My brother owned this as a vinyl LP when it was first released and although I was quite young to listen to this kind of music then I loved it, and rediscovered it again recently on a trip to the South of France where John Lewis had a villa. When I came back I ordered this and another couple of albums, and was not at all disappointed, the music is as fresh as ever. They were four incredibly talented musicians and composers. Vendome is a wonderful fast moving and evocative piece reflecting JLs love of France and the culture; this and Django are classic MJQ.

My CD is ancient and has just the original six tracks recorded 1959 / 1960.
Every track is a gem, the stand out track being "Django" (recorded many times; is this the definitive version? I think so). The title track (written by Ray Brown) is "Pyramid" (11 min) which is also a pearl.
With such a tight group as the MJQ is is impossible to single out individual musicians which probably accounts for their long lived success.

Lovely album...but, if you want to add extra track be sure the master suite the entire cd...!! Patterns is a terrible quality recording and is way more loud than Pyramid...Pyramid 5 stars...Patterns 2 stars

This is a very good CD. It's very lovely and complex jazz to be listened to or as cool background music. Love it.
