THE SUNDAY CONCERT: Gerry Mulligan

THE SUNDAY CONCERT

This is the Gerry Mulligan Quartet playing live on TV´s JAZZ CASUAL on July 18th, 1962. Enjoy!

From Wikipedia: Gerald JosephGerryMulligan (April 6, 1927 – January 20, 1996) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and arranger.[1] Though Mulligan is primarily known as one of the leading baritone saxophonists in jazz history – playing the instrument with a light and airy tone in the era of cool jazz – he was also a notable arranger, working with Claude Thornhill, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, and others. Mulligan’s pianoless quartet of the early 1950s with trumpeter Chet Baker is still regarded as one of the more important cool jazz groups. Mulligan was also a skilled pianist and played several other reed instruments.

Until next time.
