Stan Getz

Born:

Beginnings... Stan Getz was born at St. Vincent's Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Feb. 2, 1927. He had one brother, Robert, who was born on October 30, 1932. His parents had come from the Kiev area in the Ukraine in 1903, tired and fearful of the Pogroms. The Getz family had first settled in West Philadelphia, but moved to New York City after Stan's fraternal uncle told them there were better jobs in New York. They lived first on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and then moved up to the East Bronx.

Stan's father had many jobs, but he wasn't aggressive by nature and was thus often unemployed

Fred Hersch: Alive... And Kicking

Read "Fred Hersch: Alive... And Kicking" reviewed by Jiaowei Hu


Few musicians have shaped jazz with such elegant, instinctive, and intimate variations as Fred Hersch. Constantly. Over four decades, life's ups and downs have not stopped him from coming back, time and again, to performing live. No word other than “alive" can be more suitable for the pianist, and it is no coincidence that he chose ...

Hence this solo podcast looking at jazz box sets. Yes, the vinyl revival is all grown up enough to ...

The Best of Tony Bennett

Read "The Best of Tony Bennett" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


"Tony Bennett is the best singer in the business, the best exponent of a song," Frank Sinatra once said. “He's the singer who gets across what the composer has in mind, and probably a little more. There's a feeling in back of it." Tony Bennett began his career as a singing waiter in his ...

Tubby Hayes: No Blues: The Complete Hopbine '65

Read "No Blues: The Complete Hopbine '65" reviewed by Chris May


"Who the fuck are you?" said Tubby Hayes, encountering Ron Mathewson on the bandstand of London's Hopbine club an hour or so before the start of the gig which this album chronicles. “I'm the bassist," said just turned twenty-one year old Mathewson, who had been booked to deputise for the Hopbine's regular bassist ...

Everyone's Gone to the Movies

Read "Everyone's Gone to the Movies" reviewed by Patrick Burnette


Mike ran across a soundtrack or two in his library excursions and hence an episode that's just what it says on the tin--a look at four soundtracks by jazz musicians.

The Saxophones: To Be A Cloud

Read "To Be A Cloud" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The monk and Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh had a saying, “I have arrived, I am home." Hanh's writing was an influence on this third album from husband-and-wife pairing The Saxophones, namely Alexi Erenkov and Alison Alderdice. Hanh's use of clouds as a metaphor for impermanence became a keystone for them, but his thoughts on going ...

Stan Tracey Quartet: Jazz Suite Inspired By Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood

Read "Jazz Suite Inspired By Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood" reviewed by Chris May


Pianist and composer Stan Tracey's Under Milk Wood, released in 1966, was among the first albums to prove that British jazz could, on a good day, stand as tall as its American parent. Over a decade would pass, however, before that fact was widely accepted by jazz lovers in either America or Britain. Indeed, it is ...
