Released:
Label: Sunnyside
The pianoless quartet that made jazz stars out of Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker was influential during the 1950s, defining a floating West Coast cool that complemented and counterbalanced the Miles Davis East Coast sound. Here, trumpeter John McNeil and saxophonist Bill McHenry recast themselves in a funhouse version of Baker and Mulligan. They somehow keep the breezy coastal vibe alive while offering sinister snatches of tough New York streets and echoes of an avant-garde jazz world that fits naturally into the session. The somewhat freaky album title is an anagram of the two leaders' names. As a bonus, this may be the finest album art of 2010, in any style of music.
