Stan Getz at Storyville, vol. 1 & 2

A great CD that combines volumes 1 and 2 of Stan's early live recordings at Storyville — excellent small group sessions done with a group that includes Jimmy Raney on guitar, Al Haig on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass, and Tiny Kahn on drums. The mix of guitar and tenor is great together — a sound that became one of Stan's calling cards in the early 50s — and even the live setting can't stifle the strength of his unique tone ! The CD features a total of 13 cuts in all — and titles include "Budo", "Jumpin With Symphony Sid", "Yesterdays", "Thou Swell", "Mosquito Knees", and "Parker 51".

One of the finest small groups of all times. Thanks Mel.

Incidentally, Teddy Kotick somehow wound up playing in a small group with the peripatetic J. R. Monterose in upstate NY clubs, late 1970s.
