JSP Records are the best label overall I've encountered who work in the field of releasing CDs of old jazz and blues recordings. JSP's releases typically undergo extensive (and very expensive) careful and tasteful manual cleanup, and they have become rightly renowned for the highest possible sound quality considering the source material. These releases all come packaged in full jewel cases (no little paper sleeves here) and have full personnel and reasonable liner notes. Highly recommended.

This has some of the earliest (and for me, as a confirmed bebopper, some of the very best) work by this very famous, very popular tenor saxist. I have an extensive collection of early Getz and even I was missing stuff that's on this set!

"... an excellent overview of the early small group recordings of Stan Getz. The disks are well re-mastered, as one would expect with the careful restoration practices used by JSP. By cut 16 of the first disc in this set, "Stan Gets Along," he shows that he is already a master of the tenor sax and is well on his way to developing the distinctive and lyrical musical voice that earned him the nickname "the Sound." This track also coincides with the first session in this set recorded on magnetic tape rather than the electronic recording technology of the age of 78's when sound engineers were still literally cutting records directly onto wax or metal master discs. The huge advance in recording technology brought by tape-recording, and the remarkably fast development of Stan Getz's own trademark style, which is instantly recognizable, intersect at "Stan Getz Along." The quality of both the sound and the music itself maintains that high standard for the rest of the box."-Gregory Wasson
