JAZZIZ: The Week in Jazz features 'Getz at the Gate'

Bookmark and Share

Previously Unreleased Stan Getz Album Out Now: Verve released Getz at the Gate, a new live album documenting a concert performance by saxophonist Stan Getz from November 26, 1961, at New York's Village Gate. The concert features the legendary saxophonist/composer playing with his then-relatively new quartet of Steve Kuhn, John Neves and Roy Haynes. The show was professionally recorded but was soon forgotten, and the tape languished in the vaults for almost six decades. Aside from including several pieces Getz recorded in the '50s, Getz at the Gate also features his only known recording of "It's All Right With Me" and "Yesterday's Gardenias." Listen to the former track via the player below.
