Composed by Gerry Mulligan

One of the few baritone sax players that went on to lead his own group, Gerry Mulligan shows off his agility with his bossa nova flavoured song "Capricious".  This recording is from his 1963 album "Jeru".  Having played the baritone saxophone myself, Gerry Mulligan was one of the saxophonists I spent a lot of time listening to, especially his sessions with trumpeter Chet Baker.
