Wikipedia : This day (January 20, 1996), in Darien, Connecticut, died Gerry Mulligan, an American jazz baritone saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and arranger.

Official Site : Recognized as an important 20th century composer, arranger, saxophonist, and conductor, he has played a vital role in the history of modern jazz and contemporary music. He was consistently voted number one in jazz polls around the world and has won a record twenty-nine consecutive Down Beat Readers Poll awards.

@allmusic : The most famous and probably greatest jazz baritonist of all time, Gerry Mulligan was a giant. A flexible soloist who was always ready to jam with anyone from Dixielanders to the most advanced boppers,

@last.fm : Gerry Mulligan’s first notable recorded work on baritone was with Miles Davis’ Birth of the Cool nonet (1948-50) but once again his arrangements (“Godchild,” “Darn That Dream” and three of his originals “Jeru,” “Rocker” and “Venus de Milo”) were more significant than his short solos.
