Saxophonist Stan Getz was born in Philadelphia on Feb. 2, 1927, and died on June 6, 1991. Known for lyrical melododic riffs, his 1962 album with guitarist Charlie Byrd, Jazz Samba, with the hit tune by Antonio Carlos Jobim, "Desafinado," and Getz/Gilberto, with vocals sung by Astrud Gilberto, "The Girl From Ipanema," made bossa nova a permanent part of the jazz repertoire.
