Aside from the rather horrid Bevis & Butthead cartoon rendering on the album cover, this is a tasteful compilation of tenor saxophonist Stan Getz in his mellower mood. Seven of the tracks are ballads, two of those with a big band and strings, while ten are small-group sessions. Also included are three of his premier Brazilian numbers: "Bahia," "Corcovado," and "The Girl from Ipanema" with Astrud and João Gilberto. The warm sound of Getz is obviously prominent, even on the three more energetic swingers, including the bopping "Of Thee I Sing.
The Essential Stan Getz" is a collection of the very best and most charming recordings of Getz between 1952 and 1963 . Stan Getz was among the masters of the Tenor Saxophone. This particular compilation is from recordings he made on Verve records, and spans recording dates from early 1952 to late 1963. It includes two cuts, "The Girl from Ipanema" and "Corcovado" from the Getz/Gilberto session.
