Being a big fan of Mulligan's later pianoless recordings with Paul Desmond, and Art Farmer, I'm glad to own this excellent box set of early 50s recordings. The set includes a 46 page booklet, and the sound is far from objectionable unless you are a nitpicking audiophile. The session notwithstanding. To think I obtained all of this superb music in one box for under 15 dollars is mindblowing! I obviously recommend it wholeheartedly. Sonicly great considering the recording date.
Great martini CD. One person found this helpful. Format: Vinyl. Prior to this album from , Gerry Mulligan quartets throughout the s seldom performed using a traditional rhythm section that included piano.
Mulligan also tended not to perform very many ballads, though it would be misleading to have you believe he had never played in that format previously. In Mulligan's regular quartet Bob Brookmeyer, his trombonist, would occasionally play piano on a track or two.
This proved to be the exception rather than the rule. Bailey was Mulligan's drummer for a very long time in his regular quartet, and Tommy Flanagan was a personal friend of Mulligan who was well respected as an accomplished pianist. Ben Tucker was a solid bassist who was constantly finding work in the studios of fellow musicians, and Alec Dorsey was there to provide an element that was gaining popularity at the time with his conga drums.
The creative compatibility of all players on this session becomes apparent as the cool relaxed sound of each element hits the listeners' ears. This is what jazz was, could be, should be, and occasionally still is. You cannot go wrong with this great album with great sound clarity by such great artists. Tracks Are: 1. Capricious 2.
