The other day I came across a breezy, swinging album called Gerry Mulligan Meets Johnny Hodges.  I’m a big fan of both saxophonists, and it’s nice to hear them together.  I think their lilting, melodic style is underappreciated by modern musicians and listeners who prefer a more “in your face” mode of playing, but it expresses a deep musicianship that I really admire.  This is the first track, written by Gerry for Johnny, whose nickname was “Rabbit”.
