Blue Skies by Stan Getz
Released: Jan 1982
Label: Concord Records
For some reason this achingly beautiful Getz album went unreleased until 1995. It stands up to his best ballad sessions and even the normally upbeat title track aches with melancholy. Getz was the most underrated of all jazz geniuses; unlike Coltrane (a big Stan fan) he made musical transcendence seem effortless instead of hard won.
