Mulligan, Gerry / The Concert Jazz Band - At The Village Vanguard (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 15-Verve 731458948827
“Gerry Mulligan was and is – because of his immortal recordings - a one-of-a-kind musician. Just try to hold a baritone saxophone, not even try to blow a tune in one, and you'll appreciate the effort that supposes playing one for an even short period of time. In this live recording you can hear the baritone saxophone the way this extraordinary virtuoso consistently made it sound: from sultry mellow to top-of-its-register staccatos; and always swinging!
Surrounded by master musicians like Clark Terry and other virtuosos on their own right, and recorded live at the superfamous Village Vanguard, this record is a must-have for anyone who considers him/herself a jazz fan.
The sound is perfect, the "atmosphere" fantastic, the performances unbeatable and...oh, those solos! Even when he plays piano in "Let My People Be" you can feel Mulligan was really at home and inspired by the sound of this band. I recommend this record heartily, without reservations!”-Juan Oliver Colom
