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 Getz Early Stan 1953

This two-LP set includes seven sessions from 1949-50 and one from 1953 that feature the great tenor-saxophonist Stan Getz. Getz is heard with a Terry Gibbs septet, in quartets with either pianist Al Haig or Tony Aless, with Haig in a sextet that features vocals from Blossom Dearie, on a couple of collaborations with guitarist Jimmy Raney and in a classic if odd date with four other tenors (Al Cohn, Allen Eager, Brew Moore and Zoot Sims), all of whom sounded identical at the time. This two-fer (which contains several alternate takes) gives one a fine overview into the early days of Stan Getz.

Herb Ellis Nothing But The Blues

Every Herb Ellis follower knows this one, and also knows that this album is easily one of his best in his lenghty career. But, did you know that it had also been released as "After Hours Session"? (See second cover).

"Guitarist Herb Ellis considers this is his favorite personal album and it is easy to see why. With trumpeter Roy Eldridge and tenor saxophonist Stan Getz contributing contrasting but equally rewarding solos and lots of inspired riffing while bassist Ray Brown and drummer Stan Levey join Ellis in the pianoless rhythm section, these performances have plenty of color and drive.Herb Ellis does indeed stick to the blues during the original eight selections yet there is also a surprising amount of variety. This CD reissue has been augmented by four numbers from 1958 originally recorded for a European soundtrack. Getz, Eldridge, and Coleman Hawkins all have their features but Dizzy Gillespie fares best."

Some trivia.

You have probably seen "Blues For Junior" in countless Herb Ellis recordings. The reason is simple. This is his all-time favourite blues. This is a Ray Brown tune, and Junior is his son.
"Big Red's boogie woogie". Red is Herb Ellis himself.
"Patti Cake". Patti is Herb's wife.
"Blues for Janet". Janet is Herb's niece.
Don't ask about Pap in "Pap's blues"; not even Herb recalls his identity.

Amazing though it may sem, this album has been discontinued, and Amazon lists one copy at $91.45.

both are the same album

Hi everyone,this one is not rare but I think is the best of all of them. Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson Trio "The Silver Collection" (1957)
the Stuart Broomer review Say's about all that needed to be said when I first ran across it 8 or 9 years ago.Then I opened up the notepad in the file the other day and thought after so long of always coming back to this album it need my input.Yes I do love this a lot but I started to write a review I am now convinced it is the best.Here's Stuart's first then mine.
Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson were both very consummate performers, comfortable at any tempo, when they met for this 1957 recording, and they're clearly enjoying one anther's skills on ballads and uptempo tunes alike. The group is one of the finest editions of Peterson's trios, with bassist Ray Brown and guitarist Herb Ellis. It's virtually a machine for quiet swing, and the absence of a drummer lets Getz's silky sound come to the fore with all its details intact. For all his fame as a virtuosic pianist, Peterson is an underrated accompanist. He complements a soloist with deft fills and unobtrusive propulsion, and the backgrounds he supplies here are as subtle as his solos are extroverted. The program is a good mix of standards and Getz originals, including the joyous "Tour's End," while the extended ballad medley could define jazz lyricism. There's also a brief but infectious version of Herb Ellis's "Detour Ahead," the guitarist's early and highly successful foray into songwriting. --Stuart Broomer

"This album presents a very important collaboration. Stan Getz may be the most lyrical tenor saxophone player to have ever graced the face of the earth. Only Lester Young comes close. Prez modeled his sound on that of Frankie Trumbauer's C-melody saxophone, and Stan Getz' model is the Prez. Both of them transcend Trumbauer's syrupy improvisations. Getz' tone and the lyricism it supports are evident. All of this is for context, of course. This recording is truly a major musical event. It was on a par with Lester Young's famous collaborations with Teddy Wilson and Oscar Peterson. During this 1957 recording session, Oscar Peterson's trio and Stan Getz were more than comfortable with one another, and their mutual musical respect yielded classic performances . The cooperation is evident in Stan Getz' solo on "I Want to Be Happy," a model of precision and lyrical invention. Oscar Peterson's solos are equally impressive; there's no unnecessary embellishment or decoration, and he swings powerfully. The long ballad medley--"Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "I Don't Know Why, I Just Do," "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "I Can't Get Started," and "Polka Dots and Moonbeams"--features fine solos by Stan Getz and Osacr Peterson as well as Herb Ellis on guitar and Ray Brown on bass. In the interplay between the trio and Stan Getz in such numbers as Stan Getz' "Bronx Blues." the quartet sounds like a permanent group. In "Three Little Words" Herb Ellis sets down a solid rhythm and Osacr Peterson comps behind Stan Getz' opening solo before delivering an eloquent statement of his own which Stan Getz answers with equal grace. The Getz-Peterson collaboration is particularly appealing on Herb Ellis' "Detour Ahead," a prime instance of their treatment of ballad material. On "Sunday" Ray Brown's persistent bass and Herb Ellis' percussive guitar support Stan Getz admirably. The quartet even approximates a rhythm'n blues song with Stan Getz' "Blues for Herky." It's not every day that you hear Herb Ellis playing blues guitar with Oscar Peterson doing boogie woogie and Stan Getz blowing like he was in a jump band. But here it is, and it comes as a surprise bonus with some really superb jazz."

This album is very soothing and relaxing. The emphasis is definitely on Stan Getz; he plays over Oscar's piano, so it's more Stan Getz than the Oscar Peterson Trio. If you're a fan of Stan Getz, you'll love this album."

"This is hands-down, the best Jazz Album I've ever owned. Whether sitting in front of the speakers with eyes closed, absorbing every note, or using it as unobtrusive (but swingin') background music while I work, this album shines. [If you're an audio snob who expects every last KHz of treble to be there, you will be disappointed. The audio quality is only on par with a good cassette tape, but the music more than makes up for it."]Richard Ransom
