Hi Denis. Yes this is a fabulous forum to cometo...I ma glad to be a part. If any music "Getz" me listening...it is that of Stan Getz:) I have heard none other like it and truely an appreciate every note played. God bless you:)
Denis, great to finally meet you! I've seen you on TJN several times and have been wanting to hang. My mom played sax and introduced me to Stan Getz music decades ago, and I do mean decades! It'll be nice to relive those memories here and to meet cool folks like yourself who know true music when they hear it. I hope to hear you play soon too! I'll visit your TJN page tonight.
Wondered if you ever heard Errol Buddle.our best jazz musician in Australia.
Errol won a down beat poll in the 50's on bassoon and formed the Australian Jazz Quartet
I think Errol may have played with Stan at some stage but I'm not sure.
I used to play tenor myself but only semi professional
Have always been fascinated by Stan's sound in the upper register.
Anyhow its great that this site preserves one of the most exciting tenor players ever.
Thanks; no I didn't see your reply. Will check over there now. Tomorrow, I'll put up the other tune from the same video - in fact, I'm going to be asking all you experts to help me, as Stan is playing a ballad I don't know (right after he does Woody 'n You. If I can, may post it to my page here soon!
