Stan GetzCanadian Concert Of Stan Getz ... LP
Can Am, 1965. Very Good ... $11.99
Not only great material, but a much-needed addition to the all-too-short list of recordings that pair Stan's tenor with the vibes of a young Gary Burton! Titles include "Waltz For A Lovely Wife", "My Romance", "Morning Of The Carnival", and "A Singing Song". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzInterpretations By The Stan Getz Quintet ... LP
Norgran, Early 50s. Good+ ... $19.99
Sublime early work from Stan – a lyrical genius even at this early point in his career! The album features a group that includes a very young Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, plus rhythm by Teddy Kotick, John Williams, and Frank Isola. Tracks are longish and easily swinging – and Getz's tone, as always, makes the whole thing come together like magic! Titles include "Pot Luck", "Love & the Weather", "Spring Is Here", and "Crazy Rhythm". LP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy yellow label Norgran pressing with a trumpeter logo & deep groove. Cover has moderate wear with split top & bottom seams.)

Stan GetzInterpretations By The Stan Getz Quintet #3 ... LP
Verve, 1953. Very Good+ ... $89.99
Sublime early work from Stan Getz – a lyrical genius even at this early point in his career! There's a subtle brilliance here that's undeniable – a tenor sound that draws from Lester Young and Ben Webster, but which pushes into fresh new territory for the 50s – lean, but still very soulful at the core – a blend that none of Stan's contemporaries could ever match this well! The album features a group that includes a very young Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, plus rhythm by Teddy Kotick, John Williams, and Frank Isola. Tracks are longish and easily swinging – and Getz's tone, as always, makes the whole thing come together like magic! Titles include "Oh Jane Snavely", "The Varsity Drag", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I'll Remember April". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing, with a trumpeter logo & deep groove. A great copy!)

✨✧ Stan GetzSoft Swing ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The swing is soft by the sound is never sleepy – thanks to some always-great tenor work from Stan Getz! The album definitely moves in a slightly mellow mode – as implied by the title – but the groove is still plenty darn soulful! Iif anything the album offers almost a bit more space than usual for Stan to do his thing in the lead – carving out beautiful tenor lines that almost hang by themselves in space at varying points – but which also receive some gentle rhythmic support from the trio of Mose Allison on piano, Jerry Segal on drums, and Addison Farmer on bass. Titles include "Down Beat", "Pocono Mac", "All The Things You Are", "Bye Bye Blues", and "To The Ends Of The Earth". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzStan Getz At The Shrine (Number 1) ... LP
Columbia (UK), Early 50s. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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
(UK pressing. Cover has some wear and small stains.)

Stan Getz & JJ JohnsonStan Getz & JJ Johnson At The Opera House ... LP
Verve, 1957. Very Good ... $13.99
A strange pairing – but that's sometimes what makes these Verve "pro meets pro" sets from the 50s so great. Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode of the recording. Titles include "Billie's Bounce", "My Funny Valentine", "Crazy Rhythm", and "Blues In The Closet". LP, Vinyl record album
(Verve Inc pressing, with deep groove. Cover has splitting on the spine & seams.)

Gerry Mulligan & Stan GetzGerry Mulligan Meets Stan Getz (second cover) ... LP
Verve, 1958. Very Good+ ... $9.99
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. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling" – and the rhythm section features Lou Levy, Stan Levey, and Ray Brown. LP, Vinyl record album
(MGM pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

✨✧ Stan GetzFocus ... LP
Verve, 1961. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Oft-overlooked album that's actually one of Getz's most far-reaching of the 60s! Recorded in the year before he got caught up in his bossa pop frenzy, the record shows Getz as a darkly toned modernist, weaving out complex solos over the album's extended suite "Focus", written and arranged by the great Eddie Sauter, with whom Stan worked on the Mickey One soundtrack. The album's a surprisingly refreshing one, and shows yet another complex side of Getz's endlessly compelling career. Titles include "Pan", "Her", "Night Rider", and "Once Upon A Time".

✨✧ Stan GetzStan Getz & The Oscar Peterson Trio ... LP
Verve, Late 50s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s! Stan's tone fits perfectly with the group here – and his playing next to the guitar of Herb Ellis recalls many of the fine strengths of the early 50s Getz sides with Jimmy Raney – although somehow coming across with even more depth and imagination here – probably a result of the more sophisticated approach to productions handled by Verve! Peterson's no slouch, either – but Stan's the man who really makes the session sparkle – as you'll hear on tunes that include "Tour's End", "Bronx Blues", "I Was Doing All Right", and "I'm Glad There's You".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Charlie ByrdJazz Samba ... LP
Verve, 1962. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto ... LP
Verve, 1963. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

