There's also a solo performance of "No More Blues" on Gary's "Alone" album. Donald Maggin's biography of Stan Getz is possibly the scariest book I've ever read. It's always mysterious how someone produces the kind of sublimely beautiful music that came out of Getz's horn; but knowing something about the man who produced it, it becomes unfathomable.

Tha name Joe Hunt jumped out at me from your post -- I saw and recorded him on two gigs with Joel Press, Michael Kanan, Pat O'Leary or Neal Miner -- in New York City, at the very end of June. Joe's still playing very musical and thoughtful drums: here he is in 2010!

Gary Burton forgot to mention, that after Astrud Gilberto left the Stan Getz Quartet her replacement was Brazilian singer, guitarist and Bossa Nova composer Carlos Lyra. Unfortunaly just one track with Lyra and the Getz Quartet exsits, from a live concert recording in Tokyo in 1965 (from a bootleg). Gary Burton once told me in an e-mail the following about recordings with Lyra:
I do recall a live recording session, or maybe it was in a studio, I'm not sure. Stan typically would record the group about once a year on his own, usually a live performance of some kind. He never could convince his label to release any of these efforts, and as the years passed, the tapes were discarded. After Stan and his wife parted ways, there was a search to see if any of the tapes from several recording projects could be found, but nothing turned up. I have always assumed that they were just thrown away at some point as the Getz's moved from house to house, etc.

If the tapes had ended up at the record label, they would have been released by now. But, since these were Stan's own attempts to make records, the tapes were only in his possession.

Best regards, Gary
