Stan GetzLong Island Sound ... LP
Prestige/New Jazz, 1949/1950. Good+ ... $4.99
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 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 Getz & Albert DaileyPoetry ... LP
Elektra, 1984. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

✨✧ Stan Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto ... LP
Verve, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... On May 13, 2016
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 Getz & Joao GilbertoGetz/Gilberto '76 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Resonance, 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
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".

✨✧ 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".

Roost, 1952/1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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

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 GetzVoyage ... LP
Blackhawk, 1986. Used ... Out Of Stock
A standout session from Stan Getz – one of the real gems of his later years, and a masterpiece of well-blown and confident tones! Getz here has a near-perfect form – a poise and balance that comes from decades of woodshedding on tenor sax, but which is still deeply personal, and one of the most honest sounds we can think of on his instrument. At a time when other players were often bumping into other too-contemporary modes, Stan lays back and blows in a warm acoustic setting – with Kenny Barron on piano, George Mraz on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums – plus some additional percussion from Babatunde Lea, who works here in a relatively gentle manner. As with most of the Getz/Barron work of the later years, the balance here is beautiful – never too far-out or indulgent, despite the length of some of the tracks – and almost in that Sweet Rain style of playing that Stan first opened up into at the end of the 60s. Titles include "I Wanted To Say", "Yesterdays", "Dreams", "Falling In Love", and "Voyage". LP, Vinyl record album

Norgran/Verve, Early 50s. Used 2LP Box ... Out Of Stock
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".

An overlooked treat recorded at a time when Verve was briefly exploring the jazz orchestra format in the early 60s – through recordings by Stan Getz, Jimmy Guiffre, and here, Bob Brookmeyer. 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".

✨✧ Stanley Clarke & Chick CoreaGriffith Park Collection ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $4.99
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

Xanadu, 1978. Near Mint- ... $6.99
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

✨✧ John ColtraneDusseldorf – March 28, 1960 (180 gram clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Doxy, 1960. New Copy ... $19.99
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

Mulligan always sounds great next to a tenor – especially in the Verve series that has him teamed up with players like Johnny Hodges, Paul Desmond, or Stan Getz. 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

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".

Lalo Schifrin & Bob BrookmeyerSamba Para Dos ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
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!

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

Storyville/Trio (Japan), 1951/1953. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Rare live material from Billie Holiday – recorded at the Storyville club in Boston, and featuring some especially hip small combo backing! A good portion of the work appears to have been broadcast on radio – which means that the sound quality is professional, and done for a bigger audience – at a level that easily matches Holiday albums for bigger labels at the time. One set of tracks from October of 1951 feature Stan Getz on tenor and Buster Harding on piano – and another batch from a week later features Harding's trio, without Getz. The last set of tracks is from 1953, with Carl Drinkard leading a trio with Jimmy Woode on bass – and the album features a total of 13 tracks that include "You Go To My Head", "Willow Weep For Me", "I Cover The Waterfront", "He's Funny That Way", "Billie's Blues", "Miss Brown To You", and "Them There Eyes".

The record features soulful tenor star Ike Quebec blowing in front of Brazilian-styled rhythms laid out by a combo that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, and a duo of Latin percussionists! Willie Bobo plays drums on the session, and the cuts have a short groovy feel, with a sax-heavy lead, in a similar style to Stan Getz's bossa work on Verve – but much more soulful overall, and with a nicely rougher feel on the rhythms. Really great stuff, and with titles that include "Loie", "Goin Home", "Favela", "Blue Samba", and "Shu Shu". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ 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
Also available Four Brothers ... CD 18.99
