As a complement to the rare Stan Getz thread I would like
to upload a few representative tracks.
The first one is from "Stan Getz with the Lighthouse All Stars"
A tune that Stan most likely played quite often around that time.
There is also a recording of it made in Birdland in August 1952.
Billie Holiday loved to sing this tune too.
I am sure Stan was a great romantic;)
The stunningly beautiful song
I Only Have Eyes For You (Warren/Dubin) .
So only a bit more than nine months after the Birdland gig here it is with a stellar
rhythm section on May 31, 1953.
Back to that beautiful club for a few minutes of paradise on earth.
Russ Freeman piano, Howard Rumsey bass and Shelly Manne drums.
