Album Review

Stan Getz was well-prepared for the demanding task of soloing atop expansive movie soundtrack charts. In addition to dealing with all sorts of band settings and stylistic variations just as a jazz player, Getz had managed to fully explore the bossa nova world and cut several sides with string accompaniment. His sensitive tenor work always seemed flush with the temperament of the myriad combos he worked with and was especially impressive on Focus, the landmark 1961 strings date he cut with arranger Eddie Sauter. Four years later, these two would team up for the 1965 soundtrack to Arthur Penn's film Mickey One. Penn's existential noir thriller, informed by a dose of French new wave elements, proved to be the perfect musical platform for both Getz and Sauter.

Getz had the opportunity to play in a variety of major swing big bands while a teenager due to the World War II draft. He was with Jack Teagarden (1943) when he was just 16, followed by stints with Stan Kenton (1944-1945), Jimmy...
