"These three late Mulligan recordings in a boxed set are a must for any fan of the baritone player/arranger/composer, and an excellent introduction of Mulligan's music to anyone. Paraiso, a selection of brazilian music, mostly written by Gerry Mulligan i cooperation with brazilian singer/actress Jane Duboc, cooks gently and has all the brazilian tinge anyone could wish for. Memorable tunes, including an excellent take on Jobim's "Wave". Dream A Little Dream, a quartet recording, a fine rendering of many jazz classics. And finally, Dragonfly, as I have reviewed before, is, in my opinion, one of Mulligan's finest recordings through his fifty year long recording career. The tunes are great, the players are great and in superb shape, the arrangements lush and pretty, with a 5-piece brass section accompnying the band, featuring John Scofield, Dave Samuels, Grover Washington, Jr. and Warren Vache. All these three records at such a pleasant price, you should opt for a box today!"
