“Swinging Sophistication” – Tribute to the Modern Jazz Quartet featuring Vibraphonist Jon Metzger, Vibraphonist Milt “Bags” Jackson and Pianist John Lewis, Bassist Percy Heath, and drummer Connie Kay, as the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ). MJQ created a chamber jazz style that highlighted the lyrical tension between Lewis’s mannered, but roomy, compositions and Jackson’s unapologetic swing. Long known for their complex and iconic compositions and arrangements, the vast majority of the MJQ’s arrangements have never been published, consequently most of their music has never been heard live outside of their own performances. Working over the course of several months Noel Freidline transcribed a full program of the MJQ’s music, including classics such as “Concorde,” “Vendome,” “Softly As In a Morning Sunrise,” and “Summertime.”
