Format: Audio CD
The Modern Jazz Quartet, Jazzology, NOT2CD365
Here you will find 3 LPs on 2CDs. The albums are "Django" with 8 tracks and approx 39 minutes running time. The performers are Milt Jackson on vibes; John Lewis on piano; Percy Heath on bass & Kenny Clarke on drums. Together they play 5 compositions by John Lewis & some familiar standards. The recordings were made on various dates between 1953 & 1955 and were originally issued on the Prestige label.
CD2 comprises the albums "Fontessa" with 7 tracks and the personnel the same as above except with Connie Kay now on drums. The tracks were recorded between January & February 1956 and were issued by Atlantic Records. "Concorde" contains 6 tracks and has the same personnel but was recorded in July 1955 and issued on the Prestige label. In total there are 3 compositions by Lewis; 1 by Jackson along with those by Dizzy Gillespie and mainstream composers of the standards era. The total running time for CD2 is approx 73 minutes. The transfers are very good throughout. The origins of the MJQ were the Dizzy Gillespie big band of the 1940s. MJQ ran from 1952 to 1974 and these 3 formative albums are first rate examples of how they were able to play a wide range of compositions giving them all the MJQ sound. Outstanding performances come on CD1 "Autumn in New York" & CD2 with "I'll Remember April" and then a Gershwin medley. The informative liner notes are by Peter Gamble and the set is attractively packaged. Ideal for both collectors and those who wish to sample the best of the early MJQ.

First listened to their music in the mid fifties and still love it. They are, I'm sure, missed by many of us particularly from that era and were unique in a class of their own.
