Barrie, Ontario’s Premier Big Band



"You can read all the textbooks and listen to all the records, but you have to play with musicians that are better than you."

- Stan Getz




Stan Getz was an American jazz saxophonist. Playing primarily the tenor saxophone, Getz was known as "The Sound" because of his warm, lyrical tone, his prime influence being the wispy, mellow timbre of his idol, Lester Young.
