    I have been listening to some of Ben Webster. He is very good also. I’ll have to check out Gerry Mulligan.

    Thanks!

    Mulligan is a bari player. check out his octet stuff. he usually doesn’t use a piano player in these and writes for a handful of horns, like 3 saxes and a trumpet or bone. this set up has a very cool sound and leaves it more open for the horns…very tasty and interesting stuff from him.

    Check out King of the Tenors and Soulville by Ben Webster. Those are my two favorite albums of his. Also take a look at Coleman Hawkins Meets Ben Webster, where the two play with the Oscar Peterson Trio. They’re all fantastic albums, and they’re all on YouTube!

    Spent the day listening to Gerry Mulligan. Thanks Johnny! There is so much good music of his. I haven’t paid much attention to the baritone saxophone but he sure can play. He has an album with Ben Webster also plus one with Stan Getz. Liked a lot of the piano less music with Chet Baker also. All good stuff!
