The story goes that one day God announced he wished to play a musical instrument and so he choose the tenor saxophone because to him, it sounded closest to the sound of an angelic voice. An angel nearby hearing God suggested he listen to a Stan Getz recording which God did. After listening to a tune or two God declared that he had decided to choose another instrument. When the angel asked God why he had changed his mind God paused, smiled broadly, and answered..."because I have heard the voice of perfection". R.I.P. Stan Michael J. Simonetti May 15, 2009

Mr. Simonetti... whoever and wherever you are... This quote of yours is so beautiful. Had to share it! Thank you!
Many thanks to our friends here on the Forum, DENIS & ROGER for sending this to me! Bev *******************************************************************
Welcome to the new and improved SG forum! Firstly, my sincere apologies to all of you who joined the vbulletin forum on Stan's web page. I hope you will all come and join us here! (By the way... if you are already a member of 'ning', you can simply use your existing login and password to sign in) Stan's site is under new "creative management"! We found that vbulletin was just a tad 'dour'. This network allows for more interaction and freedom to be yourself. Add photos, music, videos, etc. While the site was created to remember/discuss Stan, we openly invite and look forward to all discussions about music, musicians and the like. I only request that we still 'keep it clean"! Remember, there are kids out there that may want to participate. Again, so sorry if this causes any inconvenience. But I do believe that you will all enjoy this new extension of Stan's web site! I would still request that you all please sign in using your name and not a screen name so as to avoid 'spammers'. This will help the administrators and moderators greatly with their task and time! All My Best, Bev P.S. While you can upload whatever music to your own page, please be respectful of copyright!
In 1962, at 13, my jazz loving grandmother introduced me to Stan Getz. When I say 'introduced' I don't mean in-person, but it seemed like it to me.I was asked to sit in the sweet spot while my…Continue
I am an aged "Silver Surfer" (nearly 77 years young) who is new to the Stan Getz sight. I have been collecting Stan's recordings since the early 1950's along with Gerry Mulligan, Modern Jazz Quartet & Dave Brubeck (especially with Paul Desmond) together with "Four Brothers" tenor men and have a large collection of their "issued" tracks. I love all their "Sounds" while I am able to hear> Good Listening to you all
