Stan Getz

Beginnings...

Stan Getz was born at St. Vincent's Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Feb. 2, 1927. He had one brother, Robert, who was born on October 30, 1932. His parents had come from the Kiev area in the Ukraine in 1903, tired and fearful of the Pogroms.

They lived first on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and then moved up to the East Bronx.
