Gerry Mulligan – The Original Quartet With Chet Baker

CD (Item 524195) Pacific Jazz, Early 50s — Condition: Used
2 CDs
$7.99 ...

CD

A massive 2CD set that collects together 42 early recordings by the legendary Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker – the complete work of that group for Pacific Jazz, apart from their pairing with Lee Konitz! The set is really overflowing with work, and includes both 10" and 12" LP takes of some tunes, plus a few other alternates, and all of the original material that was spread out over a number of hard-to-track down 10" LPs. Both Mulligan and Baker recorded together a number of times after this, in a "reunion" style that hearkened back to the fame of these sides – but the originals are still the best, and feature a magical pairing of two gentle jazz talents in a setting that's mostly piano-less – but which also features some occasional work from Jimmy Rowles, plus a bit of ivory from Gerry as well. Titles include "She Didn't Say Yes She Didn't Say No", "Bernie's Tune", "Soft Shoe", "Walkin Shoes", "Motel", "Cherry", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Swinghouse", "Five Brothers", "Tea For Two", and "Funhouse".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
