On this Mobile Fidelity CD reissue of a live Atlantic set from 1966, The Modern Jazz Quartet performs eight blues-based compositions. In addition to such familiar pieces as the inevitable "Bags' Groove," "Ralph's New Blues" (dedicated to jazz critic Ralph Gleason) and "The Cylinder," there are a few newer pieces (including "Home" which is similar to Lee Morgan's hit "The Sidewinder") included for variety. This predictable but consistently swinging set is particularly recommended to fans of vibraphonist Milt Jackson.
Blues at Carnige Hall
OUTSTANDING!!! I have loved this album since I purchased it (in mono!) back in 1965! I was overjoyed to see it re-released! If you like MJQ, you will LOVE this dazzeling performance!
This whole album is thrilling, but 'Really True Blues' is one of the best tracks in my entire collection.
