Today is the birthday of Stan Getz, great saxophonist of the lineage of Lester Young and known as “the sound” for that sweet and mellow tone, gone now nearly twenty years. Here he plays “Out of Nowhere”  in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1960, with Jan Johansson on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Ed Thigpen on drums. Very cool film treatment, too.

After all the awful news of today, it’s respite to sit with the music. Wonderful!

What an inimitable unforgettable musician … including all 10 of his personalities! A gifted Bronx boychick of Litvak distraction…
