The Definitive Stan Getz

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
The Definitive Stan Getz winds its way through the major periods of the legendary tenor saxophonist, starting with his tenure in Woody Herman & the Second Herd in 1948, through '50s cool jazz dates recorded for the Roost label, mid-'60s bossa nova experiments with Jo?o Gilberto, his nod toward a harder sound in the '70s propelled by a rhythm section of Chick Corea, Ron Carter, and Grady Tate, and his final recordings in the late '80s/early '90s with pianist Kenny Barron.

    Getz is one of the greats.

    The recording isn't exactly a large compendium of Stan Getz performances but worth the money.
