Late Night Music Club With Gerry Mulligan And Antonio Carlos Jobim

A little bit of ephemera from an early sixties documentary, we join, in progress, a bit of a work session in Gerry Mulligan's apartment. Tom Jobim is playing his One Note Samba when Mulligan joins in on clarinet. They jam for a bit, but Gerry isn't happy with a note or two that he blows, so they stop, discuss, and swing the song out perfectly.

I'm no trained musician, and I'm still not quite sure what exactly they were discussing, but I love watching great artists in the process of working a piece through.
