It was not long after tenor saxophonist Stan Getz (1927-1991) rose to fame during his late 1940's stint with the Woody Herman band that he came to be known as "The Sound." Few sobriquets have been so apt, for in his nearly half-century career, Getz retained an instrumental tone that, in blending an ethereal sonority with muscular heft, became both a jazz trademark and the inspiration for generations of horn players. Combined with his effervescent swing and a gift for lyrical melody making, Getz became one of the most popular and influential jazz musicians the music has known.

A teenage prodigy, Getz had already played with such illustrious Swing Era bandleaders as Benny Goodman before establishing himself as a star soloist in the Herman band's celebrated "Four Brothers" saxophone section; Getz s brief but beautiful turn on "Early Autumn" in 1949, catapulted him to stardom, an exalted position in the jazz universe he held until his death in 1991. Initially influenced by the airy sonority and melodiousness of saxophone legend Lester Young, Getz quickly developed his own instantly recognizable stylistic voice.

A renowned player throughout the bebop era of the 1940s and 50's, Getz achieved his greatest popularity in the early 1960s when his Jazz Samba and Getz-Gilberto albums, and the subsequent hit single, "The Girl From Ipanema," ushered in and defined the bossa nova craze. Getz, displaying the craving for new musical interest that characterized his entire career, then began working with adventurous younger players including Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke, Dave Holland and Fred Hersch. Never resting on his laurels, Getz, while maintaining his stature as the foremost mainstream saxophone stylist, continued to explore diverse musical paths. "The Sound" still rings clearly two decades since his passing.
