Tenor saxophone master Stan Getz with Bob Brookmeyer: "The 1953 Quintet: Interpretations"

This is one of the finest bands that tenor saxophone master Stan Getz ever led and yet it has not been very well documented on reissues. It began it's genesis on the East Coast but when Getz and his family moved to Los Angeles in 1953, Mr. Getz secured a long club engagement and brought this band out to the West.Norman Granz documented the band in the studio over several sessions and there is much to preserve. That is The Jazz feature for tonight. The band consisted of Stan Getz on tenor saxophone, Bob Brookmeyer on valve trombone, Johnny Williams on piano, Teddy Kotick on bass and the tasty Frank Isola on drums.Getz was at the top of his formidable game in 1953 and this band was one of his best. We'll hear 9 selections by this ensemble tonight. Check it out!
