The Music of the Modern Jazz Quartet

0 Love It
Save it
Practically no other band in jazz history managed to walk the tightrope between blues feeling and classical elegance as well as the Modern Jazz Quartet, which left behind a few dozen fine records (including two on the Beatles' Apple imprint) and a durable legacy when it disbanded for good in the early ’90s. You pretty much couldn't imagine a finer lineup to take on the MJQ's canon than vibraphonist Steve Nelson, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Lewis Nash; if you need further incentive to attend, note that veteran guitarist Jim Hall will be on hand as a special guest.
