The Complete Roost Recordings (Box Set)
by Stan Getz
Released: Dec 1954
Label: Parlophone UK
This superb box set (brimming over with previously unreleased studio tracks, live cuts and famous guests) chronicles Getz's star-making solo sides from the early-1950s (which resulted in the achingly beautiful hit single, "Moonlight in Vermont"). This serves as a perfect portrait of Getz -- the tough, angel-faced NYC street kid with unearthly talent.
