The last date listed for Music of the Modern Jazz Quartet was Saturday April 16, 2011 / 9:30pm.
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 Lewis Nash, NEA Jazz Master pianist Kenny Barron, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, and bassist Peter Washington shows in this program of MJQ classics like “Django” and "Bag’s Groove.”
