Live In Paris 1960-1961

Modern Jazz Quartet - Live In Paris 1960-1961

With its blend of swing, bop, cool and soul jazz, the classically inspired Modern Jazz Quartet, or MJQ, is probably one of the most famous jazz quartets in history and, driven by vibraphonist Milt Jackson and pianist John Lewis, the group reached its artistic heights in the Sixties. Worshipped throughout the world for its elegant music, the MJQ played jazz with a smooth exterior but devastating swing_ Taken from concerts played in their tours in 1960 and `61, this 3CD set contains unreleased material by a quartet of legend. Patrick FREMEAUXThe Live in Paris collection by Michel BrilliE allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colours of the period. Patrick FREMEAUX & Gilles PETARD
