Lee Konitz Plays With The Gerry Mulligan Quartet

LP (Item 54880) World Pacific, 1953 — Condition: Good
Also available
Lee Konitz & Gerry Mulligan — Lee Konitz Plays With The Gerry Mulligan Quartet (180 gram pressing) ... LP 31.99
A set that's noteworthy not just for the presence of alto saxophonist Lee Konitz, and for the leadership of baritonist Gerry Mulligan – but a record that also features the great Chet Baker on trumpet, working here as part of a trio of musicians who were really helping transform the sound of jazz in the early 50s! And maybe most noteworthy in the set is the lack of any piano at all – a strategy of Mulligan's at the time, but used in a way that also echoes some of Lee's sublime quartet sessions of the mid 50s too – and a nice setting for Chet, as he has plenty of space to open up and craft those magical notes of his youth! The rest of the group features Larry Bunker on drums, and either Carson Smith or Joe Mondragon on bass – and material was recorded partly live, and partly in the studio – with titles that include "Broadway", "Sextet", "Almost Like Being In Love", "Too Marvelous For Words", "Lover Man", "I'll Remember April", and "All The Things You Are".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono blue label World Pacific pressing with deep groove. Vinyl plays with some crackles and tics. Cover has some wear and aging, aged clear tape holding the top seam, some tape remnants at the spine, and heavy wear and splitting in the bottom seam.)

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Classic small combo organ grooves from Billy Larkin and his mighty Delegates!
