Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster was just one of many "meets" albums that Gerry
Mulligan appeared on during the period when this classic was recorded — Nov. 3
and Dec. 2, 1959, in Los Angeles. Mulligan and Pepper Adams were the baritone
saxophonists during the golden age of modern jazz, both masters of the unwieldy
and deep-toned instrument.
History was made here, as was a classic record for the ages. Now, hear Gerry
Mulligan Meets Ben Webster in all its sonic glory, courtesy of Analogue
Productions and Quality Record Pressings! Mastered and cut to lacquer by Ryan
K. Smith at Sterling Sound, working from the original analog tapes, this
33 1/3 edition sounds spectacular, pressed on super-silent 200-gram vinyl by
Gary Salstrom and his crew at Quality Record Pressings. Nothing but the best
packaging is allowed here either — you'll get a handsome heavyweight tip-on
jacket from Stoughton Printing.
Mulligan was an innovator of the west coast cool jazz style who flourished
playing with all manner of jazz musicians. The tunes he and Webster recorded are
smooth, lush and emotional, driven along by a rhythm section that swings with
just the right amount of bop. The result is an album that's included among NPR's
"Basic Jazz Record Library."
Let this silky and supple set make its presence known — order your copy of Gerry
Mulligan Meets Ben Webster today, and prepare to be enveloped by the sound.
