200 Gram Double LP Pressed at Quality Record Pressings! Featuring Brazilian Female Vocalist Jane Duboc!
Gerry Mulligan was an American jazz saxophonist, clarinetist, composer, and arranger. Though Mulligan is primarily known as one of the leading baritone saxophonists in jazz history – playing the instrument with a light and airy tone in the era of cool jazz – he was also a notable arranger, working with Claude Thornhill, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, and others. Mulligan's pianoless quartet of the early 1950s with trumpeter Chet Baker is still regarded as one of the more important cool jazz groups. Mulligan was also a skilled pianist and played several other reed instruments.
"Although baritonist Gerry Mulligan is listed as the leader of this date, vocalist Jane Duboc is really the main star. The Brazilian-oriented set consists of eight Mulligan originals (including 'Tema Pra Jobim,' which finds him switching to piano, and 'Willow Tree') and three other numbers, with 'Wave' being the only standard... (Mulligan and Duboc) are joined by a couple of Brazilian rhythm sections. Pleasant music that mostly stands out as a historical curiosity in Gerry Mulligan's discography." -Scott Yanow, allmusic.com
