Imported from Europe is an album by saxophonist Stan Getz which was released on the Verve label in 1959.[1][2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Jason Ankeny stated "Imported from Europe channels the frosty ambience of its geographic origins to create one of Getz's most evocative efforts -- a decisively modern and cerebral session, it's nevertheless humanized by the warm, rich tone of Getz's tenor sax".[3]
