|Title: Hamp and Getz
Personnel: Stan Getz (tenor sax), Lionel Hampton (vibes), Lou Levy (piano), Leroy Vinnegar (bass), Shelly Manne (drums).
Comments: Unbeknownst to most Stan Getz fans, the saxophonist was a highly respected be-bop player in the '50's before he struck it rich in the popular world of Bossa Nova in the 1960's. On this recording, Stan shows off his amazing chops, especially on the burner, "Cherokee."
|Title: Getz and Gilberto (Remastered)
Personnel: Stan Getz (tenor sax), Antonio Carlos Jobim (piano), Joao Gilberto (guitar and vocals), Tommy Williams (bass), Milton Banana (drums), Astrud Gilberto (vocals).
Comments: Ah, the soothing sounds of Bossa Nova from Brazil, by way of Stan Getz. A world phenomenon in the 1960's, the silky sounds of Stan's horn are showcased avidly on this recording, a great CD to own if you've never heard Bossa Nova.
Personnel: Stan Getz (tenor sax), Kenny Baron (piano), Rufus Reid (bass), Victor Lewis (drums).
Comments: Stan's career spanned five decades and has influenced many a horn player. Himself a Lester Young groupie in the 1940's, Stan's sound remained unique throughout his life. After a few bars, musicians can identify his playing by his sound - silky, yet with a crinkle to it. This recording documents one of his later bands, with the outstanding pianist, Kenny Baron, and drummer, Victor Lewis, swinging away in support of Stan.
