Complete At Newport 1958
Gerry Mulligan (bs), Art Farmer (tp), Bill Crow (b), Dave Bailey (d) / Eric Dolphy (fl, cl, saxes), Nathan Gershman (cello), John Pisano (g), Hal Gaylor (b), Chico Hamilton (d)
All known recordings by Gerry Mulligan-Art Farmer Quartet and the Chico Hamilton Quintet with Eric Dolphy, at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival compiled here for the first time ever on a single CD.
Some of this festival music was professionally recorded - portions of these concerts were filmed and edited into Bert Sterns famous movie feature Jazz on a Summers Day- but some was preserved on less than professional equipment, so sound quality, as can be imagined, differs from source to source.
