Bebop Spoken There

Noah Haidu: "He [Kenny Kirkland] had zero interest in having a public persona and seeking out record-label attention; he didn't have an interest in becoming known." - (Jazz Times January/February 2021)

Gerry Mulligan Concert Band - "Live at the Village Vanguard."

Listening to the Gerry Mulligan Concert Band live at the Village Vanguard (1960). It's on Spotify and is one of the best big(gish) band records around.
"Blueport" is an absolute hoot with Clark Terry at his impish best and Mulligan playing modern Dixieland if you know what I mean.
Johnny Mandel's "Black Nightgown" is another beauty that is always worth hearing again (Brings up a picture of Susan Hayward in the film "I Want To Live").
Superb session.
