Stan Getz Quintet - Interpretations #3

Sublime early work from Stan Getz — a lyrical genius even at this early point in his career ! There's a subtle brilliance here that's undeniable — a tenor sound that draws from Lester Young and Ben Webster, but which pushes into fresh new territory for the 50s — lean, but still very soulful at the core — a blend that none of Stan's contemporaries could ever match this well ! The album features a group that includes a very young Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, plus rhythm by Teddy Kotick, John Williams, and Frank Isola. Tracks are longish and easily swinging — and Getz's tone, as always, makes the whole thing come together like magic ! Titles include "Oh Jane Snavely", "The Varsity Drag", "It Don't Mean A Thing", and "I'll Remember April"...

Thanks a lot Mel. The only flaw I see to this post is that the good Jimmy Raney was not part of this session ;)
