MULLIGAN MEETS MONK documents the 1957 meeting of two sharp musical minds. Though the pairing may seem unlikely, baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan--whose cool, West Coast style blends dexterity with laid-back grace--and Thelonious Monk--whose radical, angular piano playing and thoroughly modern compositions are blueprints for the possibilities of bop--sound remarkable together. In fact, it is the contrast between the players' styles that lends this set its balance and appeal.
The program, which includes four compositions by Monk and one by Mulligan, is unassailable. Mulligan acquits himself admirably on the Monk classics "'Round Midnight," "Rhythm-a-ning" and "Straight, No Chaser," unfurling his smooth tone over their zigzagging melodies and ambitious scalar architecture. (The CD also includes a handful of alternate takes.) Mulligan's "Decidedly," a bright bop workout, fits easily alongside Monk's tunes, especially with the help of Monk's off-kilter, accented comping. Bassist Wilbur Ware and drummer Shadow Wilson lend solid support to the spirited playing of the two leaders, making this top-notch session--with its great tunes, chemistry, and soloing--a true classic.
