Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond were two of the most mischievous men in jazz, kindred spirits united in their wit, sense of humour and approach to music.

There was a genuine fellow feeling between them, an affinity that extended beyond playing in time or fitting lines together. However, as might be expected of any group that featured Gerry with a piano-less rhythm section, this unit took on the informal personality of a Mulligan quartet; there were a couple of planned unison lines, but arrangement was kept to a minimum. And, as befits such a spectacularly happy union, it produced spontaneous creative combustion of the first order, full of excitement and felicitous surprises.
