✨✧ Stan GetzBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect accompanist for Getz on the session – working with just the right amount of space to let Stan stand out from the pack, and really creating a great blend of Brazilian rhythms and some of the modder 60s styles at Verve. Gary contributed a number of originals to the session too – and titles include "Bim Bom", "Manlancolico", "Balanco No Samba", "Noite Triste", "Chega De Saudade", and "Manha De Carnival".

Stan GetzMaster ... LP
Columbia, 1975. Very Good ... $6.99
A gem of a session from Stan Getz – recorded in 1975, but unissued until the mid 80s! The set was probably lost amidst the flurry of more dramatic jazz recorded by CBS at the time – as it's a relatively understated session that has Stan blowing with acoustic accompaniment from Albert Dailey on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – a great return to basics amidst some of Stan's more concept-oriented sessions for the label at the time. Don't let that understated quality stop you, though, because the album's one of Stan's most far-reaching – with very long tracks that feature the kind of freer blowing that Getz brought to classics like Sweet Rain, Captain Marvel, and Dynasty – and if you dig any of those, you'll find a very similar energy here! Titles include "Invitation", "Summer Night", and "Raven's Wood". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzStan Getz At The Shrine (Number 1) ... LP
Columbia (UK), Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A classic west coast recording by Stan – recorded at the Shrine Theater in LA, with a group that includes Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, John Williams on piano, Art Madigan on drums, and Bill Anthony on bass. The tracks are long with that mellifluous Getz swing to them – not really modern, but with enough edges to keep things interesting. Titles include "Flamingo", "Lover Man", "Pernod", "Tasty Pudding", and "I'll Remember April". David Stone Martin cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzSweet Rain ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $11.99
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!

Johnny Smith with Stan GetzMoonlight In Vermont ... LP
Roost, 1952/1953. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith group, done at a time when the lineup included Stan Getz! The tunes on the set feature Johnny's mellow electric guitar setting the pace, alongside wonderfully-blown early solos from Stan, plus some other tenor work from Zoot Sims and Paul Quinichette, who also sit in the tenor chair on a few of these recordings. The tunes are mostly standards, but done in a great style that's not exactly cool jazz, but which has a groundbreakingly easy groove that's simply sublime! Titles include "Yesterdays", "Vilia", "Ghost Of A Chance", "Jaguar", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Tabu", and "Where Or When". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzMore West Coast Jazz With Stan Getz ... LP
Verve, 1953. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
The title's a bit misleading, but the record's a great one! Oddly, the album's not a follow up to the West Coast Jazz album by Stan Getz – firstly, because it wasn't actually done on the west coast, and secondly, because this one was actually recorded two years before! But that doesn't stop the set from being great – and we can certainly forgive Verve's free use of west coast in the title as more of a stylistic definition than anything else. But even with that name in place, there's almost more of a Boston modern feel going on – one that's open, fluid, and which features the tenor of Getz alongside some tremendous trombone work from a young Bob Brookmeyer. Rhythm is by the trio of John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on drums, and Teddy Kotick on bass – but at moments, the horns almost hang together alone, especially on the longer, mellower tracks! Titles include "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", "Willow Weep For Me", "Crazy Rhythm", "Tangerine", and "The Nearness Of You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto ... LP
Verve, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with guitarist Joao Gilberto really pushed the format over the top – thanks in part to the vocals of Gilberto's lovely wife Astrud, who'd never sung in the studio before this famous recording! The record created a sound that was copied endlessly, and which catapulted Astrud to unbelievable fame worldwide – even though she was only included in the session at the last minute, because Joao couldn't sing in English – and the mix of Stan's tenor and Joao's guitar is wonderful – and backed throughout by this light, lilting bossa nova rhythms. Titles include the classic recording of "Girl From Ipanema", plus loads of other bossa classics like "Desafinado", "Cocovado", "O Grande Amor", and "Vivo Sonhando". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzCaptain Marvel ... LP
Columbia, 1972. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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 GetzImported From Europe ... LP
Verve, 1958. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Although pressed up by Verve, the music is definitely Imported From Europe – as Stan Getz plays here with a host of great Swedish players – on a date that makes for a real standout in his 50s catalog! Stan was living in Sweden at the time of the album – bringing a big influence to the scene there, and furthering the already modernist tones that some of the nation's best players were creating in the postwar years. There's a brilliant blend of iciness and warmth going on here – and players include Bengt Hallberg on piano, Ake Persson on trombone, Erik Nordstrom on tenor, and Lars Gullin on baritone – plus American Benny Bailey on trumpet, who was also making a home for himself over there at the time! Tracks are long, sometimes with a lively jam session-ish feel – and titles include "Bengt's Blues", "Topsy", "Speak Low", and "Stockholm Street". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A lovely later recording from Stan Getz – very spare and spacious, and recorded with a casual approach that's quite striking, and really fresh! The album features Stan playing alongside pianist Albert Dailey – with no other rhythm accompaniment, just piano and tenor sax. The tunes are mostly familiar numbers, played in a relaxed, improvised mode that makes the whole thing feel like you're getting a lucky glimpse of Stan and Albert playing together in an after hours session or rehearsal. There's a bit of roughness in the recording, but given the depth of soul and color from both players, that quality also emerges as an honest humanity that only serves to make the recording more compelling! Titles include "Tune Up", "A Child Is Born", "Confirmation", "Round Midnight", and "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most". LP, Vinyl record album

