Over to Hamburg this weekend for a broadcast concert from the 1984 New Jazz Festival featuring The Milt Jackson/Ray Brown Quartet.

While part of the legendary Modern Jazz Quartet, Milt Jackson played an extensive role as sideman and leader of his own groups throughout his long and prestigious career.

Teaming up with luminaries Ray Brown, along with Cedar Walton and Mickey Roker on this date, Milt Jackson supplies ample proof of his preeminence in Jazz.

Here’s what’s on the player:

    My band name is Blue Django, and as I’ve very recently (yesterday) decided to change my profile page to Midnite Jazz (the time I generally wind down after a gig), I thought I’d feature this same album (at least the videos of the evening). Thanks for being the impetus and inspiration, as I am discovering so much about Jazz through this one post. Here’s a link to Midnite Jazz Always wanted to be and a radio disc jockey, or an actor but for now this’ll have to do. 😉
