Album Review

A solid if not ideal introduction to Gerry Mulligan's recordings for Verve, this 36th volume in the label's Jazz Masters series compiles eleven tracks he cut between mid-1960 and late 1962 while at the helm of his Concert Jazz Band. Highlights include renditions of Django Reinhardt's "Manoir de Mes Reves," Johnny Mandel's "Barbara's Theme" and George Russell's "All About Rosie."

Customer Reviews

Jazz Masters 36: Gerry Mulligan

If you were forced to have only one song forever, Bluesport (best cut on the album, maybe Gerry's all time best) would be a top contender. Laced with variety, spunk and pizzaz. It is playful and flush with extreme virtuosity. Clark Terry's lyrical joust with Gerry is awesome. It is a pick me up that never lets me down. Mulligan's finest hour, or ten minutes at least. I have been listening to and loving this piece for 40 years and it definitely stands the test of time. I wore out my vinyl copy years ago. Thankfully iTunes had it. (and yes there is a fidelity loss on the cd version, but who cares)

Mulligan Big Band

This disc takes us back to the early 60's when Gerry Mulligan put together a Concert Band and held it together for a couple years, more than long enough to polish the tunes included here. The charts were fresh and interesting in a very cool west coast way: no hard bop for these guys. Mulligan and his baritone sax are featured, of course, but all the members were first rate. Bob Brookmeyer was there with his valve trombone and his musical humor, as was Clark Terry and his trumpet. Mulligan even picks up the clarinet on the last number. Fun. If you like Mulligan or if you like melodic, thoughtful big band, you will enjoy this. If you have ever been fortunate enough to have played in a jazz band, you simply must own this one. It will remind you of how much fun a good chart could give.
