The 1955-56 Gerry Mulligan Sextet was an outstanding ensemble on several levels. In Jon Eardley, Bob Brookmeyer and Zoot Sims, Mulligan found soloists with the same high degree of invention and melodic development that he possessed. The light buoyant swing of Peck Morrison and Dave Bailey without the weight of a chordal instrument was inspiring to the soloists and a joy for the listener. But the most compelling characteristic of this sextet was Mulligan’s ability to write brilliant arrangements for a small group that possessed the drive and intricacy of a big band.
As of today (4/21), we have officially met our goal. Thanks to everyone who contributed!!
Since the last fundraiser, I’ve gotten a number of requests to do another one. The interesting thing this time, however, was that people made non-classical suggestions as well. The two things that got the most requests were the recent DG111 6LP box, and “anything jazz” – specifically asking about Mosaic box sets. The most recent Mosaic release was the Gerry Mulligan Sextet box, so I thought that would be a great choice.
So without further adieu, I would like ask for your help to purchase and rip these two box sets and share them with all of you here on boxset.ru:
DG 111 – 6 Classic Recordings [6 LP]
Gerry Mulligan: The Emarcy Sextet Recordings [5 LP]
