At the time of Stan Getz’s death in 1991 several obituaries hailed him as “a pioneer who changed the face of jazz.” As Gelly shows in this new examination of the great jazz saxophonist’s music, the truth is much more interesting. Getz certainly absorbed Lester Young’s approach to the tenor saxophone, and without doubt popularized the bossa nova as a jazz genre with “The Girl From Ipanema.” But Getz was a unique, highly personal artist who spoke for nobody but himself. The real changes were those within his own playing, which grew and deepened throughout his life, sometimes even reaching beyond jazz itself. And despite all this, as this book eloquently demonstrates, Getz remained characteristically Getz, from beginning to end. Photos.
