The Modern Jazz Quartet

This is jazz, very definitely, and I don’t know too much about it. The collection is the distillation of a box set called MJQ: 40 Years, and I got it from the West Kildonan Library. I used a boom box belonging to the managing partner of the firm where I worked to transfer it. His name was Dave, actually Dave – not David either, just Dave.

The Modern Jazz Quartet:

Vendome – Vendôme is the name of a metro station in Montreal.
Delaunay’s Dilemma
A Fugue For Music Inn
The Golden Striker
Romaine – A song about lettuce?
Odds Against Tomorrow - Sounds like James Bond, but it's not.
Exposure – Works on so many levels…
Animal Dance
Concorde – A song about a jet?
Fugue In A Minor – Bach
Alexander’s Fugue
Monterey Mist – Is this about California or Mexico?
Greensleeves – Always good for a new interpretation
Misty Roses – By Tim Hardin
The Jasmine Tree
For Ellington – A tribute to the Duke
