Modern Jazz Quartet Live in Brussels (Part I) Sonuma Archives 1962


The Modern Jazz Quartet was a unique and impressive beast that emerged from the 1950s cool jazz era. With the pianist John Lewis at the helm (he contributed most of their compositions), Vibraphonist Milt Jackson, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Connie Kay went on to be one of the most enduring and successful small ensembles in jazz history, their recording career lasting well into the 1990s (with a short break in the 70s over financial issues and touring schedule disputes).