Excellent 60s work by Stan Getz – tunes recorded in 1964, but not issued at the time, thanks to a flurry of bossa nova craziness! The pairing of Getz and Bill Evans is a wonderful one here – as both players are at their warmest, and working with a wonderful sense of tone throughout – Stan, slightly lyrical at times – and Bill, with some slight brooding undercurrents that really add some depth to the set. The rest of the group features either Ron Carter or Richard Davis on bass, plus Elvin Jones on drums – and titles include "Funkallero", "Melinda", "Grandfather's Waltz", "My Heart Stood Still", and "Night & Day".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto '76 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Resonance, 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Genius material from the team of tenorist Stan Getz and Brazilian bossa legend Joao Gilberto – reunited here in a brief mid 70s period, after their famous Verve recordings of the early 60s – and in a way that shows all the changes both artists had gone through over the years! Stan and Joao would go onto produce the sublime Best Of Two Worlds studio record during this same stretch – but this never-issued live date is arguably even deeper and darker than that record – as Stan blows with the stronger current of melancholy he seemed to unlock in period of his Sweet Rain record and onward – and Joao himself does all the singing here, without help from any female vocalist – with that bluer, more personal vibe he hit on his incredible record from 1973. The maturity and emotion of both musicians comes through right away – and support is from the trio of Joanne Brackeen on piano, Clint Houston on bass, and Billy Hart on drums – all wonderful musicians who also know just the right moment to step back and let the two giants dominate when needed. Titles include "Eu Vim Da Bahia", "E Preciso Perdoar", "Doralice", "Morena Boca De Ouro", "Joao Marcelo", "Aguas De Marco", "Samba De Minha Terra", and "Retrato Em Branco E Preto".

A great little set that shouldn't work as well as it does! Mulligan's baritone work is cut nicely by Getz's wispy alto – making for a combination of horns that yeilds some wonderful moments that opens both players up more than usual for the time.

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

Art PepperTrip ... LP
Contemporary, 1976. Very Good+ ... $8.99
The "trip" here is a mellow one – not the soaring, spacey style you might expect in a long line of drug-reference titles for Art Pepper albums – but that difference is a-ok with us, because Art's really hitting some great new territory here, thanks to a hip trio that includes George Cables on piano! Tracks are long and stretched out – but in a way that's gently exploratory, and focused on a really warm sense of tone – in a mode that we might liken slightly to Stan Getz at his best moments from the same period, particularly the groove he developed in his post-Sweet Rain years. Other members of the quartet include David Williams on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – and tracks include "The Trip", "Sweet Love Of Mine", "A Song For Richard", "Red Car", and "The Summer Knows".

Zoot SimsWaiting Game ... LP
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

A seminal set in the rebirth of straight jazz in the early 80s – a wonderful record with a much warmer, more traditional feel than you'd expect from some of the players involved! Bassist Stanley Clarke and pianist Chick Corea really return to their roots here – Stanley with some of the bold acoustic tones of his earliest soul jazz years, Chick with those modern-yet-soulful piano lines he first brought to magical recordings of the 60s – including the Sweet Rain session with Stan Getz. Freddie Hubbard's also in the group – blowing wonderfully with that reborn sound of his early 80s years, still some of the best work he ever did – and the group also features Joe Henderson on tenor, always a treat, and Lenny White on drums, really keeping things focused. The set's a gem through and through – and titles include "L's Bop", "Happy Times", "Remember", "Guernica", "October Ballade", and "Why Wait". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneDusseldorf – March 28, 1960 (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Doxy, 1960. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unusual performance from the mighty John Coltrane – recorded in Germany in 1960, with an amazing group that features Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – stepping out from Miles Davis to give Trane a very special groove! These guys give the record a very different swing than some of Trane's other albums of the period – and Kelly punctuates some moments with a soulful style on piano, while Chambers bows his bass a fair bit, which creates these shaded, moody tones. Coltrane himself is wonderful – that clear-blown, incredible sound of his Atlantic years – maybe the best-recorded instrument in the setting, with with beautiful solos that are worth the price of admission alone. Stan Getz makes appearance at one point, as does Oscar Peterson – although the notes aren't that clear – but just concentrate on Coltrane, as that's all you'll need! Titles include "On Green Dolphin Street", "Walkin", "Rifftide", and a medley of "Yesterdays/Autumn Leaves/What's New". LP, Vinyl record album

The record features a set of tracks written and/or arranged by Brookmeyer, with help from contemporaries like Eddie Sauter, Ralph Burns, and Gary McFarland – all of whom were doing similar work for Verve at the time. Players are strong all around – and include Hank Jones, Eddie Costa, Gene Quill, Phil Woods, Nick Travis, Al Cohn, and Phil Bodner – and titles include "Some Of My Best Friends", "Gloomy Sunday", "Where Oh Where", "Days Gone By Oh My", and "Ho Hum".

Xanadu, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Verve, Early 60s. Used Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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!

✨✧ Lucky Thompson & Barney WilenFour Brothers ... LP
Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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
