✨✧ Liudas Mockunas NuClearDrop It ... CD
No Business (Lithuania), 2011. Used ... $7.99
Subtle sounds from the NuClear trio of reedman Liudas Mockunas – a player who really hits some amazing modes in the set! Liudas plays tenor, soprano, and bass saxophones – but often blows with this fluid sort of sound – one that moves forward in these almost circular waves of ... read more CD

Modern Jazz SextetModern Jazz Sextet ... LP
Norgran, 1956. Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
That's the Modern Jazz Sextet – not the Modern Jazz Quartet – although the group definitely borrows a bit of energy from the MJQ, and some personnel too! The group was only put together for this date – and combines the subtle touches of MJQ members John Lewis on piano and Percy ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow label Norgran pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove! Cover has some wear, a split spine with moisture stains on the back, along the opening.)

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetComedy ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $9.99
A great early 60s set from Modern Jazz Quartet! This one marked the then growing sophistication in the sound of the Modern Jazz Quartet – a concept album based on themes and characters from the Italian tradition of commedia dell'arte. The music is served up in gentle sound poems that have a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetConcorde ... LP
Prestige, 1955. Very Good+ ... $33.99
Even at this early point in their career, the Modern Jazz Quartet were plenty proud of their relation to and reception in Paris – almost rubbing their international fame in the faces of other American combos with the title and cover of this record! The set's still got the quartet at their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(NYC 50th street label, with RVG etch and deep groove! Record and cover are great – save for a few inches of seam splitting in a top corner of the cover.)

Modern Jazz QuartetDjango ... CD
Prestige/OJC, Mid 50s. Used ... $2.99
A stone classic from the Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded back when the group still featured Kenny Clarke in its membership, but already with some of the more serious, somber tones that would mark the combo's more famous years! Tracks here are from a variety of sessions in 1953, 1954, and 1955 ... read more CD

Modern Jazz QuartetEuropean Concert ... LP
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $6.99
A double-length live set from the legendary Modern Jazz Quartet – recorded in Scandinavia in 1960, almost as a summation of the group's growing genius in the 50s! The tunes are a mix of John Lewis and Milt Jackson originals, plus other songs all given the wonderful MJQ twist – ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetFontessa ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good- ... $3.99
A classic set of high-class jazz from the MJQ – one that shows John Lewis' growing compositional skills, and the band's always tight ability to work in a compressed chamber format.

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetLive At The Lighthouse ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1967. Used ... $9.99
An overlooked later gem from the Modern Jazz Quartet on Atlantic – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse, and one with a funkier tone than some of the group's earlier work for the label! Milt Jackson seems to be a bit more in charge of the sound on this set – as the tracks have that ... read more CD

Modern Jazz QuartetLonely Woman ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
Truly one of the Modern Jazz Quartet's greatest albums – and a set that has an edge and a darkness that's missing from some of their other Atlantic records! Part of the reason for this may be the group's fantastic reading of Ornette Coleman's "Lonely Woman" – a killer moody ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetMusic From Odds Against Tomorrow ... CD
United Artists, 1959. Used ... $9.99
A brilliant album through and through – not just a standout from the late 50s years of the Modern Jazz Quartet, but also a compelling soundtrack composed entirely by pianist John Lewis!

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetQuartet (2016 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Savoy, Mid 50s. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Early and brilliant work by the MJQ – recorded at a time when the combo's idea was quite unique, and when its execution was still filled with a lot of creative energy! The group, of course, features the core duo of Milt Jackson and John Lewis – and bass chores are handled by either ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Apple, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $9.99
Beautifully spacey work from the Modern Jazz Quartet – a record that more than earns its enigmatic title! The session's an odd one – in that the MJQ are recording for the Beatles' famous Apple label – but that fact is also one of the best aspects of the record, as it seems to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet/Quartetto Di Milano/HungarianQuartet Is A Quartet Is A Quartet ... CD
Atlantic/Wounded Bird, 1964. New Copy ... $1.99 11.98
The title's a bit misleading, because while the 3 groups on the session are all quartets, they're hardly similar in the associative way the record assumes! Side one features 4 tracks by the Modern Jazz Quartet – re-recordings of a few classics, plus one new one for the set – titles ... read more CD

✨✧ Modern Jazz Quartet With Jimmy GiuffreModern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn – Guest Artist Jimmy Giuffre ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good- ... $3.99
A great addition to the Modern Jazz Quartet – as the clarinet of Jimmy Giuffre brings a sharp modern edge to the record! The album's similar to the other MJQ Music Inn date with Sonny Rollins – and shows how the addition of a reed player can really unlock new colors, tones, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
