Stan Getz & Jimmy Raney [Mosaic Box]

This limited-edition three-CD set will be hard to acquire but it is a gem. Tenor saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist Jimmy Raney had very complementary cool-toned but hard-swinging styles. Their gig at Storyville in Boston resulted in some classic music that, along with five studio sessions, is included in this box. The supporting cast includes pianists Al Haig, Horace Silver, Duke Jordan, and Hall Overton ; the music was originally recorded for Roost, Clef, Norgran, and Prestige. This essential set is filled with exciting performances from Stan Getz when he was first becoming a highly influential force in jazz.

See the Complete Artwork and Booklet for the details
(Places, musicians, dates, etc)

The Discography oh the sessions in this set includes only US issues for reasons of space and readability. Even within these confines, the listings can be many for an artist of Getz’s stature. While we had luck with most of the sessions in this box, the two Roost studio dates, (B) and (D), were a nightmare. On some selections, we had to dub from LPs beacause no tape existed. On other tunes, there were 35 tapes, each on worse than the last and none coming close to a first or second generation. That is why the sound quality on these pales in comparison to that of the others. Suffice it to say, that we left no stone unturned and invested a great deal of time in transferring these sessions as best as possible.
