Product Description

Product Description

This previously unreleased live recording from 1993 brings together two legendary jazz musicians, the baritone saxophonist/composer Gerry Mulligan and pianist Dr. Billy Taylor. The two long time friends (on and off stage) came together for the first time ever to perform a series of concerts at Manchester Craftsmen's Guild. The result of those performances is Billy Taylor and Gerry Mulligan, Live at MCG. Their long time friendship can be heard throughout the album with each musician finishing each others phrases and laughing at each other's musical jokes. Their duet on "All The Things You Are" is a glowing example of their shared musical heritage and life-long bond. All of the songs are well-known classics, such as "Stompin' At The Savoy" "Body And Soul," and Ellington's "Come Sunday" and there are two original tunes, "Line for Lyons" by Gerry Mulligan and "Capricious" by Billy Taylor.

Personnel:
Billy Taylor - (piano), Gerry Mulligan - (baritone saxophone), Chip Jackson - (bass), Carl Allen - (drums)

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature Music 17 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
Beautiful, impeccable playing by two jazz masters. Recorded live before an audience at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild in Pittsburgh in 1993, pianist Billy Taylor and baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan (with Chip Jackson on bass and Carl Allen on drums) perform a program of chestnuts that show off the melodic and harmonic inventions of the group. Gorgeous ballad interpretations include DARN THAT DREAM, BODY AND SOUL, and especially COME SUNDAY, where there's no question we've been taken to church but where the sermon is uplifting, not damning. ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE pit Billy and Gerry in a friendly counterpoint battle from the start, and LINE FOR LYONS proves once again no matter how many times Mulligan plays the tune (and I wish I had a pound for every time) he finds something fresh and exciting to express in it. It's a totally enjoyable CD - definitely worth getting.

I like Gerry Mulligan but am a particular fan of (Dr) Billy Taylor and neither disappoint.

I strongly recommend this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mulligan swings with Taylor 13 Nov 2009
By Malc B.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nobody played Baritone sax quite like Gerry Mulligan.Here, he plays a set of standards with pianist Billy Taylor. Nicely swinging jazz from two of the best. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite 10 Mar 2008
By Howard Wexler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just absolutely beautiful work by the two of them. Excellent recording, Mulligan's sax sounds stunning. In some recording, Mulligan steamrolls his accompaniment, not here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understated elegance 9 April 2011
By Larry Boden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a live recording done in Pittsburgh, but the audio quality is first rate. Classic Mulligan, and surely one of the gems of his later career. This label is apparently gone, so this might soon be a hard to get item. An excellent purchase for anyone .
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful twosome 31 Jan 2013
By Bruce Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Billy Taylor and Gerry Mulligan play beautifully on this cd and I love it. I am biassed as I loved Mulligan and have collected as many of his cds as possible. I love the baritone sax and cannot be anything but biassed in my praise of his playing.
