12 MP3 Songs
JAZZ: Bebop, JAZZ: Traditional Jazz Combo

"Jennifer Hall''s tribute to Gerry Mulligan brings ten west coast jazz veterans together for a celebration that explores Mulligan''s music as well as his legacy. Jennifer played baritone saxophone with Jack Sheldon''s big band and Ann Patterson''s Maiden Voyage, but prefers a quintet format in this intimate session." - Sea Breeze Jazz

"Ive heard a number of tributes to the late great Gerry Mulligan, none warmer or more persuasive than this. Jennifer Hall, a superb baritone saxophonist whose abiding respect for Mulligan is evident in every note she plays, has assembled an all-star group of West Coast musicians for a heartfelt remembrance that scans eleven of Mulligan''s memorable compositions and another, "Bernie''s Tune," that was a hallmark of Mulligan and trumpeter Chet Baker''s pianoless quartet in the early ''50s." - Jack Bowers, All About https://www.tradebit.com

"Hall is a solid player with a lovely tone and an incessant swing feel. The cats that she shares the spotlight with are all first rate. The tracks with Saunders, "Elevation" and "Line for Lyons," and Whitfield, "Festive Minor" and "Rocker (Rock Salt)," are the cream of a very fertile crop. Also to be cherished is the Sheldon vocal on "Summer''s Over." He is one of those jazz musicians who can parlay a voice that sounds far from classic with a sense of phrasing that elevates his singing to pleasurable listening. His trumpet playing is also to be savored. Hall has a winner here, blending her talent with great partners and great tunes to produce a worthy initial outing as a leader." - Joe Lang, Feb. 2007 Jersey Jazz, Journal of the New Jersey Jazz Society

"Jennifer Hall, as mentioned, is a baritone player in a class by herself and her talent is showcased to perfection in this album. The cast of characters are the cream of the crop as befits an artist of Hall''s caliber. This is jazz as it is supposed to be, nothing esoteric, nothing remotely resembling cacophony, just pure jazz by the best in the business. 5 stars." - John Gilbert at California Coast Jazz, Johnny Jazzs Jazz Page

"As many musicians know, the business of putting together a CD can be an expensive and sometimes frustrating thing. Saxophonist Jennifer Hall knows all about it. In her case, it was worth the blood, sweat and tears. She just recently released her CD, Jennifer Hall Meets....A West Coast Tribute to Gerry Mulligan. (Seabreeze Jazz). Her roster of musicians is top drawer all the way. Hall who doubles on all the reeds, in this case, of course, plays the baritone sax, and share some of that privilege with Roger Neumann as well. Then there''s Terry Harrington on clarinet and tenor sax, Tom Kubis on soprano sax, Josh Nelson at the piano, Carl Saunders on trumpet, Jack Sheldon on trumpet and a vocal, Dave Stone, bass, Scott Whitfield, trombone, and Santo Savino on drums, whom we remember seeing at the Four Queens in Las Vegas in years past when they had their Monday night jazz shows." "Congratulations to Jennifer Hall for this gathering of great musicians and the fine CD she and Peter Woodford produced as a result. This is one that would make a nice gift for the Christmas stocking, or during the festival of Hanukkah. To this column''s readers, we wish the very happiest of holidays. Theme and set." - Bob Agnew, L.A. Jazz Scene newspaper December 2006
