Biography

(early 1950s – present)

Gerald Joseph “Gerry” Mulligan (April 6, 1927 – January 20, 1996) was an American jazz saxophonist, composer and arranger.

Though Gerry Mulligan is primarily known as one of the leading baritone saxophonists in jazz history - playing the instrument with a light and airy tone in the era of cool jazz - he was also a notable arranger, working with Claude Thornhill, Miles Davis, Stan Kenton, and others.

Mulligan’s pianoless quartet of the early 1950s with trumpeter Chet Baker is still regarded as one of the more important cool jazz groups.
