In 1992, Gerry Mulligan was named the guest composer at the 1992-1993 Mertens Contemporary

American Composer's Festival at the University of Bridgeport, in Connecticut. The festival,

which was started in the early 70s, honors significant American composers, and winners have

included Aaron Copland, Stephen Sondheim, and Leonard Bernstein. Mulligan was only the

second jazz composer to be honored by the festival; Dave Brubeck being the first, in

1979-1980.

The show these recordings are from was the headline event of the festival - a concert,

performed by university faculty and, led by Mulligan. He held an open rehearsal that

afternoon where they worked up his arrangements and compositions. Here is an article about

Mulligan's appearance:

Mulligan had, only the year before, returned to his "cool" era by revisiting many of the

songs and musicians featured on Miles Davis' Birth of the Cool. Gerry's 1992 record,

Re-Birth of the Cool, was supposed to feature Miles himself but the trumpeter died before he

could lay down any tracks.

I recorded this show using gear borrowed from a long-time/well-known CT taper. I actually

had a setlist but lost it. I was heavy into this subgenre of jazz for a while but the space

in my brain that remembered which track was which has been replaced...or is shut down!

Enjoy
