  • Gerry Mulligan

    Gerry Mulligan is one of the leading baritone saxophonists in jazz history. He is renowned for both his light airy tone, alto-like dexterity, and piano-less quartet of the ’50s, which featured trumpeter Chet Baker in its earliest incarnation. (Valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, trumpeter Jon Eardley, tenor Zoot Sims, and trumpeter Art Farmer would eventually join, as well.) He also composed many of his own songs. Yet, it was as an arranger that he was initially known, arranging for the likes of Miles Davis, Claude Thornhill, and Stan Kenton. A flexible soloist, Mulligan recorded extensively throughout the years, performing on albums by Thelonious Monk, Paul Desmond, Stan Getz, Ben Webster, and Johnny Hodges, and listening to those solos of his on vinyl is nothing short of mindblowing.
