Stan Getz Plays is an album by American saxophonist Stan Getz recorded in 1952 and first released on the Norgran label in 1955. The album features tracks that were previously released on two 10-inch LPs on Clef Records (MGC 137 and MGC 143).

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars and stated “Tenor saxophonist Stan Getz is in excellent form playing with one of his finest groups … Although the music does not quite reach the excitement level of the Getz-Raney Storyville session, this music (particularly the ballads) really shows off the tenor’s appealing tone. “.
