2 LPs on 1 CD! The Modern Jazz Quartet s classic original album Pyramid (Atlantic LP1325) in its entirety. Along with the title tune a beautiful composition by Ray Brown it presents the definitive version of John Lewis gem Django . As a bonus, we have added the complete LP Patterns (United Artists UAL4063), which features the exact same personnel. The latter LP was recorded by the MJQ in between the sessions for Pyramid, and consists of six John Lewis compositions. The original 1954 version of Django has also been added as a bonus.
This album affords good insight into the evolution of the MJQ with its new versions of Django and Vendome . The present interpretations are taken at faster tempos than the original recordings, and while some of the subtle interplay among the instruments is lost, they swing more. In fact the LP swings as much if not more than any of the quartet s previous efforts; but it s a delicate swing, not of the sweaty, down-home sort. Besides swinging, the MJQ offers intelligence also, something that the back-to-the-land advocates sometimes omit. A fine and worthy addition to your file of albums. --Don DeMichealSee all Product Description

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.

This is a very good CD. It's very lovely and complex jazz to be listened to or as cool background music. Love it.Published on 15 Feb. 2014 by Richard Field
