Overview

As one of the most famous baritone sax players in jazz, Gerry Mulligan is an icon from the 1950s cool jazz era. Known for his light, airy tone, he was also an excellent composer, arranger, and bandleader and an important figure in the development of cool jazz. On this CD, The Art of Gerry Mulligan: The Final Recordings, Telarc Jazz has compiled selections from three of Mulligan's recordings for the label during those years: Paraiso-Jazz Brazil with Jane Duboc on vocals; Dream a Little Dream a quartet recording; and Dragonfly, also by Mulligan's quartet but featuring special guests guitarist John Scofield, saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr., and pianist Dave Grusin. Each of these creative periods produced an exceptional output of compositions including "O Bom Alvinho," "Song for Strayhorn," and the ever-popular "Dragonfly." While this compilation represents only the latter part of his great career from 1993-1995, it is an exceptional preservation of the cool jazz legacy of Gerry Mulligan.
