Description
Written in 1955 by the great baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan, these 12 arrangements for concert jazz band include seven originals (among them the lyrical "Elegy for Two Clarinets"), as well as "Bye Bye Blackbird," "Strike Up the Band," "But Not for Me," "My Silent Love," and "Mr. President" (a scoring of Lester Young's solo from his 1939 recording with Count Basie). Originating in Philadelphia, Elliot Lawrence's big band was nationally known in the late 1940s and 50s. They interpret the Mulligan scores with style and bite, giving ample solo space to Al Cohn's tenor saxophone, Eddie Bert's trombone, Hal McKusick's alto sax, and the trumpets of Nick Travis and Dick Sherman.

"Mulligan's scores are marked by warmth and taste…. The section work is wonderfully firm and precise and swings crisply…. Strongly recommended."—Nat Hentoff, Down Beat

"Expertly played; outstanding solos abound."—International Association of Jazz Record Collectors
