Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

One of the all-time great tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz was known as "The Sound" because he had one of the most beautiful tones ever heard. Getz, whose main early influence was Lester Young, grew to be a major influence himself and to his credit he never stopped evolving.

Getz had the opportunity to play in a variety of major swing big bands while a teenager due to the World War II draft. He was with Jack Teagarden (1943) when he was just 16, followed by stints with Stan Kenton (1944-1945), Jimmy Dorsey (1945), and Benny Goodman (1945-1946); he soloed on a few records with Goodman. Getz, who had his recording debut as a leader in July 1946 with four titles, became famous during his period with Woody Herman's Second Herd (1947-1949), soloing (along with Zoot Sims, Herbie Steward, and Serge Chaloff) on the original version of "Four Brothers" and having his sound well-featured on the ballad "Early Autumn." After leaving Herman, Getz was (with the exception of some tours with Jazz at the Philharmonic) a leader for the rest of his life.

During the early '50s, Getz broke away from the Lester Young style to form his own musical identity and he was soon among the most popular of all jazzmen. He discovered Horace Silver in 1950 and used him in his quartet for several months. After touring Sweden in 1951, he formed an exciting quintet that co-featured guitarist Jimmy Raney; their interplay on uptempo tunes and tonal blend on ballads were quite memorable. Getz's playing helped Johnny Smith have a hit in "Moonlight in Vermont"; during 1953-1954, Bob Brookmeyer made his group a quintet and, despite some drug problems during the decade, Getz was a constant poll winner. After spending 1958-1960 in Europe, the tenorman returned to the U.S. and recorded his personal favorite album, Focus, with arranger Eddie Sauter's Orchestra. Then, in February 1962, Getz helped usher in the bossa nova era by recording Jazz Samba with Charlie Byrd; their rendition of "Desafinado" was a big hit. During the next year, Getz made bossa nova-flavored albums with Gary McFarland's big band, Luiz Bonfá, and Laurindo Almeida, but it was Getz/Gilberto (a collaboration with Antonio Carlos Jobim and João Gilberto) that was his biggest seller, thanks in large part to "The Girl from Ipanema" (featuring the vocals of Astrud and João Gilberto).

Getz could have spent the next decade sticking to bossa nova, but instead he de-emphasized the music and chose to play more challenging jazz. His regular group during this era was a piano-less quartet with vibraphonist Gary Burton, he recorded with Bill Evans (1964), played throughout the 1965 Eddie Sauter soundtrack for Mickey One, and made the classic album Sweet Rain (1967) with Chick Corea. Although not all of Getz's recordings from the 1966-1980 period are essential, he proved that he was not afraid to take chances. Dynasty with organist Eddie Louiss (1971), Captain Marvel with Chick Corea (1972), and The Peacocks with Jimmy Rowles (1975) are high points. After utilizing pianist Joanne Brackeen in his 1977 quartet, Getz explored some aspects of fusion with his next unit which featured keyboardist Andy Laverne. Getz even used an Echoplex on a couple of songs but, despite some misfires, most of his dates with this unit are worthwhile. However, purists were relieved when he signed with Concord in 1981 and started using a purely acoustic backup trio on most dates. Getz's sidemen in later years included pianists Lou Levy, Mitchell Forman, Jim McNeely, and Kenny Barron. His final recording, 1991's People Time, (despite some shortness in the tenor's breath) is a brilliant duet set with Barron.

Throughout his career Getz recorded as a leader for Savoy, Spotlite, Prestige, Roost, Verve, MGM, Victor, Columbia, SteepleChase, Concord, Sonet, Black Hawk, A&M, and EmArcy among other labels (not to mention sessions with Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, and Gerry Mulligan) and there are dozens of worthy records by the tenor currently available on CD. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Timeless.... . . . e x q u i s i t e music....... . . . . This is the sound of legends and talent so rich.
Back in 1964, I bought this album as a teenager - completely changed my musical life. Have been a Brazilian and Bossa Nova fan ever since.
Astrud is an incredible singer
I love this cut!!!!
A Classic
Simply a classic piece. Priceless.
Love Bosa Nova.......B e a u t i f u l . . . . . . . T i m e l e s s . . . n o t h i n g like it!!!
I can not get enough of this beautiful música
This music was created by Antonio Carlos Jobim. He have sereval recordings and this is one of them. I believe the credit should be corrected.
I do love this collaboratio n and I am a huge fan of Gets. But Getz collaboratio n was to play the song with Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astrud Gilberto on this is the English version.
The original is in Portuguese.
I listen to this and weep because I don't think anyone will ever make music like this again.

Simply Timeless!!!
When Getz collaborated with Joabim and the Gilbertos, the most perfect musical genre resulted. Words cannot do this music justice. It is timeless. I recently played The Girl from Ipanema album for my staff at a Sunday get-together . They are all between 23 and 30 and loved the music. They didn't know what it was, but were astonished when I told them it was all recorded before 1965.
This music is oh, so soothing, so creative, complex, yet it doesn't ever force itself on you. There are no demands...on l y join in if you desire. For that reason, I've been attracted to it since the 60s. I still have this album and always remember great times listening to this genre of music.
I grew up listening to this album. It was one of my dad's favorites because he loved to play sax like Stan Getz. I miss him so much, especially when I hear this.

Great song to listen to when cruising the Carribean

Someone made comment that Stan Getz refused to play bossa nova at a performance and, as a result, wrote him off. What is it some people don't get about true artistry? Stan didn't have contempt for the audience, just the fools who think that he owes them something. For the great performing artist, music isn't a popularity contest.

The best there is!

@henderson82 9 - without question; I may have to dig out my copy of 'Black Orpheus':))
henderson829

Adorei!!! =)

Wow !!,what a great albun
Perhaps the greatest album of all time. You have been able to find this album in stores since its release in 1963. Not sure if any other album has had such longevity. This afternoon my 16 year old was saying appreciative things about it as I was playing it on the way home from school. That's 7 children in a row who have liked it as well as myself. She was saying that the songs of today would not last nearly as long, in fact they wouldn't last at all, but this recording does. Timeless it is.
My favorite album of all times!
Can we throw Astrud a bone here? She made this song a classic...
my favorite version of this song. the definitive version in my humble opinion.
murieltablad a
Love it.!!!!
I love Astrud and Joao gilberto; I have recently been to South America and love the music coming from this part of the world.
fantastic music...sett l i n g to the spirit
Said to hear that Pamela. Astrud Gilberto probably the best Bossa Nova Singer of all time! You would think she would display her vocals for her audience to enjoy!
Thanks, Lou. Same thing with Astrud Gilberto when I saw her live in performance. She refused to sing anything remotely bossa nova, and had contempt for her audience. Yeah, I want my money back!
