All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
Velvet toned tenor saxophonist Stan Getz gigged all over northern Europe and Scandinavia from the summer of 1958 through the autumn of 1960.

It is highly recommended for seasoned jazz lovers as well as for those who are new to the tradition and want to know what it's all about.
