Gerry Mulligan Sextet

Recorded live at Liederhalle Stuttgart, November 22, 1977

Gerry Mulligan (bs, ss), Dave Samuels (vib), Thomas Fay (p), Mike Santiago (g), George Duvivier (b), Bobby Rosengarden (dr)

The youngest of four brothers, New Yorker Gerald Joseph "Gerry" Mulligan spent his teenage years in different parts of the United States, learning in succession to play piano, clarinet, alto, tenor and fi nally baritone sax. Together with Gil Evans and Miles Davis, the 20-year-old conceived the revolutionary nonet music for Birth of the Cool. The gangly sandy-haired musician with the big Conn baritone made his recording debut in 1951, before moving to Los Angeles as arranger for the Stan Kenton Big Band ...

Mulligan presented his handpicked sextet at the Liederhalle, where the opening number For An Unfi nished Woman showed that his approach, far from being tinged with nostalgia, remained highly contemporary. Two of his most frequently played melodies, Line for Lyons and My Funny Valentine, will be instantly recognisable - perhaps best known to Mulligan fans from his "piano-less" quartet with Chet Baker, for which "Valentine" became something of a signature tune.

Despite outward changes - including in the music - the Stuttgart concert shows that the ever self-critical jazzman never let his identity slip. It was evident in his choice of players: rising stars such as vibraphonist Dave Samuels or guitarist Mike Santiago proved they could harmonise with experienced greats such as bassist George Duvivier as if they had been doing it all their lives. Like Ellington, Gerry Mulligan always preferred his jazz "in a state of becoming".
