The essentials of Stan Getz on 2 CDs.

The more time passes, the more the name of Stan Getz becomes essential in the firmament of jazz giants. This admirable artist, who knew with great elegance how to make himself loved by a much wider audience than that of pure jazz lovers, possessed in fact, beyond the irresistible seduction of a sublime sonority, all the assets and all the trappings of greatness. He particularly knew the art of making the most beautiful melodies sing, which he chose carefully, he found the ideal tempo for each, he “swung” intensely (listen to him here with Dizzy Gillespie , Lionel Hampton or Count Basie ) , he never spoke to say nothing, despite his impressive instrumental technique. Here he is at one of his peaks, in recordings made without any commercial constraints.

He is systematically surrounded by musicians chosen for their talent and their complicity, the trombonist Bob Brookmeyer , the guitarist Jimmy Raney , the pianists Duke Jordan , Jimmy Rowles , Lou Levy , John Williams and Bengt Hallberg , the drummers Frank Isola , Shelly Manne , Max Roach ... The big guy, in a way!
