Gerry Mulligan, Ben Webster, Ben Webster - The Complete Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster Sessions (1
There is a tradition in jazz of the "Meet" series, where two musicians, often of differing ages or styles, meet and hopefully produce something fresh and exciting (and the record company hopes, commercially successful, appealing to both sets of fans). Sometimes it works and sometimes it stinks worse than a four-month-old half-eaten egg. So here we have Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster: the king of cool jazz, and a baritone sax player meeting the older swing tenor sax man. The resulting sessions were, thankfully, far from resembling a decaying dairy product and see both men in top form. Mulliganmore… appears to have the greater attraction with Webster playing "cooler" than his norm; but that said Mulligan's compositions are obviously inspired from the swing era. It is that connection which allows both men to play off each other with equal excellence. Their cover of Billy Strayhorn's "Chelsea Bridge" and Mulligan's "Go Home" are especially brilliant. A must for both Webster and Mulligan fans. --Phil Brett
