Gerry Mulligan

Gerry Mulligan meets Ben Webster


Gerry Mulligan was the baritone saxophonist during the golden age of modern jazz, a master of the unwieldy and deep-toned instrument. Mulligan was an innovator of the West Coast cool jazz style who flourished playing with all manner of jazz musicians. In fact, Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster was just one of many 'meets' albums that Mulligan appeared on during this time.

By 1959 when Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster was recorded, Webster was a stone cold jazz legend, part of the early trinity of swing tenor players that included Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. He may have helped popularise that style in the 1940s, but he continued putting out high quality albums throughout the 1950s.
