One of the all-time great tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz was known as “The Sound.” He possessed one of the most beautiful tones in all of jazz, and was among the greatest of melodic improvisers. His main early influence was Lester Young, but he grew to influence generations of players himself and never stopped evolving as a musician. Getz was an extraordinary improviser who created a distinctive sound and vocabulary. Getz’s solos managed to meld lush romanticism with jazz’s sense of physical toughness. He preferred ballads and medium-tempo tunes, though he was equally gifted at performing uptempo numbers. His emotional solos communicated directly and simply, revealing a canny yet innate logic. Getz recorded over 150 albums during his lifetime, and several are considered jazz classics: Stan Getz Plays in 1955, Focus from 1961 with arranger and composer Eddie Sauter, and Jazz Samba from 1962 with guitarist Charlie Byrd, which brought Brazil’s bossa nova to American shores. In 1964, the groundbreaking Getz/Gilberto album won several Grammy awards while the single “The Girl from Ipanema” crossed over to pop radio and became a worldwide hit. During the late ’60s and the ’70s, his playing became more athletic: Sweet Rain in 1967, Change of Scenes with the Clarke-Boland Big Band in 1971, and Captain Marvel in 1974 offered excellent examples of his bona fides in progressive jazz and fusion. Getz’s final album, People Time, was a live double-length duo set with pianist Kenny Barron. Issued shortly after his death from liver cancer in 1992, it is a distillation of all of his gifts.
