CJB live perfection,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And The Concert Jazz Band Santa Monica 1960 (2CD) (Audio CD)
The Mulligan Concert Jazz Band must surely be one of Jazz's Seven Wonders - the near perfection of their live performance here at Santa Monica being another wondrous example of what they were capable of. These 2 CDs cover whatever was left out of the (now deleted) Mosaic Box Set and fills the gap admirably. The tightness of the arrangements and the standard of musicianship is an audible joy to behold. Was there ever a Band so near perfect in the presentation of their misic than this one ? Listen and be transported back to a time when Mulligan was king (or at least one of them). The CJB was short-lived and therefore under-recorded. Get this little gem while you can.
