Gerry Mulligan Orchestra - Live in Milan '80

Nearly twenty years after the famous Concert Jazz Band,
Mulligan had the opportunity of refounding a new Big Band
made up of young musicians more few veterans (J.Coles,B.Johnson).
In my opinion one of the greatest Big Band of that period.

I remember hearing this band on the radio on NPR (although I don't think it was 1980). I can't remember the show off of the top of my head. Thanks for posting.

This is a treat indeed--thank you. This is so different from the Concert band and therefore most welcome. I remember not liking Age of Steam when it first came out, but now will want to revisit in light of this. Thank you again.

Actually, I see that half of these charts are on Walk on the Water, which is still available, unlike Age of Steam, which seems to be out of print and I do not think I still have the lp, alas.

Thank you Riccardo. I am a fun of Mulligan and never heard him in the 80's.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to correct errors in the track list as posted for Gerry Mulligan Live in Milano 1980 regarding two compositions attributed to the wrong composer.

Track #3 on Disc #1 'Round Sundown was written by Gerry Mulligan, not by Bernie Hanighen.

Track #4 on Disc#1 Walk On The Water was also written by Gerry Mulligan, not Harold Danko who was only playing the piano for this recording.

Please advise me once you have made these corrections to your blog.

Also, I wonder how you came to have this misinformation and the recordings?
