Ultimate Stan Getz

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Cook
Verve's Ultimate series lets the professionals do the picking. In the case of Ultimate Stan Getz, tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson selected the cuts that fill this 12-track sampler of Getz delicacies. Roughly spanning the latter '50s to the late '60s, the disc takes in Getz's work with Oscar Peterson, arranger Eddie Sauter "Once Upon a Time" from the Focus album, and Dizzy Gillespie "Siboney, Pt. 2", as well as the obligatory bossa cut "Desafinado". There are also some fine sides from his early West Coast sessions "S-H-I-N-E" and 1967's stellar date with Chick Corea, Sweet Rain "Con Alma". A solid and unique Getz roundup.
