iTunes Review

Filling our heads with images of sharp suits and swank cocktail parties, this 1955 release from The Modern Jazz Quartet is cool jazz at its best. From Milt Jackson's tinkling vibraphone on pianist John Lewis' sublime title track to the nimbly frenetic epic "La Ronde Suite"—in which the players hand off solos to one another with almost magical agility—these guys are as sophisticated as it gets when it comes to post-bop. They're even lovably playful on tunes like the bouncy "One Bass Hit."

They next came together in 1951, recording as the Milt Jackson Quartet. In 1952, with Percy Heath taking Brown's place, the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) became a permanent group.
