Stan Getz and the Cool Sounds (Verve MGV 8200)
Composed by Bob Brookmeyer.
Recorded: New York, May 16, 1953
Rating: 90/100 (learn more)
This early 1950s track by the Stan Getz Quintet not only features the agile swinging of one of the most popular tenorists of the day, but also spotlights the gritty valve trombone of Bob Brookmeyer and the swinging, percussive piano of John Williams. The way Getz develops the riff he plays behind Brookmeyer into the leading phrase of his own chorus is simply brilliant.
