PS: Stan's book about his time at Warners', EXPLODING, is one of the best reads of all time.

It's available at reasonable prices again (they shot up to $300 a copy when Stan died):

My favorite line from the Sinatra/Jobim notes has always been this one:
Mine:

You feel for anybody who will blow it on the next take. It begins. The long, long. About a minute and a half in, then the trombonist braaacks a note. Braaack. That obvious. He can’t look over at some other trombonist; he’s the only trombonist. So he sits there, a blutch-colored felt hat sagged across the bell of his horn, hung there to keep it Soft. Poor Trombone Player knows: his music said B and it came out F and Jesus was it wrong.
