Remembering Stan...

I am always on the lookout for rare or hard to find recordings from Stan.
This would be a great place to talk about our latest discoveries.

Well to start the ball rolling. About a month ago I was told about
the Gerald Wilson Big Band Modern reissue. 15 tracks altogether.
Tracks 1-8 are a reissue from a 1954 studio session. Tracks 9-15
are a previously unissued 1950 concert in San Francisco's Veterans Memorial
with guest stars Wardell Gray, Stan Getz and Zoot Sims.
Each one of these great sax players is given a showcase
tune and they finish the concert all blowing great solos and trading fours
on Hollywood Freeway.

Stan plays the beautiful "Out Of Nowhere". The way he quotes Broadway is just
too much;)

Stan in concert in Canada


This was a broadcast on FM radio.
It's a program which is still running now
its called "Jazz Sur Le Vif" a wonderful program. It runs weeknights.
But on one fabulous night somebody taped it right from his radio and
here it is in all its glory and wonderful acoustics.


Stan Getz Quartet
At the Shoctor Theatre,
Edmonton, ALBERTA
17 August 1984

Stan Getz - tenor sax
John Campbell - piano
George Mraz - acoustic bass
Ralph Pentland - drums

1. All the Things You Are (9:51)
2. It's You or No One (9:17)
3. Time After Time (10:25)

The piano player and drummer are fantastic.
Of course George is just too much.
I think we can hear Stan talking and leading them in some of the tunes

Jazz at the Red Hill Inn and Basin Street


We first have two sessions from the Red Hill Inn Pennsauken N.J.

From Feb 16 1957
Stan, Mose Allison pno, Willie Stump bs and Frank Isola dr

01- Introduction
02- Some Blues(Bronx Blues)
03- Polka Dots and Moonbeams

Fom May 18 1957
Stan, Mose Allison pno, Jug Taylor bs and a young Paul Motian on drums

04- Introduction
05- Jordu
06- Lover Man
07- Ain't You A Mess(Mose Allison feature)


The other session is from Basin Street New York April 12 1956
Stan, Dick Katz pno, Oscar Pettiford bs and Shelly Manne dr

08- Little Girl Blue
09- Lover Come Back To Me
10- Closing

well maybe I can quote Stan Levey which puts it way better then I ever could.
"The horn was an expression of his head. There were no barriers. The music just
came rolling out".

Well it is certainly that on "Lover Come Back To Me", where it is Stan all the way.
Beautifully backed by a stellar rhythm section, churning out
chorus after chorus of endless beauty.

These sessions are treasures.
The sound fixed in time, a night as so many others where Stan put in another night
of work. Nothing like hearing the radio announcer from the club. It's a complete immersion.
For one fleeting moment we're thrown back in time.;)

Available on a CD titled Manne-Getz-Zoot Live 1956-57
JazzBand EBCD 2124-2 from Flyright Records

A beautiful set indeed. The delighful Benny Golson's original Stablemates
