LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Finally available again on vinyl. Mulligan's long out-of-print 1962 Verve LP. Legendary baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan formed his concert jazz band--a 13-piece piano-less big band featuring five reeds, six horns and a two-piece rhythm section--in the spring of 1960. The West Coast-based band played widely around the US and by autumn of that year was touring Europe (where Mulligan was already well regarded) to enthusiastic audiences. Recorded in Santa Monica, Milan and Berlin in autumn of 1960, and featuring some amazing solos by tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims, these 9 mostly original Mulligan compositions, also feature the bonus tracks 'As Catch Can' and 'Young Blood', not found on the original LP."
