The Fabulous Gerry Mulligan Quartet.France: Disques Vogue, 1971 Stock Code: 144579
A fine pairing of autographs: signed by both Mulligan and Brookmeyer in black and blue marker pen respectively across the inside of gatefold. This is the 1971 reissue of the June 1954 Salle Pleyel gig, originally released in 1955 on Pacific Jazz as Paris Concert. AllMusic describes it as "cool jazz at its best, played with plenty of wit and creativity".
Brookmeyer had replaced trumpeter John Eardly, who had himself replaced Chet Baker, in the Mulligan group, and is heard here with red Mitchell (bass) and Frank Isola (drums). The attractive Vogue labels have the considerable appeal of having been designed by the great Sonia Delaunay (who also happened to be the mother of leading French jazz critic Charles Delaunay, who supplied the liner notes).
2 12-inch vinyl LPs (Disques Vogue DP.07), new plain paper sleeves, original gatefold album cover.
A few neat annotations to running order, front cover with ghost of label removal at lower left, smaller ghost on back cover, a little shelf wear but overall very good; discs in excellent condition.
