After the death of Gerry Mulligan, McNeil was asked to write for a Mulligan tribute band. His experience got him thinking about a concept in which the baritone legend's style could be incorporated within a free jazz approach, thus creating a new style.

With East Coast Cool, trumpeter John McNeil sets out to reinterpret the classic West Coast cool jazz sound of Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker's piano-less quartets. The music merges East Coast intensity with West Coast economy of expression, and creates a sound that is eminently listenable and enjoyably inventive.
