick Out Of You" – all taken in great jazzy bossa versions!

Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $24.99
A rare gem from Zoot Sims – very different than any of his other albums! The session features Zoot blowing over large backings arranged and conducted by Gary McFarland, a bit in the older Verve "with strings" mode, but also sparkling with a lot of the newer elements that McFarland was bringing to his work at the time. The approach is both light and lush at the same time – and Zoot's got a tone and approach that we've never heard on any other record, making the whole album an incredible treat that we'd rank up there with Stan Getz's experiments of the same type from the 60s. Titles include "I Wish I Knew", "Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon", "Once We Loved", "Old Folks", "September Song", "Stella By Starlight", and "Once I Could Have Loved". LP, Vinyl record album

Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $21.99
A great recasting of the older four brothers jazz modes – that four horn chorus and solo format first created by Woody Herman with Stan Getz – given a much more modern twist here by a top-shelf lineup of players! The group has the American genius Lucky Thompson on soprano and tenor – joined by European heavyweights Barney Wilen on soprano and tenor, Bent Jaedig on tenor, and Helmut Brandt on baritone – all coming together in this way that really recognizes the changes in jazz since the format was first developed – with strong echoes of both west coast modern and soulful hardbop, depending on the tune. Rhythm is from a quartet that features Roland Kovac on piano, Larry Atwell on guitar, Jurgen Ehlers on bass, and Rudy Pronk on drums – and the music comes from a never-issued studio performance in 1960. Titles include "Iris", "Dusseldorf Sud", "Have A Light", "Why Weep", "This Here", "Jahrgang", and "The Mysterioso Mr X". LP, Vinyl record album

A charming little 70s session from Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski – one of the greatest tenor stars of the Polish jazz scene of the 60s and 70s! Jan's got a style that's a bit like Stan Getz during the same time – warmly carved notes that are perfectly at home in easygoing tunes that allow Wroblewski to stretch out in a mode that's exploratory, yet never too out, and relaxed, but never too sleepy. The titles on the set are all nicely extended, giving Jan plenty of room to roam around – and the backing is by a quartet with guitar, bass, and drums – hitting a groove that's partly modal, and partly electric – almost a bit like that on Getz's Captain Marvel album, but a bit less freewheeling. Titles include "Flyin Lady", "Bossa Nostra", "Pastuszek Stomp", and "Why The Monkey". LP, Vinyl record album

This is one of the best ones that Charlie cut on his own – and it features tight guitar work in a mode that's similar to that used by Baden Powell on his early bossa recordings, augmented by trio rhythms – plus some occasional larger backings by Walter Raim, and some extended group settings that feature Charlie Hampton on alto, Earl Swope on trombone, and Willie Rodriguez on percussion.

Originally issued separately, but pretty much under the same title, the first LP brings together the hottest jazz stars of the day, and on this volume it includes Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, JJ Johnson, Coleman Hawkins and Roy Eldridge. There's a great jamming take on "Bernie's Tune" and a sidelong riffing version of "All The Things You Are", plus "Swedish Jam". The second album was issued ostensibly as a Dizzy Gillespie performance, but with like the first features some very strong guest stars! The core of the group is Diz's great one from the early 60s – with Lalo Schifrin on piano and Leo Wright on alto and flute, and they're joined by Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, and Candido for this tasty set of three long tracks: "Kush", "The Mooch" and "Wheatleigh Hall". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Wlodzimierz NahornyJej Portret ... LP
Polskie Nagrania (Poland), 1970. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic set from Polish jazz musician Wlodzimierz Nahorny – a player with a name that's certainly a mouthful, but one with talents who will also leave you breathless! Nahorny shines here on a number of different instruments – with solos on alto sax, flute, and piano – plus some cool harpsichord on one track too – all set to the sophisticated backings of Jan Ptaszyn Wroblewski, who was easily one of Poland's hipper arrangers of the time! The album's got a mix of jazz and orchestration's that's as hip as some of the late 60s CTI sessions – particularly during their years with A&M Records – or with a vibe that's a bit like some of the later Stan Getz projects on Verve, with all the cool, sophisticated touches that would imply! Tracks are all Polish numbers, done instrumentally – which makes for an especially fresh feel to the set – and titles include "Obok Nas", "Wlasnie Tego Dnia", "Jej Portret", "Taki Dzien", and "Mowity Mu". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some light wear.)
