Release Info: Gillespie Dizzy & Stan Getz - Diz and Getz - 1954
Stanley Gayetzky or Stanley Gayetsky (born February 2, 1927 in Philadelphia – died June 6, 1991 in Malibu, California), usually known by his stage name Stan Getz, was an American jazz saxophone player. Getz was known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone, his prime influence being the wispy, mellow tone of his idol, Lester Young.
Getz was born on February 2, 1927 in Philadelphia. His parents were Ukrainian Jews who immigrated from the Kiev area in Ukraine in 1903. The family later moved to New York City for better jobs. Stan worked hard in school, receiving straight As, and finished 6th grade close to the top of his class. Getz's major interest was in musical instruments, and he felt a need to play every instrument in sight. He played a number of them before his father bought him his first saxophone at the age of 13. Even though his father also got him a clarinet, Getz instantly fell in love with the saxophone and began practicing 8 hours a day.
