Tenor saxophone master Stan Getz and his Quartet with Gary Burton: "Nobody Else But Me"

This was a band that recorded this wonderful album in March of 1964 and yet it was never released until 3 years after Stan Getz' death in 1994. The title track is "Nobody Else But Me", a great standard by Kern and Hammerstein. The reason why it was never issued was because Stan's popular bossa nova albums were selling like hotcakes and the powers that be didn't wish to dilute the market too much. So the session became forgotten and locked in the vaults. It was this particular band's only formal recording and it features all straight-ahead swingers and ballads and no vocals and bossa nova tunes. This same band later appeared in the Fall of 1964 at Isy's Supper Club on Georgia Street in Vancouver and it was a major musical event. The quartet included a very young Gary Burton on vibes, Gene Cherico on bass and the wonderful and unfortunately obscure drummer Joe Hunt.The repertoire is mostly standards plus a beautiful waltz by Stan's friend alto saxophonist Phil Woods and two originals by Gary Burton. A wonderful and fresh sounding band. We're happy this one came out of the vaults!
