This review is from: Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Gerry Mulligan (Audio CD)
Real Gone Jazz are fast expanding their 'back-catalogue' re-issue programme (the insert with this 4-CD Set lists scores of artists currently covered). The Gerry Mulligan Classics included here are all from the period 1953 to 1959 when the baritone saxist was in "small group" mode in all cases with an "A N Other" guest. These guests are: Lee Konitz, Bob Brookmeyer, Thelonious Monk, Chet Baker, Stan Getz, Art Farmer, Ben Webster and Johnny Hodges. Quite naturally the perfomances vary a little in quality but overall this set represents very good value and in my view is historically quite important.
