✨✧ Stan GetzPrezervation ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
The title's not a typo, but a strong reference to the influence of Lester Young on the tenor sound of Stan Getz – especially in these early recordings! The material is right from the end of the 40s – and shows a young Stan really coming into his own on Prestige Records – blowing with a crisply soulful tone that emulates his idol, but already finding fluid spaces that take Getz very much into his own territory too! Most recordings were issued in formats that pre-date the LP at Prestige – which makes this full collection an essential document of the time – and players include Al Haig on piano, Kai Winding on trombone, Tommy Potter on bass, Jimmy Raney on guitar, and Roy Haynes on drums. Titles include "Pinch Bottle", "Prezervation", "Liza", "Intoit", "Goodnight My Lvoe", "Short P Not LP", "Be Still TV", and "Opus Caprice". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzSplit Kick (10 inch LP) ... LP
Roost, Early 50s. Very Good ... $79.99
One of the greatest early 10" albums by Stan Getz – graced by a famous cover that has Stan drinking a glass of milk – which was a real in-joke if you knew his habits at the time! Horace Silver is on piano, but a bit more restrained than on his Blue Note sides – letting Stan's tone dominate nicely in a wonderful mode that's extremely fluid, even for this early point in his career. Titles include "Split Kick", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "The Best Thing For You", "You Go To My Head", "Fools Rush In", "On The Alamo", "'S Wonderful", and "Out Of Nowhere". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzStan Getz At Large ... LP
Verve, 1960. Fair 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 Quintet – Jazz At Storyville Vol 3 (10 inch LP) ... LP
Roost, Early 50s. Very Good ... $43.99
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
(Vinyl is clean, but has a click on two tracks. Cover has a bit of splitting in one corner seam, but is still nice overall.)

✨✧ Stan Getz & Astrud GilbertoGetz Au Go Go ... LP
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible lineup that made for some wonderfully moody sounds! The vibes/tenor approach was a high point in Getz's career – especially as the young Burton could create these beautiful washes of sound that were a perfect counterpoint to Getz's breathy playing. And although Astrud Gilberto is thrown into the mix here to give the album a bit of bossa appeal – vocals on 6 titles that include "Corovado", "Eu E Voce", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "One Note Samba", "Only Trust Your Heart", and "The Telephone Song" – there's also 4 more tracks that are all instrumental, and which show the Getz/Burton union in all of its glory! These tracks include "6 Nix Pix Flix", "The Singing Song", "Here's That Rainy Day", and "Summertime". And for reference, the rest of the group includes Gene Cherico on bass and Joe Hunt on drums – but on 3 tracks, Chuck Israels plays bass instead of Cherico, and on a few others, Helcio Milito plays drums instead of Hunt, and Kenny Burrell joins in on guitar.

Stan Getz/Eddie SauterMickey One – Original Soundtrack ... LP
MGM, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
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

Roost, Early 50s. Very Good- ... $33.99
A beautiful document of some of the most laidback jazz ever recorded – the sublime 50s recordings of the Johnny Smith quintet, 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. 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 "Tenderly", "Vilia", "A Ghost Of A Chance", "Jaguar", "Moonlight In Vermont", "Tabu", and "Where Or When". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzBig Band Bossa Nova ... LP
Verve, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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 GetzFocus ... LP
Verve, 1961. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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 Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto #2 ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
A very different record than the first collaboration between Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto – but that's also one of the things that makes it great! The album's more of a split LP than a shared one – as side one features a live performance from the great mid 60s Stan Getz quartet that featured Gary Burton on vibes – a wonderfully cool combo that was very under-documented on record, and which makes a key appearance here. The combination of Burton's vibes and Stan's tenor is pure genius – a sound that's got all the subtle hues and cool colors of the Getz bossa recordings, but which is quite different overall. Stan's tone is amazing on these tunes – and titles include "Here's That Rainy Day", "Tonight I Shall Sleep With A Smile On My Face", "Grandfather's Waltz", and "Stan's Blues". Side two features Joao Gilberto without Stan – playing in a very groovy trio that's more straight bossa than most of his other US recordings – cool small combo grooving that's totally great! The lineup features Gilberto on guitar and vocals, Keeter Betts on bass, and Helcio Milito on drums – all working in a sweetly grooving mode on titles that include "Samba De Minha Terra", "Meditation", "Bim Bom", "Rosa Moreno", and "O Pato".

Verve, 1957. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little follow-up to the classic West Coast Jazz album recorded by Stan Getz – and like that one, a set to feature some great rhythm accompaniment from the trio of Lou Levy on piano, Stan Levey on drums, and Leroy Vinnegar on bass! The tracks are nice and open – with plenty of room for Stan to roam around – and although you might expect a tightly-arranged kind of sound from the west coast setting, the album's actually surprisingly more relaxed – a fair bit like some of the more open-ended jazz that Shelly Manne started to record on his own at the start of the 60s. Titles include "Where Or When", "Smiles", "This Can't Be Love", and "Woody 'n You". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stan GetzMore West Coast Jazz With Stan Getz ... LP
Verve, 1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
(Black label Norgran pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove! Vinyl and cover are very nice – save for a split on the top cover seam.)

