The Stanford Jazz Workshop’s formative years were blessed by the participation of Stan Getz, an undisputed giant of the tenor saxophone. Getz freely shared his knowledge and wisdom with the Workshop’s community and inspired them with his artistry. A true master of melody, he always played straight from the heart with feeling and spontaneity. As Stan once quipped when a student sought his advice on some esoteric matter of harmonic theory, “It’s the mood, not the mode.” From the stylish sensuality of his pioneering bossa nova recordings to the joyous intensity of his bebop playing, emotion, honesty, and personal expression were always at the forefront of his music. Bassist Larry Grenadier provides the direct connection to Stan@Stanford: he was a Stanford student during Getz’s Stanford years, and the two musicians got to know each other well and interact both on and off the bandstand. A star-studded lineup of Jazz Workshop faculty including guitarist Peter Bernstein, drummer Gregory Hutchinson, and many special guests will pay homage to Getz’s enduring legacy of creativity, individualism, and heartfelt communication.
