40th Anniversary Concert!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"From their roots as the rhythm section in Dizzy Gillespie's immortal big band, the MJQ helped bring respectability to Jazz by interacting with classical ensembles and playing concerts at prestigious venues, but always leaving plenty of space for bluesy and swinging improvising. The 40th Anniversary Concert is no exception, featuring the group accompanied by a chamber string orchestra. With John Lewis, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath and Mickey Roker. #1350 (58 min, Hi-Fi Stereo)"

"Well done. It really catches the flavor of the quartet and allows them to try sophisticasted inter-action with a classical orchestra."
