This is a rather relaxed recording featuring baritonist Gerry Mulligan and some of his top alumni (trumpeter Art Farmer, trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bill Crow, and drummer Dave Bailey) exploring three of his own songs (including "Festive Minor"), Chopin's Prelude in E minor, "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," and "Morning of the Carnival" (from Black Orpheus). The emphasis is on ballads and nothing too innovative occurs, but the results are pleasing and laid-back.
How does a 1963 classic not have any comments in 2014. I gusee the kids of iTunes are to enthralled with their 'excplicit language' low-quality MP3's to notice such a refined, eloquent, historic, artistic release such as Jerry, Art, Bob, Jim, Bill & Dave's 'NIGHT LIGHTS.' Regardless, I think anyone who know's great music, will appreciate this album, in it's entrity, for an eternity. Thanks for sharing it, ITunes.
