Product Description

AVID Jazz presents three classic Stan Getz albums - plus, including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Stan Getz & The Oscar Peterson Trio', 'Hamp & Getz' and 'Jazz Giants' plus four additional tracks from Getz and Peterson and an outtake from the Hamp- Getz album. We guess you could say that this collection of classic albums follows the theme of our super-group idea with the recent Lionel Hampton release. For our first selection, the meeting of the cool Stan Getz and the perhaps more traditional Oscar Peterson Trio would certainly rate as a meeting of jazz superstars, take a listen and find out! The old meets the new with our next album as Stan Getz joins Lionel Hampton following a meeting of the two during sessions for the Benny Goodman Movie soundtrack. The difference in styles and musical theories seem to evaporate as the two giants are joined by Shelley Manne, Lou Levy and Leroy Vinnegar. Finally we have 'Jazz Giants' which as they say, does what it says on the tin.....namely, features a true super-group of jazz musicians and again joins the old with the new in a scintillating session. Here Getz is again joined by the Oscar Peterson Trio alongside Gerry Mulligan from the new school and Harry Edison and Louis Bellson from the old. We think you will agree the session achieved Mulligan s stated aim 'to organise a unit composed of some of the older jazzmen and those of the younger musicians who can do it. It would be a fine opportunity to play and create together'. All three albums (plus) have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!

The albums featured are:
1)Stan Getz with the Oscar Peterson Trio (1957)
2)Hamp And Getz (1955)
3)Jazz Giants (1957)

They are complete including the 4 remaining tracks from the Peterson session and an alternate take of 'Gladys' with Hampton.

The virtues of the Getz/Peterson session have long been praised. They swing delicately and instinctively taking advantage of a drummer less quartet. Getz opens with a pacey 'I Want To Be Happy', driven by Ray Brown (b) and Herb Ellis (g). The Ballad Medley is the ideal vehicle for Getz to display his moving velvety sound especially with 'Polka Dots And Moonbeams'. Ellis shines on 'Bronx Blues', but the whole album is a delight and is up there with their highest achievements.

The Hampton album works surprisingly well, both Hampton and Getz combine remarkably in their performances totally absorbed in the music. 'Jumpin' At The Woodside' is a startling piece of musicianship, as is 'Cherokee'. The ballad melody that follows gives the opportunity for each artist to show their talents as soloists (Lou Levy piano and Shelly Manne drums).

The Jazz Giants session brings in Gerry Mulligan, Harry Edison (t) and Louis Bellson to augment Getz, Peterson and Brown. It was probably set up to follow the successful 1956 album with Lester Young and Teddy Wilson amongst the 'Giants'. This may not match it although it produces some marvellous collective music and solos. Mulligan seems responsible for sketching the arrangements and his baritone sax features on 'Chocolate Sunday' and the up-tempo 'Woudyn' You' where Peterson is on sparkling form. The ballad medley finds Getz performing an early version of 'It Never Entered My Mind' with a dazzling assortment of key-changes. Getz is also poignant on Strayhorn's 'Lush Life'.

An excellent budget collection of first class music by masters of their instruments. The remastering has produced a very good sound. Recommended.

The set with Lionel Hampton is recorded in 1955, and the two sets with The Oscar Peterson Trio and The Jazz Giants are from 1957, and they are all A 1.
Stan Getz with Oscar Peterson's Trio (piano, bass, and guitar) are a perfect match; a joy to listen to. On the Getz/Hamp set they are accompanied by 3 West Coast jazzmen with the cool sound of that particular jazzstyle, yet soften by Lionel Hamptons vibraphone, and on Jazz Giants Stan Getz is joined by Gerry Mulligan and Harry Edison with the Oscar Peterson Trio and Louis Bellson, and in spite of wonderful jazz on all sets this last record is in my opinion the best.
Just listen to "Chocolate Sundae", the pace, the swing, wonderful!

By R. Bawden jazz fan TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 27 Dec. 2014

This is a fantastic collection of music from three albums recorded between 1955 and 1957. The earliest album is "Hamp and Getz"; six tracks with the exuberant Lionel Hampton, Getz with Lou Levy (p), Leroy Vinnegar (b) and Shelley Manne (d). The second album is "Jazz Giants" from August '57 featuring five tracks with Getz, Harry Edison (t) and Gerry Mulligan (bari), Oscar Peterson (p), Herb Ellis (g), Ray Brown (b) and Louie Bellson (d). Finally the best album (also '57) "Stan Getz and Oscar Peterson Trio" altogether 11 tracks (including some previously unreleased material).
With the personnel outlined above how could this compilation fail? The featured musicians were all at the top of their game. I prefer Oscar Peterson as sideman to leader. Stan Getz must have been the master tenor saxophonist of all time, technically speaking with, it seems to me, greater ability than many of the stars including idols such as Hawkins, Young, Webster even Coltrane? However in jazz, technical ability is not always the main ingredient; emotion is a greater component. Here Getz may fall behind slightly, however he is a major player in jazz and he plays at his very best on these albums.
With excellent sound quality and useful accompanying booklet, this value for money release is an excellent purchase.

If you're not too familiar with the work of saxophonist Stan Getz, this offering from AVID Jazz is a great way to acquire a significant body of his work at very low cost. The package consists of three of his best albums:

1. Stan Getz & The Oscar Peterson Trio (from Getz's California period, recorded in 1957)

2. Hamp & Getz (with Lionel Hampton, recorded in 1955)

3. Jazz Giants (from 1958)

In addition, you get a few extra tracks of Getz and Peterson playing together and most of the original sleeve notes. Missing are examples of Getz's excursion into Brazilian `Bosa Nova' in the 1960s - some of his most memorable work - but you can pick that up elsewhere (the `Compact Jazz' series of Astrud Gilberto's sessions with Getz is good, and the `Getz/Gilberto' album from 1997 probably the best).

These three albums are claimed to be `re-mastered' from the original analogue tapes, and the result is fine sound with good tone and clarity. Getz's output varied a lot in style from the sublime to the fast and furious; he was a superb musician with a good `feel.' If you're interested in jazz but don't have any of his work in your collection, this package is gonna be about as good as it getz, and on value alone can be unconditionally recommended.

Format: Audio CD
This 2-CD set comprises three classic albums from the mid-fifties, namely Stan Getz & the Oscar Peterson Trio, Hamp & Getz, and Jazz Giants, plus four unissued tracks and an alternate take. All of which are available for less than the asking price of a reissue one of those albums. This is a great buy, and a superb compilation of West Coast jazz.
