Many of my favorite bari albums have been listed by other responders. One that I haven't seen yet, is a Mulligan album. It is called California Concerts and features Mulligan with John Edderly and Zoot Sims. It was the first Jazz album I listened to. I got it from my uncle who was a radio DJ in Little Rock, Arkansas in the '50s.
The California Concerts Album/CDs, contains excellent work by Mulligan. My favorite cut is "Little Girl Blue". It contains excellent phrasing and interplay between Mulligan and Edderly. You hear counterpoint along with an interesting baseline.
So I guess nobody but myself listens to Nick Brignola
Some of my favs would have to be... (excluding all the Mulligan his already)
Nick Brignola- Raincheck, What It Takes, and On A Different Level (all great!) Ronnie Cuber- NY Minute (first solo bari album I heard even though Ronnie is a douche) Gary Smulyan- Saxophone Mosaic (outstanding section playing as well) Morphine- Yes (first time I heard the exclusive use of Bari in a "pop" setting) T.O.P. Live 1998 Album (i'm a sucka fo' funk) and of course the Three Baritone Sax Tribute to Mulligan is EPIC!
