5.0 out of 5 stars Chamber Jazz that swings like mad, 21 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Concert (Audio CD)
A chance hearing of 'The Golden Striker' on the radio in that late fifties was one of the catalysts that fired my love of modern jazz and then back in the early sixties when I was starting a collection of jazz albums someone gave me a copy of the MJQ's 'Django'. It's been a love affair with the group ever since. Strange then that this album has managed to pass me by for all the years since it was first issued back in the mid seventies because this is one of their very best.
They are a truly outstanding outfit, tight and swinging and not at all the straight laced band that their detractors would have us believe. Based on the flexible rhythms laid down by Percy Heath & Connie Kay on bass & drums John Lewis and Milt Jackson weave magical lines of improvisation. They were one of jazz's greatest bands and this album should be in every jazz lovers collection and I'm very glad I have it now, it's sure to be well played in the coming years. Very highly recommended.
