Bob Kenselaar's Jazz in the Aquarian Age column continues at AAJ with an unearthed 1979 interview with tenor saxophonist Stan Getz.

“The music that Stan Getz made over the years was consistently moving and powerful," says Kenselaar, in his introduction to this interview, originally published in The Aquarian Weekly. “But he was probably putting me on a little when he said he was going to 'blow the walls down' in New York, for a series of shows. When someone gives you a headline like that, though, you go with it. He was a little more straightforward later in the interview when he said, 'I'm a thoughtful player. I don't believe in blasting music.'"

Read Getz's thoughts about then-recent recordings like The Peacocks (Columbia, 1975), tape delays, bossa nova...and a very personal encounter with one of the saxophonist's biggest heroes, Lester Young
