Editorial Reviews

This 2008 two CD collection brings together the entire quartet and quintet studio sessions made by Stan Getz for the Roost label during the early 1950s. The first CD contains the complete quartet sessions. Disc Two contains all of the quintet studio sessions. It must be noted that the second soloists here are both guitarists: Jimmy Raney and Johnny Smith. Horace Silver returns on piano for one session, and Duke Jordan (another ex-Charlie Parker Quintet member and always noteworthy for his creative intros) plays the last session. Four men take their turn at the drums on these sessions: Don Lamond, Frank Isola, Walter Bolden, and the celebrated Roy Haynes. 40 tracks. Definitive.
