Remembering Stan...

All Blog Posts (72)


I am an aged "Silver Surfer" (nearly 77 years young) who is new to the Stan Getz sight.  I have been collecting Stan's recordings since the early 1950's along with Gerry Mulligan, Modern Jazz Quartet & Dave Brubeck (especially with Paul Desmond) together with "Four Brothers" tenor men and have a large collection of their "issued" tracks.  I love all their "Sounds" while I am able to hear> Good Listening to you all

In 1952 Stan Getz did a live recording of a tune he wrote called "SWEETIE PIE" in one of the jazz clubs in NYC. and I believe it's the only one he did on this tune.
