When jazz giants Gerry Mulligan and Ben Webster collaborated for this legendary 1959 session, history was made, as was a classic record for the ages. This smooth and supple set is included among NPR’s “Basic Jazz Record Library”. The tunes are lush and emotional, driven along by a rhythm section that swings with just the right amount of bop.

“In listening to Gerry Mulligan,” Dave Brubeck once said,”you feel as if you’re listening to the past, present, and future of jazz, all in one tune, and yet it’s done with such taste and respect that you’re not ever aware of a change in idom.” – from liner notes by Nat Hentoff

“The rhythm section for this date is uncommonly right for the Webster-Mulligan meeting. Rowles, Lewis, and Vinnegar all base their playing on a knowledge of ‘the history of the language’ they’re using, and all three have secure, relaxed time. Furthermore, all three get solid, rounded sounds from their instruments…” – from liner notes by Nat Hentoff
This is an exceptional reissue of a really worthwhile encounter between two greats that should play happily in your collection for as long as you care about jazz. – Michael Fremmer Analogue Planet – Review
