Stan Getz (short bio)

About the saxophonist, Stan Getz, (Philadelphia, February 2, 1927-Malibu, California, June 6, 1991), the famous critic already said in his famous book: “Jazz, from the origins to the present day,” Joachim E. Berendt, in the fifties about this musician: “…He is a virtuoso who can play anything possible with a tenor sax.”

And indeed, we are facing one of those musicians who achieve absolute mastery of their instrument by putting it at the service of a creative inspiration, permanently renewed and almost without limits. But Stan Getz is also one of the most original stylists in the history of jazz, and for many he is considered one of the five truly revolutionary tenor saxophonists in the history of this music.

With the ability to produce an emotional sound, suggestive in ballads and creative and splendid in fast tempos, his art was influenced by Charlie Parker’s playing on the one hand – Bird’s message resonated deeply with Stan Getz – and in the relaxed and fluid manners of Lester Young’s sax. His childhood took place in the New York neighborhood of the Bronx, where his parents emigrated from his native Philadelphia in 1931, when he was just four years old.

At the age of fifteen he debuted as a professional musician in Dick Rogers’ orchestra and for nine long years he was successively in a dozen big bands in constant learning, among them, those of Jack Teagarden, Jimmy Dorsey, or even that of the “king of swing.” , Benny Goodman, with whom he would record his first solos on disc. He moved to the American West Coast where he managed to form his own trio with which he performed at the “Swing Club” in Hollywood.

In 1947 and after a long period performing in small groups, the conductor, Woody Herman, hired them all for his orchestra and that is how Stan Getz became part of one of the best jazz bands in history, and with it, he was fundamental in the advent of the so-called “cool jazz”, especially when a year later, in December 1948, he recorded his historic solo in “Early Autumn”. Overnight, his name rose to international fame, he was given the nickname “The Sound” and dozens of saxophonists rushed wildly to try to imitate him. When he left Woody Herman’s orchestra in 1949, his career was already unstoppable, and he entered the following decade covered in popularity.

In 1952, like so many other jazz stars, he signed with Norman Granz’s organization, where he toured half the world playing the sax. In that period he had his first problems with drugs, but he managed to detoxify in Sweden where he remained, alternating his presence with another country where he was revered: Denmark. When he returned to the United States, he saw that John Coltrane’s star was shining brightly on the jazz and tenor sax music scene, but he was unfazed. His response was the recording of a masterpiece with the album he recorded for Verve in 1961 titled “Focus.”

But what really brought him back to the front row of jazz news was his turn towards South American rhythms when he recorded in 1962 with the guitarist, Charlie Bird, the bossa nova album “Jazz Samba”, although the album was still better and more accomplished. Recorded the following year with Gilberto, the Brazilian guitarist and titled “Getz/Gilberto” also for Verve.

However, Stan Getz did not allow himself to be captivated by the songs of sirens and, above all, he was a jazz man from head to toe and future great generations of musicians such as Chick Corea and Gary Burton passed through his group in the sixties. He spent the seventies and eighties recording countless high-quality albums and only interrupted his work in 1988 when he was diagnosed with liver cancer. He died three years later, on June 6, 1991.
