The first Modern Jazz Quartet sessions recorded for release as a 12-inch LP also featured the debut of Connie Kay, who replaced Kenny Clarke on drums. The expanded recording time afforded by the new configuration allowed the group to put together a program approximating a live performance: "Ralph's New Blues" leads off, a showcase for the easy-swinging soul of vibraphonist Milt Jackson and the ever-elegant fulcrum of the quartet, pianist John Lewis. Percy Heath sets down an eloquent walking bass pattern or repeats the melody in a rondo format, while Kay adds subtle pulse and appropriat punctuation. Lewis and Jackson also display remarkable empathy on the ballads "All of You" and "Softly as in a Morning Sunrise." The sprightly set-closing title track employs all of the unit's strengths. --John Swenson

By A Customer on April 27, 2004
Format: Audio CD
This underrated album is an Apollonian masterpiece. It balances the cool, formalist approach to jazz (that one expects from MJQ) with a genuine swinging impulse. The recording features two originals (by Jackson and Lewis) framing a set of superb and superbly played standards. "I'll Remember April," transformed into a hard-swinging scherzo, is a real stand-out (although Erroll Garner's version from a few months later remains definitive in my book). The concluding title track is Lewis's tour-de-force, a complex jazz fugue that lends the session a strong feeling of culmination. Throughout, the album delivers subtle counterpoint ("Softly" begins by quoting from Bach's Musical Offering) and thoughtful structure; it really rewards carefully attention. If you like your jazz on the cool, cerebral side, or if you are coming to jazz from the world of classical music, this album should be mandatory listening. But the music isn't austere: in addition to being substantive, it's a lot of fun.

The MJQ at their very best. Recording is from the fifties with a little hiss etc.

It's always been my claim that nobody doesn't like the Modern Jazz Quartet, even including those people who feel that they "don't like jazz" (they're just kidding themselves, right?). And even accounting for the general sharpness, intellect and melancholy on display in the usual MJQ album, this one is a standout. There is nothing her to not love.
