Low Contrast

brookmeyer and mulligan

Here are two choice tracks which were recorded on August 21st at La Luna Cafe in Cambridge, MA.  I might put up a few more tracks in the next several days, as I have time.  Download the track by clicking on the name, or listen to it via the streaming flash player.

Low Contrast by Randy Pingrey

Venus De Milo by Gerry Mulligan (arranged by Randy Pingrey)

Kathy Olson – bari sax
Randy Pingrey – trombone
Mark Zaleski – bass
Austin McMahon – drums

I’m particularly excited about the track Low Contrast.  I wrote it for this group, and my idea was: what if Morton Feldman wrote a tune for the Mulligan/Brookmeyer band?  I’m quite pleased with the results, and it’s a thing I’m definitely going to pursue in future projects.
