Lee Konitz / Gerry Mulligan
LEE KONITZ PLAYS WITH THE GERRY MULLIGAN QUARTET (180G LP)
An audiophile Blue Note Tone Poet reissue - mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
Three giants of West Coast Jazz came together in this deeply swinging session recorded for the Pacific Jazz/World Pacific label in 1953. Alto saxophone master Lee Konitz joins with the great Gerry Mulligan on baritone saxophone and legendary trumpeter Chet Baker on a half-live, half-studio program of standards along with one Mulligan original. The group is supported by bassists Carson Smith and Joe Mondragon with Larry Bunker on drums for this spontaneous and inventive jazz treasure. [info sheet from distr.]
