TWO COMPLETE ALBUMS ON 2-CD SET

This 2-CD set presents all existing studio recordings by the quartet fronted by the great Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond. They consist of the complete original LPs "Blues in Time" (Verve MGV8246) and "Two of a Mind" (RCA Victor LSP-2624). The wonderful interplay of their respective baritone and alto saxes is clear from the beginning. Along with the contents of the original albums, this set adds all other extant tune or take from the sessions, including two tracks on which the quartet is joined by guest Jim Hall on guitar. Mulligan and Desmond would perform together in later years in a quintet format on long tours with Dave Brubeck but never made a single quartet date again.
