This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime meetings of giants...Baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and pianist Thelonious Monk team up on this 1957 recording!

When Riverside pared Thelonious Monk and Gerry Mulligan on this album, it seemed like a daring move. It is now clear that both men were the kind of revolutionaries who had substantial respect for the jazz tradition. It was more than a meeting of giants, it was proof of the strong bond connecting theoretically opposing forms of modern jazz (bop vs. cool).
