Hi Geoff

Nice to meet you here. Well Australia and New Zealand have given us some great jazz players. Mike Nock and more recently Andrew Speight. Unfortunately I never heard Errol even though he spent time overhere.

My best

Hi Geoff,

Sorry for being so late. I was away on vacation for the past few weeks;)
I am not sure I understand the problem. But you should be able
to click on My Photo and it will allow you to upload a photo.
Let me know if it works.

Hi Geoff(not Zoot! that just cracks me up!)
You read that book? Oh dear... I'm sorry!! HORRIBLE!
But yes, the Hoad's were wonderful. Stan and Lew were very good friends. We were at the Campo de Tenis every day. Good memories!

ps... BURN that book! LOL!

Hi Geoff,
I don't really have DVD's of my dad! A couple but not many at all. If you google stan getz dvd's some will pop up.

Also I found this link for Amorous Cat:

I don't have any of his sheet music. Soon we will be offering this on the web site, but that has not been set up as of yet.

I'm very curious about the two middle aged ladies! Can you tell me where you say them? I will have a look and get back to you on that!

Have a great day!

Hi Geoff,

Nice to hear from you.

I think I already posted something in the Rare Stan Getz threads
on the forums. Let me just copy/paste that;
here it is

- Stan Getz and Chet Baker In Stockholm Feb 1983. Very hard to get.
Was only available in Europe. Released by KJ Jazz.
- Stan Getz The Last Recording. Concert in Munich
- Stan Getz Vintage Getz. Recorded at Robert Mondavi's Vineyards.
- Cool Summers Stan Getz & Alto Madness. Recorded at the Paul Masson Vineyards.
- Stan Getz Live. This is a duplicate of the Cool Summers DVD.
- Jazz Icons John Coltrane Live in 1960,61 & 65.
This includes a session with Stan Getz. (Hackensack and a Ballad Medley).

I like to check with tower records(
Just search for Stan Getz. They usually are able
to ship your orders within a few days.

Hope this helps.
