Gerry Mulligan — California Concerts ... LP 9.99

Volume one of a classic live album by Gerry – expanded here to include the entire 10 tracks from a November 1954 concert recorded in Stockton, CA. The group includes Chico Hamilton, Red Mitchell, and Jon Eardley – and Gerry even plays a bit on the piano, despite its absence from his other work. This version is expanded a lot from the original album, with titles that include "Soft Shoe", "Ontet", "A Bark For Barksdale", "Blues For Tiny", "Little Girl Blue", "Blues Going Up", and "Darn That Dream".  © 1996-2020, 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 have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

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 list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Gerry Mulligan

Mulligan Plays Mulligan
Prestige (Japan), 1951. Used
Incredible work from Gerry Mulligan – material that predates his better-known west coast sides of the mid 50s! These 1951 recordings are a seminal document of the team of Gerry Mulligan and Allan Eager – offering some of Mulligan's first big impact on the east coast scene before moving ... CD

Gerry Mulligan

Jeru
Columbia/Legacy, 1962. Used
A pretty great little album – and very different than Gerry Mulligan's regular sides from the time! The session was originally produced as part of the sessions for the short-lived Jazztime label in the early 60s – and was produced by Dave Bailey with a soulful undercurrent that's quite ... CD
TCB (Switzerland), 1960. Used
A searing live performance from this great large group – featuring Gerry Mulligan in the lead on baritone – with Zoot Sims on tenor, Bob Donovan on alto, Gene Quill on alto and clarinet, and trumpets from Nick Travis and Conte Candoli – all in a large group, with no piano at all. CD
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Used
Gerry Mulligan brings the piano back in nicely here – but in a way that still hangs onto all the best modern tones of his earlier Pacific Jazz sessions! The date's a live one – done at Storyville in Boston – but the sound is wonderfully intimate, with Gerry on baritone sax and ... 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" ... CD

Bill Perkins

Bill Perkins On Stage
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Used
A beautiful album of crispy cool jazz from the LA scene of the 50s – one that features the octet of Bill Perkins recorded live in Hollywood, but in a "special hi-fi theater recording" that has sound as sublime as his studio work! The group includes Perkins on tenor, Bud Shank on ... CD
Pacific Jazz, Mid 60s. Used
Fresh and modern big band work – with a nice dash of soul, and some of the early traces of funk that would later show up heavily in Ellis' 70s work! Tracks are long, and in compelling time structures – as indicated by the titles – and groove with an MPS-like approach to the work ... CD

Russ Freeman/Richard Twardzik

Trio
Pacific Jazz/Capitol, 1954. Used
One of the rarest albums on the Pacific Jazz label from the 50s – featuring a side apiece of trio material by pianists Russ Freeman and Richard (aka Dick) Twardzik. Both players were known as accompanists of Chet Baker during his sublime mid 50s run at Pacific Jazz – and although ... CD
