Complete Birth of the Cool
These pivotal, way-ahead-of-their-time 1949–1950 nonet recordings (with Gerry Mulligan, Lee Konitz, Gil Evans et al) remain jazz classics—though their sonic quality’s always been a bit lacking. But now, thanks to the magic of Mark Levinson’s Cello System, they’ve been remastered to bring out the voicings that make them so incredible. Plus, this release features 11 live tracks recorded over two weeks at the Royal Roost in September 1948—the only gigs this group ever did!
