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.
