Sealed 2LP Stereo Gatefold (Label Variation Unknown, But We Believe This Heavy Package Is The Blue & Green Label First Issue) “Long Considered One Of, If Not THE Classic Album From The Modern Jazz Quartet, European Concert Defines Them Simultaneously As A Recording Entity As Well As A Working Band. MJQ Presented Jazz In The Context Of A Formally Structured Environment, Much Like A Chamber Group In The Classical Context. Within The Band, The Groove Of Milt Jackson's Vibes Met The Solid Swing Of Connie Kay's Drums, The Funky Strut Of Percy Heath's Bass, And The Elegant Classicism Of John Lewis's Piano. The MJQ Were Able, In A Context That Pushed At Jazz's Boundaries From The Outside, To Create A Music That Swung Without Edges Or Fragmented Harmonic Structures. The Show Included The Finest Moments Of Their Early Recording Career In A Live Setting. One Listen To "Django" Will Make Your Head Swim, With Its Sparse Rhythmic Texture That Is Still Driving And Lewis' Rag Melody Line When It Encounters The Pure Stretch Of The Polytonal Rhythms Jackson Is Laying Down. If It Weren't For Heath The Entire Thing Would Become Unglued, Because He Was The Hinge On This Set. Top Recommendation.” Thom Jurek, AMG.
