102 The Complete Pacific Jazz and Capitol Recordings of the Original Gerry Mulligan Quartet and Tentette with Chet Baker (1989)

Gerry Mulligan

 Label:  Mosaic  (MD3-102) | Recording date: 1952-1953 | 3 CD
Out of Print


This 3-CD box set, as its title states, contains all of the Gerry Mulligan Quartet’s recordings for Pacific Jazz and Capitol, everything that classic group ever recorded other than the material issued by Prestige and a half record recorded for GNP Crescendo. Unfortunately, this is a limited-edition set that is now out of print but it is well worth bidding on in auctions, for not only does it have all of the Mulligan Quartet’s other recordings but also fifteen previously unissued performances, all of the sides on which altoist Lee Konitz sat in with the quartet and the eight recordings by the 1953 Gerry Mulligan Tentette. These highly influential performances set the standard for West Coast jazz, made trumpeter Chet Baker a star, and remain some of the high points of Gerry Mulligan’s very productive career.
