The Vinyl Junkie Reviews Gerry Mulligan’s “Mainstream Of Jazz”

Gerry Mulligan

The Vinyl Junkie

I want to point you to a very rare and wonderful album that has been underpriced at Silver Platters. Hopefully, it will still be in stock when you arrive. It’s a near mint copy of Gerry Mulligan & His Sextet called the “Mainstream of Jazz” on the original Emarcy label 36101.
As the jazz cognoscente know, Mulligan helped pioneer the cool school of jazz with Miles Davis on the “Birth of Cool” album and then subsequently took his piano-less quartet, featuring the great Chet Baker, from the West Coast to national stardom during the 1950s.
This LP highlights the great, innovative baritone sax of Mulligan with a different cast of sidemen, including the sax master Zoot Sims, bassist Bill Crow, drummer Dave Bailey, Bobby Brookmeyer on trombone and either the under-recorded Jon Eardley or Don Ferrara on trumpet. The sextet bops through six tunes, including “Igloo,” ”Blue at the Roots” and “Elevation.” All of the songs were recorded in New York City between January and September 1956.
Quite honestly, it doesn’t get much better than this album, if you happen to be a fan of bop and cool West Coast jazz. If you want even more material from this session, try to find the now out-of-print volumes 2 and 3 on Japanese only releases. Silver Platters might have them on CD.
