Exploring afresh the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind, this new band promises to evoke the spirit of these classic recordings while giving free reign to the personalities of the musicians.

The Mulligan and Desmond recordings were by a quartet of baritone and alto sax, bass and drums. CD re-releases included some tracks with guitar added.

Arrangements drawn from the original Desmond/Mulligan records are featured, including Stardust, Stand Still, All The Things You Are, Easy Living, Lover, The Way You Look Tonight and Blight of the Fumble Bee. We also feature our arrangements of How Deep Is The Ocean and Indian Summer, as well as two new standards-based compositions by Chris Biscoe, Then and Now and Rest Easy.
