Prezervation

LP (Item 505487) Prestige, Early 50s — Condition: Near Mint-
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".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label pressing. Cover has a large corner cut and light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Grand Stan
Joker (Japan), 1977. Near Mint-

Hall Of Fame Jazz Greats, Early/Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Wonderful early work by Stan – originally recorded for the Roost label, then compiled here for the Jazztone LP series.

Inner City, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic work from Stan Getz! The sound here is wonderful – moody late 70s Getz, with some especially soulful moments on the mellow tracks too – that kind of spun-out blowing that we first started finding in Stan's career right around the Sweet Rain album, and which continued to show ...

Captain Marvel
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+
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, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Reflections
Verve, 1963. Very Good+
A lost chapter in the Stan Getz sound of the 60s – an album that features Stan blowing in front of some beautiful backdrops set by Lalo Schifrin and Claus Ogerman! The sound is super mellow – dreamy, but never sleepy – with Stan blowing in these soulful, magical, exploratory ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold
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!

Another World
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Incredible electric work from Stan Getz – one of his few sessions of this type from the 70s, and a doozy! The album follows heavily on the heels of Getz's brilliant Captain Marvel set – mixing together electric rhythms and some wonderfully open-minded blowing, in a sound that shows ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

In The Beginning
Prestige, Late 40s/1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2LP set that brings together a huge amount of pivotal work from the early bop years of Diz, including titles recorded for the Guild and Musicraft labels, as well as Prestige.
