The Life and Music of Stan Getz with Don Aliquo
Tenor saxophonist Stan Getz had a long and successful career, from the 1950s until his death in 1991. He was noted for his warm sound and light touch, taking his inspiration from the style of Lester Young rather than the harder-edged tenor players of the day. Starting out in the Stan Kenton and Woody Herman bands, Getz soon established himself as a top-ranked soloist. In the 1960s, he was the most identifiable American exponent of the Bossa Nova, and in his later career, he produced a string of superb straight-ahead recordings. According to All About Jazz, he recorded over 150 albums over the course of four decades.
Don Aliquo is a familiar figure in Middle Tennessee’s jazz scene. A noted educator and longtime faculty member in MTSU’s Jazz Studies program, Don has been a frequent Jazz on the Move presenter.
