This release presents the complete original 1958 album Gene Krupa Plays Gerry Mulligan Arrangements (Verve MGVS-6008). Krupa and Mulligan had known each other for more than a decade when this LP was made. Mulligan began collaborating with the Krupa band in 1946 and all of Krupa's other studio recordings of Mulligan arrangements have been added here as a bonus, including a Mulligan score of Indiana which wasn't repeated on the 1958 album, as well as five arrangements that were re-recorded more than ten years later.
