Starting in the late ’50s, Gerry Mulligan recorded a series of encounters with fellow saxophonists that included such immortals as Stan Getz, Paul Desmond, Johnny Hodges and Ben Webster. In 1986 he resumed the practice for this one date on which his baritone is matched with the tenor of the young great Scott Hamilton. The music, which includes warm ballads and fairly hot romps (five of the seven songs are Mulligan originals), consistently swing and are quite enjoyable.

That night Mitchell returned to Burnside’s place with a case of beer and some whiskey. Continue reading “R.L. Burnside – First Recordings (2003) {2004, MFSL Remastered, CD-Layer + Hi-Res SACD Rip}”
