Velvet toned tenor saxophonist Stan Getz gigged all over northern Europe and Scandinavia from the summer of 1958 through the autumn of 1960. Jazz Hour presents a wonderful album of live recordings made between June 1958 and October 1959 in Frederiksstad, Norway, Copenhagen and Aabenraa, Denmark, and Paris France.
