My original acquaintance with MJQ hearkens back to college days in the late 60s and early 70s. I waited for years for a CD release (and remastered!) of both Sheriff and Lonely Woman, my two favorites by MJQ for decades. To me, these two just swing, and in the Sheriff we also have a Latin/bossa nova touch. Every piece is special. I can only think the guys really were mentally together or "on a groove" when in the recording studio for the Sheriff session(s), because everything seems just right. It's not the lengthiest MJQ issue, but quality exceeds quantity here. I'm ordering the last copy on hand from Amazon after completing this review, but if you have to wait a few days, or even weeks, in my opinion it will be worth your wait.
