The most liquid tenor saxophone tone in jazz history belongs incontestably to Stan Getz, for decades regarded as a paramount exponent of his instrument by musicians, critics, and jazz adherents. He's largely responsible for introducing bossa nova to the American household and becoming a celebrity for the non-jazz audience in the process. Part of the vinyl Verve collections, The Stan Getz Bossa Nova Years 5LP box set gathers a selection of Getz's best-loved albums from his bossa nova era on 180g vinyl in sleeves that replicate the original artwork. Includes the definitive releases Jazz Samba (1962), Big Band Bossa Nova (1962), Jazz Samba Encore! (1963), Getz/Gilberto (1963) and Getz/Almeida (1963).
