The Music of the Modern Jazz Quartet - April 15-16 - Jazz at Lincoln Center


Sign in to view read count
For nearly 50 years they were the greatest of all jazz super-groups, in which the deep, classically-inspired compositional style of pianist John Lewis was brilliantly counterbalanced by the blues-drenched approach of vibraphonist Milt Jackson. Yet the distinctive music of The Modern Jazz Quartet survives even the remarkable men who created it, as drummer/music director Lewis Nash, NEA Jazz Master pianist Kenny Barron, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington, and special guest guitarist Jim Hall show in this program of MJQ classics like “Django" and “Bag's Groove."
