This 10 CD box contains around 500 minutes of recordings featuring Stan Getz from between 1946 and 1957. Most of those were originally released under his own name, but there is also stuff lead by (or cooperations with) Terry Gibbs, Al Haig, Jimmy Raney, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Oscar Peterson and J. J. Johnson. After browsing some of the albums included here, it's safe to say that there are quite a few recordings that were most probably not released on CD before. Unlike most other documents wallet boxes this one comes with band names, recording locations and recording dates for all tracks.
15 track compilation that pulls together this talented production duo’s best work.
In the '40s, Getz played with Goodman, Herman and Kenton. In the '60s, he helped spark the bossa-nova explosion. In between, he became one of the top sax stars in jazz, and this 154-track set captures him in that '50s prime. You'll hear scads of studio sessions plus live stuff including gems taped at the Shrine Auditorium in '57; includes And the Angels Swing; Stardust; What's New; My Old Flame; The Lady in Red; Imagination; Prelude to a Kiss, and more!
Robinsongs brings you perhaps the definitive round up of cool tracks to be released by CTI Records and affiliated label Kudu on a Double CD.
The third in a series of collections of danceable jazz from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s that wasn't afraid to throw in rock, soul, pop, and blues elements (the prior volumes being Mod Jazz and Mo' Mod Jazz). What makes this stand out from other compilations of the sort, not to mention most jazz compilations of any sort, is its sheer irreverence and willingness to mix in tracks that might be considered inappropriate, or downright blasphemous, by purists.
