    Got you! Me too, he had the sweetest tone. Coltrane said of Getz, “let’s face it, if we could we’d all sound like him.”

    I always think of the really good and really successful albums SG made.

    In 1956 he kills it with JS on 'Moonlight in Vermont ',

    then six years later nails it again with CB on 'Jazz Samba' !!

    Not sure about exact sales, but each was #1, or close etc.

    Stan w/the legendary Rene Thomas and organist Eddie Louis.
    They did a tour in Europe during this time, Rene was getting some exposure overseas playing w some great American musicians at the time on both sides of the pond, Sonny Rollins picked him up and even cut a record w him. I think Rene was working in Canada at the time.

    I don't know. Will Shortz is still editing, AFAIK. I just finished* a book titled Ferocious Puzzles or somesuch and it was a beast. I do CWDs to offset some of the damage to my verbal skills due to a TIA many years ago. It finally dawned on me that while composing the puzzle itself is a considerable feat, it's the clues/hints/misdirections where the evil genius lies. I love 'em.

    * If by finished one means "filled in." Actually solving? Not quite so much.

    John Coltrane was quoted as saying, "We'd all sound like Getz, if we could", in the book Coltrane on Coltrane.

    Love SG! Probably my father's (who was also a tenor player) favorite player? When I was growing up, he'd always have SG playing (along with his other favorite saxophonists).

    This was his favorite tune:


    Miss you lots dad!
