Stan Getz at The Shrine is a live jazz album by American saxophonist Stan Getz, recorded in 1954. It was originally released in 1955 on Norgran Records (which would be absorbed by Verve Records in 1956) as a 2 LP set, then reissued on CD by Verve as MGV 8188-2. This was the first concert recording for Stan Getz.
Although they had not played together all that much in 1954 (Brookmeyer had left Getz's band earlier in the year to join the Gerry Mulligan Quartet), the strong musical communication between the two horns during this set is obvious. Eight of the ten selections are from a live concert (with pianist John Williams, bassist Bill Anthony, and drummer Art Mardigan) while the final two numbers (on what was originally a pair of LPs) were cut in the studio the following day with the same personnel except that Frank Isola was on drums

As Getz later said: "We seem to be on the same wave-length musically and personally. We have the same yearning for fresh, uncluttered, melodic improvisation. Those last four words pretty much sum up At The Shrine. It's Ellington (who appeared with his orchestra at the same gig) who is heard introducing the Getz quintet at the start of the album, referring to him as "a leading exponent of the cool school. That he certainly was, but as At The Shrine so vividly reminds us, Getz, like alto saxophonist Art Pepper, brought a degree of passionate engagement to his music that isn't stereotypically associated with cool or so-called West Coast jazz. None of the band members originated from the Coast, and the band itself was formed in New York.
