The Modern Jazz Quartet: "The Last Concert"
Intro and first set.Extro station ID and PSA's and 2nd set.PSA's station ID etc.Set up for the Jazz Feature.
Billed at "The Last Concert" and performed by the longest permanent group in Jazz music the Modern Jazz Quartet was going to disband. John Lewis, piano and musical director, vibist Milt Jackson, the group's major solo voice, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Connie Kay were going to go their separate ways. This great "last concert" took place at Avery Fisher Hall in New York on November 25,1974 and even the MJQ did some very special things with their music that night.It was recorded and occupies a special place in the MJQ's vast legacy of recordings. There is a special feel to this concert as on can imagine. As a postscript the MJQ reformed in 1981 and they continued to record and play engagements until the death in 1999 of vibist Milt Jackson. Jackson could never be replaced and that was the true end of the Quartet. Listen to these recordings to hear the MJQ at their best.
