AVID Jazz here presents four classic baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD.
A couple of “Quartets” and a couple of “Meetings” constitute this new release in AVID on going series of re-issued classic jazz albums. “Gerry Mulligan Meets Johnny Hodges”, “What Is There To Say?”, “Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster” and “Gerry Mulligan Quartet At Storyville” (currently only available as an expensive import!).
Here we find Mulligan in the company of Ben Webster on Tenor sax, recorded in 1959 followed a year later in 1960 by a meeting with Johnny Hodges in L.A. Both are casual and unrestrained affairs which have gone on to become jazz classics down the years. Our Quartet releases find Mulligan in the company of firstly at Storyville in 1956, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone, Bob Crow on bass and Dave Bailey on drums. Then in 1958/59 Gerry and his rhythm section is joined by Art Farmer on trumpet for “What Is There To Say?”.
All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest ever sound quality!
