Gery Mulligan and Chet Baker had recorded their quartet material with considerable impact on 1952/3 for Pacific Jazz. They had become established as the house band at 'The Haig' with an 85 capacity audience in Los Angeles. It is now famously associated with the hotel across the road 'The Ambassador' where Bobby Kennedy was assassinated and where Richard Nixon made his famous 'Checkers' speech'. With growing confidence, Mulligan invited Lee Konitz to the club to sit in. Having been somewhat restricted by his current employment with Stan Kenton, Konitz springs into life. Konitz takes most of the solos. He is in irrepressible form taking center stage. 'Lover Man, 'Too marvellous for Words' and particularly 'I'll Remember April' find his interpretations and improvisations steaming sweetly. Baker and Mulligan add to Konitz's blitz but it the altoist who dominates. 'These Foolish Things' shows that Konitz has developed his own style (Parker was still everpresent at this time). 'I Can't Believe' and the two 'Lady Be Good ' tracks were recorded at Phil Turetsky's house in L.A. Konitz's solos are majestic and authoritative throughout. Rhythm section excellent. Baker and Mulligan's inputs are assured but take a bow to Konitz. Wonderful music.

If you enjoy the sound of cool swinging easy-going jazz, then this intimate little live recording ‘Konitz meets …’ from 1953 should be in your collection. The three principles Lee Konitz, Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker mingle so effortlessly together that it a shock to remember that this was a one-off recording event. Lee Konitz with his warm fluid tones on alto sax gets the majority of the solo space but it is clear that he energises Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax) and particularly Chet Baker(trumpet) on tracks like ‘lady Be Good’. So that while there is no sense of note spinning or musical hyperventilation there is a degree of healthy completion going on here.

Sound quality is good without being spectacular. The real focus though is on the consistently excellent playing of the group and their inspired choice of jazz standards. No duff tracks, it’s all killer as they say, and definitely no filler. Try the jaunty ‘I’ll Remember April’ or the lovely ‘These Foolish Thing’s’ as sample tracks, and find yourself enchanted! Recommended.

These three excellent sessions were recorded live at The Haig, Los Angeles(tracks 1-6); at an unknown studio(tracks 7-9) and at Phil Turetsky's home studio(tracks 10-12) during late January, 1953.
Alto saxophonist Lee Konitz is on inspired form sounding fluent and animated in the company of Gerry Mulligan(baritone sax); Chet Baker(trumpet); Carson Smith or Joe Mondragon(bass) & Larry Bunker(drums).
The group perform mostly standards and the highlights are 'Too Marvelous For Words', 'Lover Man' and 'I'll Remember April'.
'Konitz Meets Mulligan' is an overlooked Cool jazz classic and a must for fans of Lee Konitz or the Gerry Mulligan Quartet.

Hadn't heard this music for round about half a century. Cool Jazz at its best. Well it was called modern Jazz in its day but believe me its as fresh and new as ever. Who ever borrowed my original LP and never gave it back: you're forgiven it's a joy to hear it again without the scratches.

Finding this "modern" life is making you feel a bit frayed at the edges. Try the past, present and the future all at once with a new perspective that you'll just love.
