Modern Jazz Quartet - European Concert European Concert
Jazz New - LP SD 2-603 Atlantic
Sealed 2LP Stereo Gatefold (Label Variation Unknown, But We Believe This Heavy Package Is The Blue & Green Label First Issue) “Long Considered One Of, If Not THE Classic Album From The Modern Jazz Quartet, European Concert Defines Them Simultaneously As A Recording Entity As Well As A Working Band. MJQ Presented Jazz In The Context Of A Formally Structured Environment, Much Like A Chamber Group In The Classical Context. Within The Band, The Groove Of Milt Jackson's Vibes Met The Solid Swing Of Connie Kay's Drums, The Funky Strut Of Percy Heath's Bass, And The Elegant Classicism Of John Lewis's Piano. The MJQ Were Able, In A Context That Pushed At Jazz's Boundaries From The Outside, To Create A Music That Swung Without Edges Or Fragmented Harmonic Structures. The Show Included The Finest Moments Of Their Early Recording Career In A Live Setting. One Listen To "Django" Will Make Your Head Swim, With Its Sparse Rhythmic Texture That Is Still Driving And Lewis' Rag Melody Line When It Encounters The Pure Stretch Of The Polytonal Rhythms Jackson Is Laying Down. If It Weren't For Heath The Entire Thing Would Become Unglued, Because He Was The Hinge On This Set. Top Recommendation.” Thom Jurek, AMG.... more details

Modern Jazz Quartet - The Modern Jazz Quartet Plays George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess The Modern Jazz Quartet Plays George Gershwin's Porgy & Bess
Jazz New - LP SD 1440 Atlantic
Factory Sealed 1965 Heavy Vinyl Blue & Green Label With Fan Logo Stereo Original. “The Modern Jazz Quartet, A Group Legendary For It's Feats During Their Heyday In The Cool Bop Period Of Jazz Music, Shares With The Listener A Brilliant Effort Encompassing Their Impression Of Composer George Gershwin's "Porgy And Bess." Acclaimed By Encyclopedia Britannica As "The Greatest American Musical Drama Ever Written," The Modern Jazz Quartet Perform It At The Highest Level Of Creative Flair To Pay Homage To A Marvel Of Composition With The Utmost Degree Of Sincerity And Respect. This Is A Piece That Gershwin Took A Full 11 Months To Compose And Nine Months To Orchestrate, All Based On The Initial Inspiration From A Drama Written By Playwright Dorothy Heyward. Opening Up The Score Is Gershwin's Dazzling And Seductive Tune "Summertime," A Landslide Mark Of Musical Brilliance. So Daring And Stylish Do The Quartet Seem, That They Bring Quite A Sense Of Dynamics And Energy To The Performance. The Percussive Textures Of Connie Kay On Drums And Percy Heath On Bass Blend In Beautifully With The Lush Dual Sound Of John Lewis On Piano And Milt Jackson On The Vibraharp. The Second Tune, "Bess, You Is My Women," Is An Up-Tempo Delight Of Soaring Swing, With A Combination Of Dashing Walking Basslines And Sweetly Decorated Melody Chops. "My Man's Gone Now" Is A Savvy Piece That Deeply Grips The Listener's Soul And Sweeps Them Away. Alluring And Charming In Content, One Can Sincerely Feel The Band Has Spoken Confidently, Not Diminishing Its Avant-Garde Form. Two Other Tunes Of Note On The Record Are "I Love Porgy," A Sentimental And Softly Done Ballad, And "It Ain't Necessarily So," Quite A Mesmerizing Tune Encompassing A Vast Array Of Changing Meters. Sweetly Syncopated, This Jam Is Quite A Roller Coaster Ride. The Modern Jazz Quartet Is Alive And Well In This Effort, Thoroughly Brewing With Overbearing Optimism. Lavish In Orchestration, Shining With Dexterity, It Is No Wonder That It Is Rare To Find Such A Group That Can Emulate George Gershwin's Work With Such Spontaneity And Prowess. The Music Is Felt In The Text Of A Discretely Tight Yet Unpredictable Setting, Yet The Band Doesn't Fail To Go Overboard On Taste. Well Versed In Direction And Refreshing In Statement, The Modern Jazz Quartet Invents Gershwin In A New Fashion, With A Personality In And Of Their Own.” Shawn M. Haney, AMG.... more details

Modern Jazz Quartet - Plastic Dreams Plastic Dreams
Jazz New - LP SD 1589 Atlantic
Sealed 1971 Laminated Gatefold Original. "This Was As Close As The MJQ Ever Got To Making A Pop Album, And The Production Work Of Arif Mardin Reflects That Idea. The Opener, "Walkin' Stomp," Reasserts This Concept In A Big Way; It Is As Far Into Playing Pure Funk That The MJQ Ever Got, With Percy Heath Laying Down A Solid Groove And Milt Jackson Contributing A Brilliant, Blazing Solo. While There Is Nothing Else In The MJQ's Book Like "Trav'lin," Martin Williams Stated That It Was "Another One Reminiscent Of Their Early Pieces." The Title Track, "Plastic Dreams," Is A Reflective And Relaxed Tune That Benefits From Lewis' Employment Of The Harpsichord Over The Piano. The Version Of "Piazza Navona" Here Utilizes Five Horns And Is Like An Entirely Different Composition From The One That Appeared On The Comedy And Lewis' Album The Golden Striker In 1960. It Has An Irresistibly Catchy, Entirely New Introductory Figure That Winds Its Way Through The Piece, And Once You Hear It On Plastic Dreams, You'll Miss It When You Listen To The Older Versions. Despite The Lukewarm Criticism That Has Attended To It, Plastic Dreams Is One Of The MJQ's Most Exploratory Efforts, Though In The Opposite Direction From Albums Like Third Stream Music. As Such, Plastic Dreams Deserves Pride Of Place As One Of The Late, And Last, High-Water Marks To Be Found Among Their Studio Work During Their Regular Period Of Activity, And It Remains One Of The Most Hip Sounding And Easily Enjoyed Of The MJQ's Albums More Than Thirty Years On."

Sealed 1985 Japanese Original With Obi. Different Cover Art Than The US Release. “Despite The Title Of This Album, The Music On This 1985 Studio Set From The Modern Jazz Quartet Is Not A Program Of Count Basie Tunes (With The Exception Of "Topsy") Although Basie Apparently Liked The John Lewis Composition "D And E." The Other Unrelated Music Is Highlighted By An Unaccompanied Feature For Vibraphonist Milt Jackson ("Nature Boy"), "Reunion Blues" And Three More Complex Pieces From Pianist John Lewis. Overall This LP Gives Listeners A Fine Example Of The Music Of The MJQ During The 1980s.” Scott Yanow, All Music Guide.... more details
