NOBODY ELSE BUT ME
"The saxophone was as much a part of Stan Getz as his own voice," says writer and broadcaster Dave Gelly in this new account of the great jazz saxophonist. Stan Getz: Nobody Else But Me takes us on a voyage through the life and glorious music of Getz, a unique and highly personal artist who became one of the most successful musicians in the history of jazz despite a turbulent and often destructive private life. Based on Stan Getz: Nobody Else But Me published by Backbeat Books. Written and read by Dave Gelly
William Hogarth, engraver, painter, satirist, man of his time lies in his studio hovering in that territory between wakefulness and sleep on the last day of his life.

The stage production on which this recording is based was devised, written and performed by Timothy Ackroyd and Brian Sewell and directed by Peter O'Toole. Performed by Timothy Ackroyd with an introduction by Brian Sewell.
