Welcome to the new and improved SG forum!

Stan's site is under new "creative management"! This NING network allows for more interaction and freedom to be yourself. Add photos, music, videos, etc.

While the site was created to remember/discuss Stan, we openly invite and look forward to all discussions about music, musicians and the like. I only request that we still 'keep it clean"! Remember, there are kids out there that may want to participate.

I would still request that you all please sign in using your name and not a screen name so as to avoid 'spammers'. This will help the administrators and moderators greatly with their task and time!

All My Best,

Beautiful email about Stan...

I received an email from a lovely lady in Scandinavia about Stan. It was so sweet and also so revealing as to who Stan really was, that I asked if she would allow me to post her email. Christina graciously agreed... following is what she wrote:

And again.. Thank you so much Christina!

" Hi Bev

One of our members, Karl Sterling, just informed me that we had a couple "colorful girls" spamming on here in an ugly fashion. So sorry!

If anyone receives any spam, please let me know so I can AX them! ((-;

"Pennies From Heaven" analysis by Greg Fishman - June 4, 2008

Stan Getz’s Improvised Solo on "Pennies from Heaven" (from Stan Getz and the Oscar Peterson Trio, Verve 827 826-2) by Greg Fishman

Recorded in 1957—when Stan Getz was only 30 years old—the "Pennies From Heaven" solo stands up to the test to time amazingly well. Over five decades have passed since the solo was recorded, yet it doesn’t sound dated. This is one of the characteristics that all the jazz masters share: a timeless quality.

General Observations

This solo…

Hey Bev,
Thanks for thinking of me and the invite. I have thought of you often as of late. I rescently played a gig and nailed a ballad. One that Stan did very well. I felt like a good player for a minute. I see that youtube deleted Lush life from the north sea jazz festival. I loved that one. Anyway, I hope all is well. Have a great day, Bill
