Description by OLDIES.com:
From the golden age of jazz, we bring you this phenomenal DVD featuring live American TV footage of three legendary twentieth-century musicians. Filmed in the 1960s, these broadcasts will transport you back in time. Performances by the Gerry Mulligan Quartet, the Art Pepper Quartet, and Art Farmer with Jim Hall.
Legendary cool jazz composer Gerry Mulligan opens this collection of modern jazz performances, playing both baritone sax and piano. Characteristically sensuous, lyrical, and subtle, he is joined in a quartet by Bob Brookmeyer in a concert that was originally broadcast on July 18, 1962. The group plays four songs, including "Four For Three," "Utter Chaos," and "Open Country." Next, a rare performance from Art Pepper from the mid-1960s features three original songs by the passionate alto saxophonist: "The Trip," "D Section," and "Untitled." He appears in a quartet that includes Frank Strazzeri on piano. Finally, Art Farmer and Jim Hall are joined by Steve Swallow and Walter Perkins in playing five classic songs, including "Change Partners," "Some Time Ago," and "Bag's Groove."
