If you are reading this, you're likely a Mulligan fan, if not a Concert Jazz Band fan. The "CJB" was a 13 piece piano-less big band - an outgrowth of Gerry's earlier tentet work. If you dig the CJB as much as I do, then this is a small price to pay for this previously unavailable, well-recorded early concert. But if you just like jazz, don't make this your only CJB album. "Live at The Village Vanguard" or "On Tour - Featuring Zoot Sims" are both more inspired performances. There's a new re-package out now (2008) called "Swiss Radio Days" which features inspired performances and adds Zoot Sims on some cuts. But Olympia does have wonderful music and I dig it! I just think Zoot Sims (who sat in here on tenor) may have been a bit under the weather. Zoot is usually the consummate swinger - an inate sense of rhythm. Sometimes here he seemed a bit ill at ease. Listen to him with the same band later from the On Tour album to see what I mean. Or listen to the Zoot Sims Pacific Jazz album "Choice", which features Mulligan and Bobby Brookmeyer and others from the CJB. Still this is probably a must-have for fans of the great Gerry Mulligan.
