It doesn't happen too often, but there are times when the title of a jazz album and the material within interface perfectly. Hence The Steamer, where Stan Getz joined forces with a super West Coast-based rhythm section to produce some truly steaming music. "Blues for Mary Jane" is remarkable; for all of the straight-ahead heat generated by the rhythm section, Getz is incredibly relaxed, poised, and always under control while still managing to swing like mad. In other words, the style that he was able to carry over to his bossa nova adventures in the following decade is right here, ready to go. There is also room for the Getz-ballad manner on "You're Blase," and "Like Someone in Love" combines a leisurely swinging tempo with Getz's natural warmth…

The Stan Getz volume in Verve's Quiet Now series is a stellar collection of ballads from the '50s and '60s when Getz and his bands led jazz polls continually. His bossa material, which is his best known, is represented here by three cuts – and no, "Girl from Ipanema" is not one of them – including "Corcovado." That said, it's his interpretations of standards such as "Little Girl Blue," "It Never Entered My Mind," "Sweet Rain," and "Serenade in Blue" that the great tenorman's true lyrical gift comes into play.

This double-disc set features all of the studio performances between saxophonist Stan Getz and guitarist Jimmy Raney recorded between October of 1948 and April of 1953. The sheer number of labels the pair recorded for is staggering, from Sittin' in With to Roost, Savoy, Sesco, Clef, Prestige, and others. And while Getz, particularly on the early sides, is still deeply entrenched in his worship of Charlie Parker, the cool elegance of Raney's own playing is already asserting itself on the early sides, so that by 1951, Getz has moved toward the center from strictly bebop. Some of the other players on these sessions include Duke Jordan, Curly Russell, Blossom Dearie, Horace Silver, Roy Haynes, Frank Isola, and many others…

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!

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest DSD / HR Cutting remastering. Comes with a description. Features the original LP designs. After gaining initial fame with Woody Herman's band, Stan Getz went solo in the late '40s, hitting his zenith during the bossa nova craze of the early '60s. Before scoring with "Girl From Ipanema," though, Getz established himself with a slew of fine dates for Prestige and Verve, including this one from 1950. At the time, Getz's cool, Lester Young-inspired sound was becoming more distinct and harmonically varied, featuring the beautifully mellifluous tone he would soon turn into his trademark.

That this rare album was originally released only in Europe testifies to the dominance of jazz-rock in 1971 and not to the staggering quantity of imagination that one hears on the session today. Still co-leading his legendary European unit (this was their last recording), Francy Boland unleashed his classical training to produce dazzling, fantastically complex writing often loaded with dissonances, unusual groupings of instruments, freeform freakouts, alternating sections in 5/4 and 4/4, loose-jointed structures, and firestorm endings. Yet Getz's great ear picks everything up intuitively; his solos, though brief in playing time, are loaded with sometimes strident emotion and occasionally flirt with the outside…

Although the name Stan Getz (tenor sax) was initially synonymous with the West Coast cool scene during the mid-to-late 1950s, he likewise became a key component in the Bossa Nova craze of the early 1960s. Along with Astrud Gilberto (vocals), Getz scored a genre-defining hit with the "Girl From Ipanema," extracted from the equally lauded Getz/Gilberto (1963).

In response to shortsighted comments implying that Stan Getz and Zoot Sims sounded too much like each other and too similar to Lester Young, Ira Gitler liked to use the analogy of "…a friend calling you on the telephone. You know who it is immediately. It's the same thing when you hear a musician play." The secret, of course, is to listen so carefully and consistently that you feel as though you have become a friend of the artist. This sort of empathy is a vital ingredient in jazz - the empathy between composers, players, and listeners. Hearing Stan Getz recorded live in performance at Boston's Storyville club on October 28, 1951, spells it out marvelously…

This CD collates 3 dates made within less than a month by the same quintet on the West Coast. The enclosed recordings with Getz, partly arranged by Bob Brookmeyer, predate his long collaboration with Gerry Mulligan. The frontline of trombone and tenor sax without trumpet, although rather unusual, proves highly successful. The selections include unexpected oldies such as Roger Wolfe Khan's Crazy Rhythm from 1928 or the inevitable It Don't Mean A Thing, pepped up by Brookmeyer. Although the two horns are in the limelight, pianist John Williams also contributes several remarkable solos. All in all, this short lived group has rarely been ranked among Getz's best but the present music underlines just how well it played that summer of 1953.

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.
