  1. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hello this is a great phrase by Gerry Mulligan. It is simple, but very tasty and effective. He combined the pentatonic scale with approach notes. I made a transcription and analysis.

  2. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Hodges and Mulligan are two of my favourite players. They had a great taste, sound a relaxed classy approach. As a baritone player Mulligan (and Chaloff) is a big influence soundwise. I have always liked the baritone as a cavernous woody voice rather than a bright harsh sound we often hear in...
  3. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Here is Part Three of my series on Paul Desmond, including a 2 chorus transcription of "Wintersong," which is based on "These Foolish Things." Recorded in 1957 on the Blues In Time Record with Gerry Mulligan. Thinking of maybe turning this into an octet arrangement for my group, it is so...

  7. Baritone mpc
    Hey Everyone, I'm currently looking to find a mouthpiece to play on my Yamaha YBS-52 (hoping to eventually get a Conn 12M) that will give me that Mulligan sound. Any ideas on Mouthpieces? Reeds? Ligatures even? Thanks.
  8. Conn
    One of the things that I always wondered about is that why Gerry Mulligan never used a Mark VI and went with a Conn. He went right through the time period when the Mark was at it's height.
  9. Late Bloomers
    Hi Everyone, I played bari in a middle school marching band for a year, and 3 years in high school pep band. Never played any Jazz, but I'm starting to now after 20 years of not playing at all.
