Saxophonist Stan Getz shines in this album, recorded early in his career with top-flight musicians who created a perfect setting for his skills and sensitivity. Give him an "A" in "Plays well with others."


Like Zoot Sims (see If I'm Lucky in this "Getting Into Jazz" series), Stan Getz played tenor sax in the light, laid back, "cool" style originated by Lester Young. Getz's hallmark was his uniquely creamy tone, even more gentle than Sims.' His notes seem to float over the rhythm section like a leaf gently bobbing in a stream. He was also partial to the instrument's upper register, which enhances the delicacy of the sound. And yet you'll notice that his music doesn't just hang in the air. It has an intensity, an emotional drive that he delivers consistently, whatever the tempo. Getz was also a remarkable improviser, creating new melodic lines from even the most well-worn warhorse of a song.

Like Sims, Getz had a long and prolific recording career that spanned the 1950s to the 1980's. Unlike Sims, his playing changed significantly over the years, some of his later work more hard-edged and pyrotechnical. This album, Stan Getz and the Oscar Peterson Trio, recorded in 1957, showcases the very best of early Getz. He seems to have a joyful, musically sympathetic bond with the other musicians (Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass), and it shows in the music. === allaboutjazz.com
