Stan Getz and his mellow saxophone

Jazz musician Stan Getz poses with his saxophone in an undated publicity shot. Stan Getz was born in 1927, so one might guess that this photo was taken circa 1960, when he would have been about 33. Getz was known for his uniquely warm, mellow, Getz-y tone on the tenor and baritone saxophone.
