Stan Getz became known as "The Sound" because he had one of the most beautiful tenor saxophone tones ever heard. Throughout his career, which spanned six decades, Stan Getz recorded as a leader for many labels including MGM, Victor, Columbia, and A&M (not to mention his sessions with Lionel Hampton, Dizzy Gillespie, and Gerry Mulligan) and he has been featured on an album almost every year since 1946.
Richie Cole formed his own band "Alto Madness" following stints with Buddy Rich's Big Band and Lionel Hampton, and having enjoyed immense commercial success as Musical Director for Manhattan Transfer during their "gold record" years. His idea being essentially that any tune, no matter how unlikely it's source could be turned into exuberant bop.
