Jeru's Journey - The Life & Music of Gerry Mulligan


213 pgs.
Hal Leonard Books, Publ.

In a career that spanned more than fifty years, Gerry Mulligan's legacy comes to life in this biography. Mulligan's own observations are drawn from his oral autobiography, recorded in 1995. These are intermingled with comments and recollections from those who knew him, played with him, or were influenced by him. Sanford Josephson vividly recounts Mulligan's battles with drugs; his contributions to the "The Birth of the Cool" recording; the introduction of a piano-less quartet; the creation of his concert jazz band; his relationship--personal and professional--with actress Judy Holliday; and his breakthrough into classical music.
