THE GROOVE YARD 166 – BLUES IN THE CLOSET

George Klein presents the 4th hour of an extended feature on tenor saxophonist Stan Getz, focusing once again on 1957-61 and featuring collaborations with Gerry Mulligan (on “Let’s Fall in Love” they switch horns: Getz plays baritone & Mulligan plays tenor) and J.J. Johnson at the Opera House in Chicago, sessions recorded in Europe, and the album entitled Focus, with string arrangements by Eddie Sauter.
