Gerry Mulligan was an American jazz saxophonist, arranger, and composer. Mulligan is primarily famous as the leading baritone saxophonists in the history of jazz. Mulligan organized his first “Concert Jazz Band” in the spring of 1960. The band differed in personnel and size from other bands, with the core group being five reeds, six brasses, and a piano-less two-piece rhythmic section. The band recorded and toured rigorously until the end of 1964, producing five record albums for Verve records. The Concert Jazz Band was “reunited” in 1978 and toured at various times through the next decade.
