Jazz 100 - Stan Getz 06 Jul 2017
One of the great tenor saxophonists, Stan Getz emerged from the big band era with an immediately identifiable sound and the light but emotionally penetrating style that popularised bossa nova in the 1960s. Always ready to challenge himself he recorded with strings on Focus and continued to evolve through more robust Latin American settings, fusion and, finally, increasingly refined acoustic quartets.
