In the summer of 1991 Gerry Mulligan decided to revisit Miles Davis's Birth of the Cool recordings. He discussed it with Miles Davis himself who said he might be interested in participating but sadly Davis died a few months later. With Wallace Roney (the perfect sound-alike) in the trumpeter's place, baritonist Mulligan got the band's original pianist and tuba player (John Lewis and Bill Barber), used his own bassist (Dean Johnson) and drummer (Ron Vincent), and found able substitutes in altoist Phil Woods (unfortunately Lee Konitz was unavailable to play his old parts), trombonist Dave Bargeron and John Clark on French horn.
The artist, Antonio Lopez, tries to paint the quince tree he planted some time back in his garden. Throughout his life, he has worked on the same theme many times, almost as if it were a physical necessity. Every year, with the arrival of autumn, this need resurfaces. The artist's work has never represented the sun's rays between the leaves of the tree, and, given his characteristic realist style, he tries to achieve this. But he goes about it in the same way, without consciously pursuing a finished picture - he just wants to be close to the fragile lavish tree for a few weeks.
A group of friends who call themselves "The Midnight Society" meet in the woods at night to tell ghost stories around the campfire. Each episode features a new story dealing with different characters in different situations. The series, which was part of the SNICK lineup, was one of Nickelodeon's most popular shows in the early 90's and lasted for 5 seasons, until it was canceled in 1996. It was then revived in 1999 with an all new cast, only to be canceled again two seasons later. This Twilight Zone for a younger audience, is sorely missed and will always remain one of Nick's greatest classics.
