Gerry Mulligan - Pleyel Concert v1&2 (1954) (eac-log-cover)

Gerry Mulligan - Pleyel Concert v1&2 (1954)
jazz | 2cd | eac-flac-cue-log-cover | 630MB
During a 1954 trip to Europe Gerry Mulligan played several concerts in Paris at the Salle Pleyel to enthusiastic crowds, excerpts from which are heard on this CD and a second volume, issued separately. The baritone saxophonist is joined by one of his most stimulating musical partners, valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer; the quartet's rhythm section includes bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Frank Isola (who sticks to brushes). Mulligan does his best to introduce most of the tunes in halting French to the appreciation of the audience. Mulligan and Brookmeyer work magic together as they alternate between taking the lead and providing backgrounds for one another, while also engaging in some terrific counterpoint. The set includes standards, classic jazz tunes and Mulligan's originals, all of which delight the audience. It is almost impossible to name all of the highlights within this disc, though "Bernie's Tune" (with a playful detour into a circus theme), Mulligan's loping "Walkin' Shoes" and cool "Soft Shoe" as well as "My Funny Valentine," which rivals his famous recording with trumpeter Chet Baker. This CD and its companion volume should be considered among Gerry Mulligan's most essential recordings.

Por fin!, hace casi 3 años que estoy tratando de conseguir el volumen 2, Sony lo iba a editar en Argentina pero discontinuó todo el proyecto y no se consigue en ningún lado. Por suerte gracias a Uds. ya lo tengo y me quedo tranquilo, es muy lindo, ya tenía el volumen 1. Recomiendo esta edición doble.

I'm frustrated by file hosts and I'm sure that you are also. FileFactory doesn't have these files anymore. Is it possible to load them again?

I'm also trying to complete Gerry Mulligan Mosaic Select #21. It looks like there were three pairs of files and only the 2nd part is listed for each pair. I'm not sure. I'll add another comment when those downloads complete.
