The Complete Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster Sessions (Bonus Tracks, Box Set)
by Ben Webster
Released: Jan 1959
Not only is this the single finest Mulligan Meets A Famous Saxophonist album, it's also one of the essential 1950s jazz albums. This warm set proves that the cool modernist was steeped in Swing, while the elder statesman could more than keep up with young hipsters. A special album highlighted by the definitive reading of Strayhorn's "Chelsea Bridge."
