40 Years of MJQ [DVD]
The distinguished Modern Jazz Quartet traces its origins to the irrepressibly flamboyant Dizzy Gillespie and his brazzy, shouting bebop big band.
Filmed live in Germany, pianist and composer John Lewis, bassist Percy Heath, vibraphonist extraordinaire Milt Jackson and drummer Micky Roker (subbing for Connie Kay) perform in this unforgettable performance that defines the dignity of jazz.
Now on DVD, MJQ is still swinging in this 40th Anniversary Concert celebration showcasing the signature sounds that have assured their lasting legacy: from the echoes of the classical European tradition to the inspiration of classical jazz.
Accompanied by a chamber string orchestra, songs include Three Window Medley, Sketch, Alexanders Fugue, Adagio from Concierto de Aranjues and A Day in Dubrovnik.
