5.0 out of 5 stars MID-FIFTIES CHAMBER JAZZ, 8 July 2008
This review is from: Four Classic Albums (The Modern Jazz Quartet / Django / Fontessa / The Modern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn) (Audio CD)
I'm not sure why the decision was taken to ignore chronological sequence, but CD 1 kicks off with the group-titled April 1957 album, before regressing to the earlier "Django", noteworthy for the four-part "La Ronde Suite" and for drummer Kenny Clarke's last studio appearance with the quartet. The second CD contains two 1956 albums; the earlier stately "Fontessa" which drew inspiration from the improvised form of the Renaissance commedia dell'arte, and the August "Music Inn" session at which clarinettist Jimmy Giuffre guested on three tracks. This is essentially cerebral music, appreciation of which is aided by the crisp and clear remastering. A considerable bargain.
