Gerry Mulligan Quartet 1952-1953 (with Larry Bunker, Chico Hamilton, Carson Smith, and Bob Whitlock)
More than 25 muscians who first came to prominence during the 1950s are the subject of this collection of interviews. The author's purpose has been to help preserve the oral history of a great American artform, and this book reveals that jazz musicians who can 'tell a story' with their horn when improvising can be just as articulate in conversation.
