The Art of the Modern Jazz Quartet

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This excellent double LP gives listeners a fine overview of The Modern Jazz Quartet's many recordings for the Atlantic label during a nine-year period. There are 15 selections taken from 13 different albums with the highpoints including "Bags' Groove" with Sonny Rollins, "Lonely Woman," "Django," "Sketch For Double Quartet" with The Beaux Arts String Quartet, "Bluesology" and "Concorde." Although a good set for beginners, it is better to try to acquire the complete albums of The MJQ instead since they recorded many other rewarding performances for Atlantic not on this two-fer.
