On March 5th baritonist, David Larsen will be releasing an album of Gerry Mulligan music entitled “The Mulligan Chronicles.” This album features 4 musicians who all worked with Gerry Mulligan; Dave Glenn on trombone, Bill Mays on piano, Ron Vincent on drums, and Dean Johnson on bass.
In addition to musicians that played with Mulligan it features 13 of his songs. Some very well known ones (Walkin’ Shoes, Festive Minor), and a number of lesser known ones. David has done quite a bit of study on mulligan, looking at handwritten scores and speaking with Mulligan’s widow, Franca. Fans of Mulligan should check out this album.
