Editorial Reviews

Verve's new Great Songs/Great Performances series is the ultimate value proposition for the music loving consumer. The first set of titles features some of the best known names in jazz performing 8 of their best loved songs at a great low price. Although these collections are the perfect place to start for the uninitiated, they are equally great for music aficionados whose music collection is missing these jazz standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stan & Standards April 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Stan Getz was a remarkable Grammy winning jazz musician who made a lasting impression to the music world through the beautiful tone of his saxophone. In a musical career that spans many decades, he mastered the art of sublime-saxophone-playing that resulted in some of the most enthralling and unforgettable recordings in jazz.

"Stan Getz: Standards (Great Songs, Great Performances)" is a 2010 compilation disc from The Verve Music Group that comprises eight archetypal tracks which define the sound of one of the best saxophonists in jazz. Among the finest musicians who played with Stan Getz in these memorable sessions include Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Ed Thigpen, to mention a few. The vocals on "It Might As Well Be Spring" was provided by one of the most famous Brazilian singers, Astrud Gilberto. This song from Rodgers and Hammerstein is one of my very favorite spring songs. It was one of the songs written for the 1945 musical "State Fair" and the most popular one. It became a favorite and most-recorded song to many singers and musicians for its entrancing rhythm and poetic lyrics. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year.

From the everlasting charm and fascinating rhythm of "Pennies From Heaven" and "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" to the timeless allure and haunting appeal of "Summertime" and "The Way You Look Tonight," the entire CD is a true beauty and a joy to listen to.

Listen now and enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars EASY ON THE SOUL February 10, 2014
By JAY Z.
Format:Audio CD
I LISTENED TO EVERY GENRE OF CLASSIC ROCK,FOLK,BLUES,METAL,NEW WAVE,THE 90S INFUSION,PEARL JAM,ALICE AND CHAINS,NIRVANA,SOFT ROCK AND SOME BLUES.ALOT OF THIS STUFF IS UNBELIVABLE ALOT IS ALSO CRAP.2000 MUSIC RAP,DANCE MUSIC TECHO TODAY IS CONSIDERED GREAT MUSIC.THEIR IS SOME OF THAT IS PASSABLE OR EVEN O.K BUT FOR THE MOST PART IS LITTLE KIDDIES AND TEENAGERS HANGING ONTO IDOLS WHO GET INTO TROUBLE AND LATCH ON TO ANYTHING THAT HAS A BEAT IS CONSIDERED GREAT. SO AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF 53 I HAVE THIS FRIEND WHO IS INTO JAZZ AND I PLAY THIS CD AND IT CALMED ME DOWN WAS VERY BASIC AND SWEET. I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD I COULD MELLOW FROM MY WAYS AS A ROCKER. THIS DISC MADE ME FEEL MELLOW AND MY AGE AND IT FELT REALLY GOOD.
