On this edition I pay tribute to baritone saxophonist, composer and arranger Gerry Mulligan on what would have been his 90th Birthday and you can hear a hand-picked selection of his work from the early days with Miles Davis's Birth of the Cool Nonet via his pianoless Quartet with Chet Baker and his Concert Jazz Band to his final recordings.
Remembering JERU, one of the greatest Jazz musicians ever lived.
TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
