✨✧ Ella FitzgeraldElla In Berlin – Mack The Knife ... LP
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook albums from the same time – with light and jazzy backing by a group that includes Jim Hall, Paul Smith, Wilfred Middlebrooks, and Gus Johnson. Titles include "Mack The Knife", "How High The Moon", "Too Darn Hot", "Gone With The Wind", "Misty", and "Summertime". LP, Vinyl record album

Stan GetzCool Velvet – Stan Getz & Strings ... LP
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+ ... $3.99
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 GetzDynasty ... CD
Verve, 1971. Used 2CD ... $15.99
A great lost album from Stan Getz! The record features Stan in a totally new setting, playing with some relatively unfamiliar French talents – Eddie Louiss on organ, Rene Thomas on guitar, and Bernard Lubat on drums. Louiss is incredible, and has a free spacey sound that recalls Larry Young – which works perfectly with Getz's post-Coltrane explorations here. The whole album's a triumph, and a tribute to Stan's never-ending quest for new sounds, despite the fact that labels always wanted him to reproduce his bigger hits. Titles include "Our Kind Of Sabi", "Song For Martine", "Invitation", and "Dum Dum". All tracks are long, and the album's a delightful meeting of European jazz and masterful solo talents! CD

Stan GetzFocus ... CD
Verve, 1961. Used ... $4.99
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 "I'm Late, I'm Late", "I Remember When", "Pan", "Her", "Night Rider", and "Once Upon A Time", plus bonus single versions of "I'm Late, I'm Late" and "I Remember When"! CD

Stan GetzMore West Coast Jazz With Stan Getz ... LP
Verve, 1953. Very Good+ ... $23.99
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.)

Stan GetzSerenity ... CD
Verve, 1987. Used ... $5.99
One of Stan's last truly great albums – a wonderful concert recorded in Copenhagen in 1987, with his late quartet that featured Kenny Barron on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Victor Lewis on drums. The soulful searching quality of the players is right in line with Stan's unfettered tone at the time – a honing down of his post-Coltrane wail, into more of lyrical one, with slight modal touches. All tracks are very long – and titles include "Voyage", "I Remember You", "I Love You", and "On Green Dolphin Street". CD

Stan GetzStan Getz At The Shrine ... LP
Norgran/Verve, Early 50s. Very Good 2LP Box ... $59.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing, with trumpeter logo and deep groove – including the photobook! Box has wear, and splitting, with some sides torn.)

Stan GetzStan Getz Plays ... CD
Verve, Early 50s. Used ... $3.99
Pure genius from Stan Getz – a set that's got an understated brilliance from the cover and title right down to the music in the grooves – and maybe one of the best-ever pairings of the tenor of Getz with the guitar of Jimmy Raney! The pair work here in a hip combo with Duke Jordan on piano, Bill Crow on bass, and Frank Isola on drums – on a mellow set of short standards that includes "Hymn Of The Orient", "Stella By Starlight", "Thanks For The Memory", "Tis Autumn", and "You Turned The Tables On Me" – all played with an impeccable sense of tone, space, and rhythm – apparent even here in Getz's younger years!
