Music of Gerry Mulligan & John Lewis, at Lincoln Center
Postwar America saw the hard edges of bebop segue to the cool. The music bewitched baritone sax man Gerry Mulligan, and it enchanted classically-trained pianist John Lewis; both became pioneers of this sophisticated style. Pianist Jonathan Batiste and baritone saxophone master Joe Temperly join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra to make the cool all new. The set includes Django, Delauney’s Dilemma, and Animal Dance.
