Ted Hogarth and
The Mulligan Mosaics Big band
"LIVE AT JAZZ SHOWCASE"

- Harvey Siders, JazzTimes
Back in the early Fifties, when Gerry Mulligan
formed his famous quartet with Chet Baker, it
was without a piano to provide that front line
with the ultimate harmonic freedom. In 1960,
when Mulligan expanded his composing and
arranging palettes to embrace the 13-member
Concert Jazz Band, he again eschewed piano.
Four years ago, when Chicago's Ted Hogarth
created his homage to Mulligan with the
Mulligan Mosaics Big Band, the latter consisted
of 13 players but no pianist. That's where most
similarities end.
Hogarth has successfully re-created the spirit of
the original Concert Jazz Band (he was given
total access to the Mulligan library by Gerry's
widow, Franca), with first-class Chicago-area
musicians, but the spirit of the solo work fails to
match the the original excitement of exploration.
No surprises there; how can one expect
baritonist Hogarth to duplicate the pristine
freshness of the two Mulligan solos on the
Brookmeyer chart, "A Ballad," or what tenorist
Mark Colby does with Bill Holman's arrangement
of "Apple Core," originally peeled by Zoot Sims?
Another highlight comes on the Billy Strayhorn
composition, "Intimacy of the Blues." As
arranged by Tom Matta, the orchestration of the
horns behind Colby and Matta's own trumpet
are sufficiently chordal to make up for the
comping of a piano or guitar.
Hogarth's intent, for this project, is to
honor-by-update...not to duplicate. He
successfully refreshes the Mulligan message
and even makes orchestrations available online
through the Library of Congress. That should
provide enough to feed a whole new generation
plenty of Mulligan stew.
