Gerry Mulligan, Ben Webster - Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster mp3 album

Make no mistake about it, the swing and bop start right here on this legendary 1959 session between baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and tenor man Ben Webster. Produced by Norman Granz as an early Verve album, this Mobile Fidelity 24-karat gold-disc reissue is sonically worth the extra bread as it feels like you're right in the control room every note of the way. The opening track, Billy Strayhorn's "Chelsea Bridge" is lush and emotional and truly sets the tone for this album. With Jimmy Rowles on piano (his intro on "Sunday" sounds like a ragtimer like Willie.

Gerald Joseph Mulligan (April 6, 1927 – January 20, 1996) was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and arranger. Though Mulligan is primarily known as one of the leading jazz baritone saxophonists – playing the instrument with a light and airy tone in the era of cool jazz – he was also a significant arranger, working with Claude Thornhill, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, and others.

The 50 year old Webster’s tenor sax and 32 year old Mulligan’s baritone are as polished as polished could be. The result is the album Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster that is included in NPR’s Basic Jazz Record Library and has been called a classic album from two jazz giants. Track one side one is the fabulous Billy Stayhorn composition ‘Chelsea Bridge’
