Over to Germany this week for a broadcast concert given at Tübingen on June 22, 1986 by The Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ). Probably one of the most distinctive ensembles in Jazz, MJQ enjoyed one of the longest runs of any Jazz group and were universally hailed by critics and audiences all over the world for their innovative style and influential contribution. The individual members were highly regarded soloists in their own right, working with some of the greatest names in Jazz. As a quartet they were unequaled and this set, recorded later on in their careers, still gives ample evidence of what a truly unique and mesmerizing group they were.
