let the Verve empire begin... this is Stan Getz's "Interpretations by the Stan Getz Quintet #2" on Norgran Records MG N-1008.... "Interpretations by the Stan Getz Quintet" #1 was the first 12 " LP on Norgran, I believe and carried the catalog number MG N-1000..... This is classic Getz! My copy apparently was once owned by DC radio station WOOK one of the first DC black radio stations.. nice to see that either 1) Norgran got black radio stations samples or 2) WOOK was colorblind enough to give Getz a listen.... The cover speaks for itself and is one of the first I suppose in a long line of "cool jazz smokers" covers...
