Stan Getz Community

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;)

How are you Thomas ?
Nice to hear from you.

These are two beautiful tracks I would dearly love to have (-:
With Freddie Hubbard, Milt Jackson, Ray Brown, Gerry Mulligan, Bob Brookmeyer ... I can only dream

Bag's Groove and Woodyn' You

Unfortunately I haven't seen it anywhere.
I wonder if it's still available !!!!

Let's get to work on it. Shall we ?

You take care
And please post more often;))

3. Sweetie Pie
4. Show Me The Way To Go Home into GoodNight Sweetheart
5. Stella By Starlight
6. All The Things You Are

Here we are treated to a beautiful performance, as if we

A welcome rendition of a seldom heard Frank Loesser standard

How a propos ? (-:

Again, the wonderful interplay between Bob and Stan is also heard on
Sweetie Pie. Stan is charging full ahead into seven full choruses of pure
delight.

So nice to hear Bob Brookmeyer featured on "Darn That Dream".
Beautiful sound and inventiveness.

On March 23 1985 we lost Zoot Sims one of the first Brothers.
Al Cohn, Herbie Steward, Stan, Jimmy Guiffre, Serge Chaloff, Gerry Mulligan

Later that summer at the Chicago Jazz Festival there was a tribute to Zoot.
Fortunately this was aired on NPR.

The following tracks can be heard

1-Let Me Count The Ways.
2-Falling in Love.
3-Evening in Paris.

Stan, Kenny Barron, George Mraz and Al Foster.

4-Red Door

Gerry Mulligan shares the front line with Stan.

5-Four Brothers
6-Early Autumn

Herbie Steward and Jimmy Guiffre complete the sax section.


Thanks to Roger Hunter for this session.

Hi Denis,

Yes, the Dusseldorf 1960 concert is a great concert with some outstanding playing by Stan and everyone else. It is nice for jazz fans to have a complete music "picture" of what was happening in the jazz world almost 50 years ago! Sad that we won't have that ever again, but hopefully, we'll continue to see surprise releases of concert audio and/or video footage such as Dusseldorf.

JATP in Dusseldorf March 28 1960.
From Rheinhalle.

This is the same date when Stan and John Coltrane played on that now famous video which is very popular on YouTube.
Stan brought his band to the concert.

Stan Getz,ts Jan Johansson,p
Ray Brown,b Ed Thigpen,dr

Playing five beautiful tracks.
Stan is heard introducing some of them.

Out of Nowhere 10:21
The Thrill Is Gone 6:50
Out of Nowhere 9:10
Woody'n You 7:42
Unknown title 7:56

Since Out Of Nowhere is heard twice, this might come from a different date then March 28.
To my knowledge these tracks have never been issued as part of the JATP concert or
anywhere else.

A wonderful version of The Thrill is Gone. Stan was playing it quite frequently
in 1960. There are at least two other recorded versions by Stan around that time.


Denis
Marla,

So true. Yes I think in a way we are lucky to be able to enjoy whatever else lies out there. Who would have thought about seeing Stan playing with John Coltrane, Oscar Peterson, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb so many years after that concert. Incredible.
This is really satisfying.

I'm a new member of the SG Community. I'm in search of a recording of Stan on alto sax. I'm told there's one here - but I have not been able to find it. Can anyone point me to this file?