Verve, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
A very groovy batch of tracks that's got a sweet and easy feel – one that features Stan blowing to arrangements by the great Johnny Pate, recorded at a time when both of them were at the height of their powers! Although Pate's style is usually a bit funky, on this set, he's amazingly laidback – setting Stan up in a wash of strings and soul that creates space for some wonderfully breathy solos. The tunes are a mix of late 60s numbers – some of them pop, but not in a bad way – as Stan and Johnny really work some incredible sounds with titles that include "Mandy Is Two", "Didn't We", "The Shining Sea", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes".

Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank (10 inch LP) ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Very Good ... $29.99
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto.

Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $2.99
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.

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

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

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.

Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
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!

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

Sonorama (Germany), 1960. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $28.99
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 great chapter in 60s bossa jazz – Zoot Sims "answer" to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – recorded in a similar jazz-meets-bossa style, with some great guitar work by Jim Hall! Zoot's solos are a bit tighter and not as laidback as Stan's – giving a more jazz-based sound to the work that makes for a nice change – and most of the tunes feature larger backings from Manny Albam and Al Cohn – never too over-arranged, but with enough of a full swinging sound to set things right. Hall's guitar works surprisingly well in the setting – and titles include "Barquinho De Papel", "Ciume", "Recado Bossa Nova (parts 1 & 2)", and "Cano Canoe". LP, Vinyl record album

Chick's coming off of years of work in Latin bands, and in smaller soul jazz combos, and his writing here is a mix of the freer style that would later become too free, with the rootsier elements of his background. The players on the record include Woody Shaw on trumpet, Joe Farrell on tenor and flute, Steve Swallow on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and all tracks are long, with a sweeping, searching, soulful sound. Titles include a beautiful rendition of Chick's "Litha", which he also recorded with Stan Getz on Sweet Rain, plus two other nice originals – "Tones For Joan's Bones" and "Straight Up And Down". This set also includes two numbers left off the original release, "Inner Space" and "Guijira" – recorded at the same time, and a wonderful expansion of the already-great set. Added to the record are two more Chick-centered tracks from the Hubert Laws album Laws' Cause – "Windows" and "Trio For Flute, Bassoon & Piano" – arranged by Corea, and featuring him on piano and Hubert Laws on flute. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Coleman HawkinsDesafinado ... LP
Impulse, 1964. Used Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later work. The groove's similar to a Stan Getz bossa outing, with light acoustic guitar backing him up, but Hawkins' playing is very deep and soulful, and the groove gets very low. With the great cuts "Samba Para Bean" and "Stumpy Bossa Nova". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jazz At The PhilharmonicJazz At The Philharmonic In Europe (tan cover) ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One volume of a four volume set, though Verve didn't number them. Recorded in concert one night in Denmark, this set is a Norm Granz production that transplants the JATP crew to Europe. While some of the other volumes feature larger groups blowin' and riffing on standards, this one has a small more intimate group, featuring Stan Getz & JJ Johnson in front of a nice tight rhythm section of Victor Feldman, Sam Jones & Louis Hayes. The set's still made up of standards, but there's a few nice takes here, including "I Waited For You", "Yesterdays" and a nice version of "Bop N Boogie" featuring Dizzy Gillespie. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Laurindo AlmeidaLaurindo Almeida Quartet Featuring Bud Shank ... LP
Pacific Jazz, 1955. Used ... Out Of Stock
A landmark set of recordings cut for the Pacific Jazz label in the early 50s, and supposedly a major influence on the early bossa artists in Brazil! The tracks were cut by a quartet led by LA altoist Bud Shank, and featuring Brazilian guitarist Laurindo Almeida, who was living in LA at the time. The mix of alto and guitar, in a jazzy vien, but with Latiny rhythms, is very similar to the early bossa jazz recordings – and even more so to the later American ones by Stan Getz and Charlie Byrd. Supposedly, original 10" LPs of the material made their way to Brazil, and later influenced Jobim and Gilberto. Although we can't confirm that rumor entirely, you'll sure hear a similarity, and even if you don't, the stuff's still pretty darn great. Titles include "Terra Seca", "Amor Flamenco", "Atabaque", "Nono", "Noctambulism", "Tocata", and "Carinoso". Full LP that reissues the original 10" sets. LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label Pacific Jazz pressing in a red cover – with deep groove! Vinyl and cover are nice – both heavy and in good shape – just a bit of clear tape in the corner of the cover, but intact and nice overall.)

✨✧ Bob Brookmeyer & Zoot SimsToday's Jazz (aka Whooeeee) ... LP
Storyville/Jazztone, Mid 50s. Used ... Out Of Stock
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
(Deep groove pressing.)
