Stan Getz made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1949 as part of a superstar bill that included the Woody Herman Orchestra, Nat "King" Cole, and Harry Belafonte. (Getz played in the saxophone section of the band, often referred to as Woody Herman's Second Herd.) He was already a Carnegie Hall regular when he joined forces with Brazilian guitarist and whispering vocalist João Gilberto for the live followup to their groundbreaking Getz/Gilberto album released just seven months before their October 1964 concert. Gilberto had made his debut two years previously as part of the now famous Bossa Nova at Carnegie Hall concert—in which Getz also starred—that sparked the explosion of bossa nova in the US.
Getz—who soon left bossa nova behind—would go on to perform at the Hall more than 20 times throughout the remainder of his life. His final performance took place in June 1990, the year before his death from cancer in 1991. There was a 14-year gap between the 1964 concert with Getz and Gilberto's next concert at the Hall. Now in his early 80s, Gilberto has performed regularly at the Hall since, with his most recent appearance being in 2008
