Gerry Mulligan Tribute
The robust sound of the baritone saxophone comes to the fore when three of the instrument's top players celebrate the music of the late Gerry Mulligan, one of the most influential baritone saxophonists of our time. Jazz veteran and group leader Ronnie Cuber joins Scott Robinson and Gary Smulyen--both masters on the New York music scene--for a set of spirited solos and sensitive interplay in the KC Jazz Club. "Like Mulligan," praises All About Jazz, "the trio plays it cool and with comfort." The Village Voice says: "When all three stand together, the earth shakes with melody."
