“Getz Meets Mulligan” (also released as “Gerry Mulligan Meets Stan Getz” and “Getz Meets Mulligan in Hi-Fi”) is an album by American jazz saxophonists Gerry Mulligan and Stan Getz featuring performances recorded in 1957 and released on the Verve label.
Gerry Mulligan and Stan Getz are far and away two of the greatest legends of jazz. This 1957 album is like two sax shaped butterflies, one baritone, one tenor darting around one another. Together Mulligan and Getz make the most sublime combinations and riff off each other with a musical choreography that is dazzling. They also improvise simultaneously with great results. Getz playing baritone and Mulligan playing tenor with Lou Levy on piano, Ray Brown on bass and the great Stan Levey is on drums.
