Stan Getz 1961: Pure Gold

Stan Getz recorded two masterpieces in 1961. The orchestral work, Focus, is the better known of the two, and was the saxophonist’s personal favorite from his vast discography. The second, Stan Getz-Bob Brookmeyer ’61, reunited Getz with valve trombonist Brookmeyer and introduced his new rhythm section of Steve Kuhn, John Neves, and Roy Haynes.
