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;)

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?

Stan Getz Live at Stanford University.

Jan 17, 1988

Just after Stan's operation. A concert was held at Stanford.
This date is noteworthy because of Stan's health at the time.
Just coming back from a tough operation to take out a malignant tumor.
Still his sound is absolutely gorgeous.
What a joy to hear Jack Sheldon and George Cables.

The personnel

George Cables piano, Jack Sheldon trumpet & vocals , Kim Park alto, Chuck Israels bass, Donald Bailey drums

The tracks

Well'be Together Again
I Got Rhythm
Obbligatos
On Green Dolphin Street

Moving performances all around.


Thanks to my dear friend Roger Hunter.

Hi Richard,

Luckily yes.
Early on in Los Angeles mid fifties
Recorded live at the Haig.

In the late fifties one recording date in Chicago.

Finally the Stockholm and Oslo concert in the early 80's.

All recordings easily available.
