Description

This CD charts the early career of jazz giant Gerry Mulligan, from his days as a struggling hot-headed & distinctive voice in New York's musical community to his popular success with his own quartet, which was formed in Los Angeles with Chet Baker on trumpet. This group not only secured both Mulligan & Baker's future but made the baritone Saxophonist the most prominent & respected figure upon his instrument in the jazz world. Included are many of Mulligan's most famous compositions such as 'Walkin' Shoes', 'Line for Lyons' and 'Bark for Barksdale' as well as the Quartet's two big hits 'Bernies Tune' and the version of Rogers & Hart's 'My Funny Valentine' that established Baker as one of the jazz world's most lyrical improvisers. Compiled & Annotated by Simon Spillett, with full discography included in an informative 12 page booklet.