Ruby Braff, George Wein/Bob Brookmeyer & Al CohnJazz At Storyville 1 (Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival/Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn) ... LP
Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1954. Near Mint- ... $24.99
A Japanese-only album – one that brings together two rare 10" jazz sessions for the Storyville label in Boston! First up is Jazz At The Boston Arts Festival – a great set of trad jazz grooves from the Boston scene of the 50s – recorded with an easygoing groove that's totally great, and put together by George Wein in the same spirit as some of his better-known live events of the time! Players include Ruby Braff on trumpet, Vic Dickenson and Dick Lefave on trombones, Al Drootin on clarinet, Sam Margolis on tenor, Buzzy Drootin on drums, and Wein himself on piano – and the tunes are open-ended swing-based numbers, with titles that include "High Society", "You Took Advantage Of Me", "Swinging The Blues", "At The Jazz Band Ball", and "After You've Gone". The second half of the album is even better – the great 10" session Bob Brookmeyer Featuring Al Cohn – a great early session from trombonist Bob Brookmeyer – recorded with a light easy swing that's similar to his mid 50s work with Stan Getz, and in a format that's possibly more relaxed overall! This time around, Bob's working with Al Cohn on tenor – a nice choice for the date, and a player who gives the record a different feel than the more famous Getz/Brookmeyer combination of the time. The rest of the group includes John Williams on piano, Frank Isola on bass, and Bill Anthony on drums – and there's some great interplay between Cohn's tenor and Bob's trombone – the latter of which has that trademark compressed sound throughout! Titles include "Jive At Five", "In The Mode", "Skylark", and "Open Country". LP, Vinyl record album

A wonderful small combo set from this unusual team – put together in ways that are somewhere between the Brookmeyer/Stan Getz pairings of the early 50s, and Zoot's work for the Dawn label! The group also features Hank Jones on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Jo Jones on drums – and titles include "The King", "Whoo-eeee", "Morning Fun", "Box Cars", and "Snake Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Charlie ByrdBossa Nova Pelos Passaros ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good ... $2.99
Guitarist Charlie Byrd was one of the first American players to record bossa nova tunes – but although his work with Stan Getz has always been well-documented, some of the titles under his own name can be quite hard to come by. 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. Tracks include "Ho Ba La La", "Samba Triste", "Yvone", "O Barquinho", "Un Abraco Do Bonfa", and "O Passaro". LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie ByrdOnce More – Charlie Byrd's Bossa Nova ... LP
Riverside, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A lovely little record from the man who helped Stan Getz find his bossa – and a set that's done with just a bit more backing than usual from Byrd for the time! The album makes nice use of additional percussion, vibes, cello, and a bit of flugelhorn to back up Byrd's work on acoustic guitar – never in a way that dominates too strongly, with just enough added sound to color in the grooves with a slightly deeper tone. Titles include "Presente De Natal", "Three Note Samba", "Limehouse Blues", "Cancao De Nimar Para Carol", "Chega De Saudade", and "Anna". LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label Bill Grauer pressing with microphone logo & deep groove. Cover has some light wear.)

CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 1 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $1.99
A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.

CBS Jazz All StarsMontreux Summit Vol 2 ... LP
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
A wonderful follow-up to the first Montreux Summit album – and like that classic, a groundbreaking assemblage of some of the best jazz musicians of the 70s! The format here is slightly different – with more of a focus on smaller groupings of musicians, but still with a really fresh ear for unusual combinations – especially with players you're not always likely to hear together – all stretching out on some sweet longer tracks. Tunes include a version of "Moontrane" with Woody Shaw on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, and George Duke on Fender Rhodes; "Two Part Invention" with Bob James on piano and Hubert Laws on flute; "Kanon For Flutes", with work by Bob Militello and Thijs Van Leer on flutes, alongside Bob James on Fender Rhodes, Eric Gale on guitar, and Peter Erskine on drums; "Red Top" with Dexter Gordon and Stan Getz on tenor, and Maynard Ferguson and Woody Shaw on trumpet; "Rites Of Darkness" with George Duke on Fender Rhodes, Bob James on keyboards, and Steve Kahn on guitar; "Be Cool" with James on Fender Rhodes, Duke on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey and Hubert Laws on flute, and Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitar; and a sweet take on James' "Night Crawler" – with Stan Getz on tenor, Bobbi Humphrey and Hubert Laws on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Bob James himself on Fender Rhodes!

A mixture of Verve regulars and early third streamers join together in this one-off session designed as a focus on the writing talents of John Lewis. Most of the material takes off from Lewis' work with the MJQ, and the band includes two of his bandmates from that group, Connie Kay & Percy Heath – as well as soloists Stan Getz, JJ Johnson, Aaron Sachs, and Lucky Thompson. Titles include "Little David's Fugue", "Sun Dance", "Django", and "Midsommer". In a great David Stone Martin cover, too! LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry MulliganFeelin' Good ... LP
Limelight, 1965. Very Good ... $6.99
A surprisingly groovy set of mid 60s tunes by Gerry – recorded in LA with backing by a small group that includes the great Hal Blaine on drums and Pete Jolly on piano, plus a string section conducted by Harry Bluestone. Mulligan's main role is to lay down some moody solos – in a manner similar to some of the Stan Getz albums from the same time – and he performs this job impeccably, with nicely placed baritone work that's some of his best ballad playing from the time. The record features a great version of "Feelin' Good", plus the cuts "I'll Walk Alone", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "PS I Love You", and "The Lonely Night", a great moody track.

This release, cut with Ben Webster upfront, is one of the best of that series – and features the pair blowing easily and soulfully on some long tracks with rhythm by Jimmy Rowles, Leroy Vinnegar, and Mel Lewis. Titles include "Go Home", "The Cat Walk", "Sunday", "Who's Got Rhythm", and "Tell Me When". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ John ColtraneDusseldorf – March 28, 1960 (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Doxy, 1960. New Copy ... 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
