Overview

Widely respected and revered inside and out of jazz circles, Gerry Mulligan, whose 90th birthday fell on April 6th, retains a reputation as one of the foremost figures from the post-war West Coast scene. His quartets throughout the early 1950s produced some of the most important recordings of the cool jazz genre, and some of the very best of these were released during his tenure at Pacific Jazz records, between 1952 and 1959. This 4-CD collection of his output for the label includes some of the most important records in the development of West Coast jazz, a selection that has guided and informed this sub-genre since.
