Stan Getz

Stanley Gayetzky (February 2, 1927 in Philadelphia - June 6, 1991 in Malibu, California), usually known by his stage name Stan Getz, was an American jazz saxophone player. Known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone, Getz's prime influence was the wispy, mellow tone of his idol, Lester Young. In 1986, however, Getz said: "I never consciously tried to conceive of what my sound should be..." Getz played a Selmer Mark VI tenor saxophone
