#GerryMulligan

“Sbarbatello” a Milano nel 1959 un inedito Gerry Mulligan.

Gerry Mulligan (New York, 6 aprile 1927 – Darien, 20 gennaio 1996) è stato un sassofonista, compositore e arrangiatore statunitense, uno dei fondatori della scuola conosciuta come cool jazz.

Born in New York on April 6, 1927, Mulligan spent his childhood and adolescence in several American cities as his family moved wherever his father’s career as an engineer took them. Mulligan first studied piano at the age of seven, and then began studying clarinet. He studied saxophone with Sam Correnti, who encouraged him to begin arranging. When the family moved to Philadelphia, sixteen-year-old Gerry called on Johnny Warrington, director of the WCAU-CBS radio orchestra, to offer his services.
