The Steamer is an album by saxophonist Stan Getz and recorded in 1956 and first released on the Verve label.[1][2]


The Allmusic review awarded the album 4 stars stating "It doesn't happen too often, but there are times when the title of a jazz album and the material within interface perfectly. Hence The Steamer, where Stan Getz joined forces with a super West Coast-based rhythm section to produce some truly steaming music". [3]
