Three Videos of Stan Getz


When Stan Gets is playing, I can’t stop listening. No really, I can’t stop him mid-track. His sound is so potent and hypnotic that I have to leave him on. Yesterday, the phone was ringing while I was listening to Stan Getz at Storyville. I let the call go to voicemail when I should have answered it. I almost clicked pause but I didn’t. That’s the influence Getz has over me. So let’s end the week with three great videos of Getz:

Here’s Getz and Byrd playing "South American stuff" on TV’s Perry Como Show
