Synopsis

Amazon.com
Tenor saxophonist Stan Getz was at the peak of his popularity after his featured role as one of the "Four Brothers" in Woody Herman's band of the late 1940s. His breathy, post-Lester Young ballad style would go on to become one of the most recognizable sounds of 1950s jazz. The Best of the Roost Years shows Getz in the starring role with great sidemen, including the exceptionally sympathetic guitarist Jimmy Raney, pianists Horace Silver, Al Haig, and Duke Jordan, and various rhythm section components including bassist Tommy Potter and drummer Roy Haynes. "Autumn Leaves" sums up the Getz appeal. --John Swenson
 

CD Reviews

The Executive Summary
William Faust | Columbus, Ohio | 11/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This single CD is a compilation from Getz' early 50's recordings for the Roost label. I highly recommend the 3 CD set, which is marvelously assembled and packaged, but if for some reason you need a sampler this is a good one. The sound quality is a tad under par due to recording limitations of Roost apparently, but this collection and its big brother showcase one of the four brothers just as he broke out and began to come of age on his own. The chemistry with guitarist Jimmy Raney is sometimes breathtaking. Highly recommended."
