2018 Japanese CD reissue.
The final recording by Gerry Mulligan's Concert Jazz Band before he had to break it up is one of its lesser efforts but still quite worthwhile. With originals by Bob Brookmeyer, Gary McFarland and the baritonist/leader (in addition to the standards "Little Rock Getaway" and "My Kind of Love"), this is a high-quality if rather brief program. Trumpeter Clark Terry and guitarist Jim Hall co-star with Mulligan in the solo department. It is a pity that this orchestra could not prosper; all five of its recordings are worth getting.
