(February 2, 1927 - June 6, 1991)


Stanley "Stan" Getz is another well know saxophonist and played with some of the biggest names in jazz. I found this quote from him on Wikipedia:

I never consciously tried to conceive of what my sound should be...I never tried to imitate anybody, but when you love somebody’s music, you’re influenced...I really don’t know how I developed my sound, but it comes from a combination of my musical conception and no doubt the basic shape of the oral cavity... ”

— Stan Getz

There is a great interview of him here.
