Mulligan Stew

Jazz Band Classic and baritone sax great Gary Smulyan pay tribute to jazz legend Gerry Mulligan, featuring arrangements for the bands of Gene Krupa, Elliott Lawrence, Stan Kenton, and Mulligan's own landmark Concert Jazz Band.

Guest Artist

Gary Smulyan, baritone saxophone

Baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan was born April 4, 1956, in Bethpage, New York. The gifted multi-instrumentalist started his music career by first learning alto saxophone during his teenage years on Long Island. Today he is critically acclaimed across-the-board and recognized as the major voice on the baritone saxophone. His playing is marked by an aggressive rhythmic sense, an intelligent and creative harmonic approach -- and perhaps most importantly – a strong and incisive wit.
