Gerry Mulligan – Night Lights {PHILIPS}


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

This is a rather relaxed recording featuring baritonist Gerry Mulligan and some of his top alumni (trumpeter Art Farmer, trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Bill Crow, and drummer Dave Bailey) exploring three of his own songs (including “Festive Minor”), Chopin’s Prelude in E minor, “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” and “Morning of the Carnival” (from Black Orpheus). The emphasis is on ballads and nothing too innovative occurs, but the results are pleasing and laid-back.

Tracks:
01 – Night Lights (1963 Version)
02 – Morning of the Carnival [From “Black Orpheus”] (Manha de Carnaval)
03 – In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning
04 – Prelude in E Minor
05 – Festival Minor
06 – Tell Me When
07 – Night Lights (1965 Version)

Personnel:
Gerry Mulligan – baritone saxophone and piano
Jim Hall – guitar
Bill Crow – bass
Dave Bailey – drums
Art Farmer – trumpet and fluegelhorn
Bob Brookmeyer – trombone

Recorded September, 1963 (1-6); and October, 1965 (7)

Quality: eac, flac, cue, log, artwork
