'The straightforward blowing side of Mulligan's persona came out in a series of quintets with one other veteran saxophonist. Both Gerry and Ben contribute new tunes, singably simple riffs designed just to get everyone off the ground.' (The Rough Guide To Jazz)

Gerry Mulligan: Mullenium (CD: Columbia)
An excellent expanded reissue of a 1977 LP that included then new material by a 1957 studio-only big band, featuring Zoot Sims, Lee Konitz, Bob Brookmeyer and Charlie Rouse. Mulligan's light toned, swinging scores are usefully contrasted with early work for the bands of Gene Krupa (when he was nineteen) and Elliot Lawrence.' (The Rough Guide To Jazz)

Gerry Mulligan & Paul Desmond Quartet: Blues In Time (CD: Fresh Sound)Gerry Mulligan & Paul Desmond Quartet: Blues In Time (CD: Fresh Sound)
Reissue of the inspired, rare 1957 ‘Blues in Time’ album - plus two tracks left off the original Verve LP. The famous ‘pianoless’ line-up was: Gerry Mulligan (bars), Paul Desmond (as), Joe Benjamin (b), and Dave Bailey (d). Five tracks were recorded at Capitol Studios, Hollywood on August 2nd 1957, and the other four on August 27th at Fine Sound Studio, New York.

Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond were two of the most mischievous men in jazz,kindred spirits united in their wit, sense of humour and approach to music. There was a genuine fellow feeling between them, an affinity that extended beyond playing in time or fitting lines together.

However, as might be expected of any group that featured Gerry with a piano-less rhythm section, this unit took on the informal personality of a Mulligan quartet; there were a couple of planned unison lines, but arrangement was kept to a minimum. And, as befits such a spectacularly happy union, it produced spontaneous creative combustion of the first order, full of excitement and felicitous surprises. (Discovery Records)

Gerry Mulligan: Moonlight In Vermont (CD: Candid)Gerry Mulligan: Moonlight In Vermont (CD: Candid)
Writing in Down Beat in 1952 Ralph Gleason opined “ The Gerry Mulligan Quartet is certainly the freshest,most interesting sound to come out of jazz in some time.” This was of course the now legendary group with Chet Baker,Bob Whitlock and Chico Hamilton which became a kingpin of the ”new West Coast jazz” movement. Since those early days Mulligan’s career took him far and wide. 1959 found Gerry touring Europe with probably the finest of the post-Baker Quartets and it is difficult to imagine a player more suited to act as a foil to Mulligan than the superb trumpeter Art Farmer- heard here along with Bill Crow and Dave Bailey providing just the perfect blend needed.

Gerry Mulligan: Meets Johnny Hodges (CD: Verve)Gerry Mulligan: Meets Johnny Hodges (CD: Verve)
Gerry Mulligan's studio adventures with his fellow saxophonists always produced memorable results, and his 1959 meeting with Johnny Hodges was one of the best. Together, the fleet-fingered baritonist and the sweet-toned altoist produced what Down Beat aptly called "casual, unostentatious music that belongs irrevocably to the past, present, and future of jazz."

Gerry Mulligan Quartet: Dream A Little Dream (CD: Telarc Jazz)Gerry Mulligan Quartet: Dream A Little Dream (CD: Telarc Jazz)
In the world of jazz, there's no baritone saxophonist who matches the lyricism and flowing deep tones of Gerry Mulligan. Here he reaches into his bag of lush jazz standards, sprinkles them with "cool" dust, and makes a strong statement for straight-ahead jazz, a la West Coast style. No bari player today is creating jazz with such matchless lyricism and flowing, deep tones as Mulligan. With an acoustic quartet, the jazzmaster fashions Dream a Little Dream into a genuinely elegant session of fourteen contemplative standards and original compositions. (Telarc Jazz)
