My Shining Hour

Stan Getz and the Boston Pops Orchestra

The tenor plays a beautiful version
of “My Shining Hour”

Stan Getz (1927-91) always had a very attractive tone on the tenor in addition to being an adventurous yet melodic improviser.

Late in his career, Getz made an appearance on a televised concert with the Boston Pops Orchestra, directed by John Williams.

With the orchestra plus a fine rhythm section, Getz plays a swinging version of the early 1940s standard “My Shining Hour.”
