Notes:

"The Complete Roost Recordings is a two-disc, 39-track set that contains all of the studio recordings Stan Getz made for the Roost Record label in the '50s. The set includes all of his officially released sessions as well as many alternate takes. Roost was the first label Getz recorded for as a leader, and what's surprising about these sessions is how mature he sounds here. He had already arrived at his full, rich tone and was able to improvise with skill and grace. That's what makes this set so rewarding -- it's not only historically important, but it offers a wealth of excellent music."
