Stan Getz

Seeing as we're in a poetic vein...
Four siblings blowing a horn,
Al, Herbie, Zoot and Stan.
Cool for the time of year
That Early Autumn.
Those Crazy Chords,
That Long Island Sound,
A girl saying 'yes'
A true love found.
Focus and Sweet Rain
Eddie Sauter, his Gil Evans
Beauty spawned within the pain
Of fixes and diminished sevenths.
Don't Blame it on the Bossa Nova
Desifinado put his kids through college.
Blame it on his youth
Presifinado without the knowledge.
They're all gone now - goodbye
Al, Herbie, Zoot and Stan.
Trading fours up in the sky
Ne'er to see their likes again.
Lance.
