The Modern Jazz Quartet - The Last Concert mp3 flac download
The Modern Jazz Quartet broke up after the concert documented on this double CD. It would be nearly seven years before the group got back together again but it certainly went out on top. Mostly revisiting their greatest hits, the MJQ is heard on this two-fer playing inspired versions of such songs as "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise," "Bags' Groove," "Skating in Central Park," "Confirmation," "The Golden Striker," and, of course, "Django.
Recorded on November 25, 1974 at Avery Fisher (Philharmonic) Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York City, in a concert presented by Harold Leventhal.

The Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) was a jazz combo established in 1952 that played music influenced by classical, cool jazz, blues and bebop. For most of its history the Quartet consisted of John Lewis (piano), Milt Jackson (vibraphone), Percy Heath (double bass), and Connie Kay (drums). The group grew out of the rhythm section of Dizzy Gillespie's big band from 1946 to 1948, which consisted of Lewis and Jackson along with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Kenny Clarke.

Recorded at the Avery Fisher Hall in New York on November 25, 1974, The Modern Jazz Quartet comprised of vibraphonist Milt Jackson, bassist Percy Heath, pianist John Lewis and drummer Connie Kay are at their very best. Performing with their distinctive bebop, cool jazz and third-stream sound, a blend of jazz and classical influences, the quartet performs some of their greatest hits including Bags’ Groove, Summertime, A Night in Tunisia and Django. This audiophile recording by one of jazz’s finest small ensembles is an essential for any jazz collection.
The Complete Last Concert. Label: Rhino Atlantic. Forget about the MJQ's stuffy, professorial image. The could, and did, swing like nobody's business - especially in concert. First off: drummer Connie Kaye and bassist Percy Heath made up one of the greatest rhythm sections in jazz history. Then, group leader John Lewis' lean, stabbing piano lines build a foundation for Milt Jackson - the single greatest vibraphonist in history - to solo on top of. An exciting document from a pigeonholed band.
