"The saxophone was as much a part of Stan Getz as his own voice," writes author Dave Gelly in this new examination of the music of the great jazz saxophonist. Stan Getz - Nobody Else But Me takes us on a voyage through the life and glorious music of Getz, a unique and highly personal artist who became one of the most acclaimed and commercially successful musicians in the history of jazz, despite a turbulent and often destructive private life. He first found fame in Woody Herman's "Four Brothers" saxophone section in the 1940s. Getz then embraced breakneck bop in the 1950s, and enjoyed unprecedented global fame in the 1960s with 'The Girl From Ipanema' and Jazz Samba. At the heart of it all was an absolute mastery of his instrument, a musical precision, a lightness of touch - and, of course, that legendary, breathlessly mellifluous tone.
