Noon Edition

Three Guitars

This week on Afterglow we'll feature music from a recent Mosaic collection of Gerry Mulligan's 1957 recordings, highlighting the baritone saxophonist's collaborations with Annie Ross and a reunion date with trumpeter Chet Baker, as well as the extraordinary Gerry Mulligan Songbook (with an all-star cast of saxophonists that included Lee Konitz, Allen Eager, Zoot Sims, and Al Cohn) and a date made with a string quartet.

We'll also hear music from Mel Powell and Peanuts Hucko's 1945 meeting with Django Reinhardt in newly-liberated Paris, Ray Nance's haunting version of "Take the A Train" from his 1969 album Body and Soul, Buddy Rich's take on "This Time the Dream's On Me" from Buddy Rich Sings Johnny Mercer (yes, Buddy sang, too... who knew?!) and more.
