These three sessions, cut within a period of ten months in 1949-50, established Stan Getz as a style-setter on the tenor saxophone and, principally on the strength of his ballad interpretations, as a popular jazz artist.
His time with the Woody Herman band in the late Forties had thrust Getz into the jazz public's ear, particularly his solo on "Early Autumn," "Long Island Sound," based on "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart," and "Mar-cia," his treatment of "When Your Lover Has Gone," reinforced his rise to prominence.
This is Getz at the height of his "cool" period, predating the West Coast movement by a couple of years. The superb solos and sensitive accompaniment by pianist Al Haig are added attractions.

with Al Haig, Gene Ramey, Tony Aless, Tommy Potter, Stan Levey, Roy Haynes, Don Lamond, Percy Heath
