AllMusic Review by

This four-disc, 88-track box set combines Proper's four earlier single-disc releases of vintage Stan Getz material from the 1940s: Long Island Sound, Dear Old Stockholm, Swinging at Storyville and Moonlight in Vermont. Dubbed "The Sound" for his ability to maintain his elegant tone on the sax at any speed, Getz had remarkable consistency as a player throughout his long career, and when his horn enters the arrangements on these sides, it is instantly recognizable.
