Big Man on Mulberry Street Wikipedia
"Big Man on Mulberry Street" is a jazz influenced song by Billy Joel from the 1986 album The Bridge (1986).
Jazz musician Ron Carter plays acoustic bass on the track. The horn section includes acclaimed musicians Eddie Daniels on alto saxophone, Michael Brecker on tenor saxophone, Ronnie Cuber on baritone saxophone, Marvin Stamm and Alan Rubin (a.k.a. Mr Fabulous) on trumpets and Dave Bargeron (of Blood, Sweat & Tears) on trombone.
An extended version of the song was used on a season three episode of Moonlighting. The episode was titled "Big Man On Mulberry Street". In a dream sequence, Maddie Hayes envisions David Addison's history with his ex-wife, presented as an elaborate dance sequence with no dialogue; Sandahl Bergman was the main dancer. An extra horn solo was added to the song.
