5.0 out of 5 stars "Jazz on a Summer's Afternoon" 2 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is like two sax shaped butterflies, one baritone, one tenor darting around one another. Together Mulligan and Getz make the most sublime combinations and riff off each other with a musical choreography that is dazzling. The recording itself is a wonder and there's an incredible intimacy to the way the instruments have been recorded which makes you feels as if the whole set's been performed live in your living room. It's definitely one of my favourite jazz recordings for the infectous way the musicians draw you in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great interplay between two saxophone giants 8 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I remember owning the original LP that was titled "Mulligan meets Getz meets Mulligan". I think that was the title on a blue album cover.
The idea of trading horns for the first few numbers was very novel and fun. After careful listening you'd be able to distinguish who was playing what horn from the stylistic approach of each artist.
The kickoff number of "Let's Fall in Love" is wonderful. The beautiful "A Ballad" showcases the soft and cool improvisational skills of Mulligan and Getz.
The two cuts that weren't included on the original album -First, "Scrapple From The Apple" demonstrated just how well these two "cool school" musicians could burn on an uptempo number. Second, "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" is an easy-going foot-tapper with Mulligan starting off with very creative lines. Getz lends his smooth, airy and controlled solo with absolute coolness. And let's not forget Lou Levy and Ray Brown's equally inventive solos.
One of my all-time favorites from both Mulligan and Getz. So my review may not sound as sophisticated as the others. Hey, I'm just a simple-minded reed player who's listened and played jazz for 35 years. I just love jazz. Buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Romulus, meet Remus 5 Jun 2002
By Brian Silverman - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Two of the best cool jazz men working together with more chemistry than the sum of the periodic table. Great tunes and absulutely masterful improvisational efforts with theme and variations, counterpoint and more cool than an arctic meat locker. The guys trade horns midway through the recording, and their innate musical brilliance and versatility defy description. On my deserted island must have short list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Delight 31 July 2006
By Jazzcat - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Jazz is our delight brother cats. Life is so boring sometimes that you and I, my jazz friends, deserve to take a pause and enjoy the marvel of music to lift us up. You can't find a more delightful listening experience than this encounter between Getz and Jeru. It is fantastic believe me. This record is something that when I turn back to it, it makes me discover again why I love jazz. It has been one of the first jazz albums I did buy, something like 15 years ago ... it's still refreshing after all these years. It is light, funny, swinging, splendid ... it is simply one of the best examples of Jazz you can find out there. Jazz the fifties way of course, not that thing that today some people call jazz that is unbelievably boring. This is Jazz. And you can't stop to stomp your feet. You have a fantastic rhythmn section, Stan Levey and Ray Brown, MEN, so the swing is garanteed =)))))). Lou Levey played the piano (one of the best in the west coast movement). Than you have a couple of the best soloists that EVER graced the history of Jazz music, Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan (THE man who plays the bari, nothing more to add here). The program begins with the splendid "Let's fall in love" and it's all there. They're all swingers except for the wonderful tune "A ballad" which is, of course, a ballad. You evena have a Charlie Parker number, Scrapple. The joy of swing, a music that these guys plays perfectly, light as butterflies, deep as oceans. THEY'RE TRUE MASTER!!! Every tune is a master interpretations. Than Stan and Jeru change horns and demonstrate to us (if necessary) how good thay could play with another type of instrument. It is simply a perfect album, jazzcats, if you don't own it... YOU SHOULD. YOU SHOULD.

4.0 out of 5 stars High energy romp 12 July 2002
By Jon Warshawsky - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Having listened to both the present Getz/Mulligan album and the more acclaimed Meets Ben Webster recording, I don't see that Getz/Mulligan album is any less worthy. If you enjoy uptempo saxophone, this album will become a favorite. Even the songs are well-chosen standards, with Mulligan's refreshingly slower 'A Ballad' a welcome selection after a set of faster numbers. 'Too Close For Comfort' and 'Let's Fall in Love' are simply superb, nicley improvised, upbeat without being frenetic or overwrought.
The reasons for the 4-star rating -- which should NOT dissuade you from Getz/Mulligan -- are that a couple of numbers (especially 'Anything Goes') seem uncomfortably fast, as though this was a duel instead of a duet, and secondly because there is a sense that these are two colossal talents who were unaccustomed to playing together: the chemistry isn't great, so that even casual listeners will notice the tension that comes with cutting off and overlaying notes. You want to listen to both, but not always at the same time.
Lou Levy's piano continues to be a pleasure in the cool jazz of that era. He has a background role here, but know that you're listening to a talent, even if piano is not the focus here.
Sound quality is good for a recording of this vintage -- remember that 'Hi-Fi' is relative, and 1957 stereo was still evolving. Still, it beats monophonic.
Recommended, even if it's not a pure 5-star classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close encounters of the best kind 22 Nov 2000
By William Faust - Published on
Format:Audio CD
While not the best collaboration from Norman Granz' 1950's pairings of giants from his Verve label stable (see Gerry Mulligan meets Ben Webster for that honor), this one shouldn't be overlooked and presents yet another chapter in both Mulligan's and Getz' storied careers. Cut in 1957 this session features the "two brothers" (well, OK maybe not....) dueling over 6 tunes from the original LP plus two bonus tracks. The session swings and the first class rhythm section of Levy, Levey and Brown keeps things fluid, but there's not a whole lot of chemistry between the two saxists. They more or lesst go through the motions buy hey, for these two "the motions" are still superb. Not the best, but well worth the price of admission.
