But Beautiful
Stan Getz Lyrics

Love is funny or it's sad,
Or it's quiet or it's mad,
It's a good thing or it's bad,
But beautiful!

Beautiful to take a chance
And if you fall, you fall,
And I'm thinking I wouldn't mind at all.

Love is tearful or it's gay.
It's a problem or it's play,
It's a heartache either way,
But beautiful!

And I'm thinking if you were mine
I'd never let you go,
And that would be but beautiful I know.

Amazing Getz performance once again..... & Yes, Kenny Barron was brilliant.... In 92 I happen to meet Stan's son at an LA meeting kinda by accident 'Stan's son was talking about his dad who recently passed & I immediately knew who his dad was & befriended Stan's son & wasn't aware Stan had passed. "Small world as his dad, Stan Getz was a favorite of mine going back to my teens & we were able to get together a few times & talk jazz & discovered we both had several of the same jazz albums & favorites 'hope he's doing well have lost contact with him 'He's also a jazz musician.

Every tenor player with a day job that listens to this clip is like "yeah, I'm playing my sax toNIGHT!

I miss the unmistakable and instantly recognizable beautiful sound and playing of Stan Getz.


Kenny Barron is such an underrated pianist. Awesome as Stan's sideman. Sweet solo! Stan, wow, listen to that velvet tone...so melodic. One of his "powers" (imo) was how he was able to sing, on the sax, and his perfect note placement. He is one of my main men when it comes to ballads. Yasuhito Mori I have not heard much from, but I like his timbre. Ben Riley, imo, another underrated musician. He is never too busy, and does not drop any opportunity to be a firm support. Thanks!

It swings and swings and sounds and swings. Neither God nor the devil can do it better and the melody is pure love.
