Baritonist Gerry Mulligan had at the time of this recording been a jazz giant for 45 years. His slightly bubbly baritone sound has always been distinctive and he never had difficulty jamming with anyone. In the 1990s Mulligan's regular trio has been comprised of pianist Ted Rosenthal, bassist Dean Johnson and drummer Ron Vincent. The sidemen work together very well on this quartet date Bill Mays fills in for Rosenthal on two songs and form a solid foundation for Mulligan to float over. The baritonist performs a variety of superior standards such as "Home," "They Say It's Wonderful," and "My Shining Hour," revives "My Funny Valentine"; he also revisits a few of his originals...

This is a fine example of Gerry Mulligan's playing.

    Jeru - The Bari Sax Genius in Old, But Golden Age

    Until recently, I shied away from buying the music of my jazz heroes recorded in their old age. Well, there was no reason to avoid Mulligan near the end. He was so much better here than on the 1949 "Birth Of The Cool" album, for instance. I guess an extra 45 years of practice were worth it! I found his sidemen to be quite accomplished here as well and the tunes to be better fleshed out melodically than many jazz recordings. This is actually a must-have for Mulligan fans - and not a bad sampling of what Gerry was like in a small group for casual fans. But be sure to check out other small group recordings where Gerry has another horn man to interact with: Quartets with Chet Baker or Art Farmer or any of the Sextet offerings are good - as is the quartet pairing with Paul Desmond now available.
