Sanford Josephson, author of Jeru's Journey: The Life & Music of Gerry Mulligan spoke with Dave Drexler host of Inside Art. They talked about the book and moments of Gerry Mulligan's life! Listen to the podcast below and let us know what you think!

Onstage and Backstage 

About the Book
Jeru's Journey – The Life & Music of Gerry Mulligan vividly recounts all the major milestones and complications in Mulligan's extraordinary life and career, ranging from his early days of arranging for big bands in the 1940s to his chance 1974 meeting with Countess Franca Rota, who would have a major impact on the last two decades of his life. In between were his battles with drugs; his significant contributions to the historic 1949 Birth of the Cool recording; the introduction of an enormously popular piano-less quartet in the early 1950s; the creation of his innovative concert jazz band in the early '60s; his collaboration – personal and professional – with actress Judy Holliday; his breakthrough into classical music; and his love of and respect for the American Songbook.
