Modern Jazz SextetDizzy Meets Sonny (aka The Modern Jazz Sextet) ... LP
Verve, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $5.99
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

Modern Jazz Ensemble (John Lewis)Little David's Fugue ... LP
Verve, 1955. Near Mint- ... $1.99
A better-than-usual set of third stream jazz by John Lewis – quite possibly because it was recorded a bit earlier than the rest! As with similar sessions on Columbia and Atlantic, this one has Lewis working with Gunther Schuller on tracks for a larger group that seek to bridge the gap ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetComedy ... LP
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good Gatefold ... $1.99
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+ ... $38.99
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.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Modern Jazz QuartetDjango ... LP
Prestige, Mid 50s. Good ... $16.99
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 LP, Vinyl record album
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing with deep groove and RVG etch/stamp. Cover has wear, a split spine and partially split top & bottom seams.)

Modern Jazz QuartetLast Concert ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $4.99
Not really the last concert ever from the Modern Jazz Quartet – but a set that seemed so at the time, given that the group went their separate ways for a number of years! The record's got the combo in really top form – very much back to the basics of their early time on Atlantic ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz QuartetSheriff ... LP
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good+ ... $2.99
A moody early 60s set by the MJQ for Atlantic. Overall the group rolls and swings in a bit rougher mode than they do on their brighter efforts, but they still hit the sweet spot and swing when the mood fits! The record works best when Milt Jackson's vibes are let loose, as on the playful reading ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetThird Stream Music ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... $4.99
A seminal album that defined the fresh sound of a whole new generation in jazz – that "third stream" movement that was different from the cool jazz of the west coast, and the fire of New York! The style here follows that same mix of jazz and higher-concept elements you'd hear on ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz QuartetUnder The Jasmine Tree ... LP
Apple, 1968. Near Mint- ... $9.99
A nice one! The MJQ record for the Beatles' label, and the record's one of their most interesting in years! The production's pretty straight, but the group's playing in a cool open-ended style that still has elements of their earlier work, but which really makes things a lot more interesting than ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Modern Jazz Quartet with Sonny RollinsModern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn – Guest Artist Sonny Rollins ... LP
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint- ... $14.99
The Modern Jazz Quartet with a very noteworthy addition – the great Sonny Rollins, whose work on this record really makes it a cut above the usual MJQ outing for Atlantic! As on the quartet's previous Music Inn album with Jimmy Giuffre, the addition of a reed player really inflects their ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet With Jimmy GiuffreModern Jazz Quartet At Music Inn – Guest Artist Jimmy Giuffre ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good+ ... Just Sold Out!
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
(Black label pressing, with deep groove – in cover with white bar on side. Cover has some light aging – but this is a nice copy overall!)

Modern Jazz Quartet/Milt Jackson QuintetMJQ ... LP
Prestige, 1952/1954. Very Good- ... $9.99
Nice stuff from the early days of the MJQ – recorded back when Kenny Clarke was still playing drums with the group, and giving them a bit more of a bottom! One side of the record features material recorded from one of the quartet's first sessions – in late 1952, with the tracks "La ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Torolf MolgaardLone Rider (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Artist/SeriE.WOC (Italy), 1972. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $42.99
Some of the coolest use of trombone in jazz we've ever heard – a set that features multiple musicians on the instrument, but in ways that are different than any similar projects from the 50s or 60s! The style here is very loose and open, and the record steps along beautifully with electric ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious MonkCriss-Cross ... LP
Columbia, 1963. Very Good ... $9.99
A title and cover that beautifully illustrate the sharp-edged power of the Thelonious Monk quartet on Columbia – and a wonderful place to start if you're just digging Thelonious' music! The record is similar to the best of Monk's Columbia sides – in that it revisits older tunes and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(2 eye mono pressing. Cover has light wear and some stains.)

Thelonious MonkGenius Of Modern Music Vol 1 ... LP
Blue Note, Early 50s. Very Good+ ... $14.99
A great collection of Monk's 10" recordings for Blue Note – seminal not only for the label's commitment to a modernist bop ideal, but also for Monk's integration in the growing collection of top-level jazz players on the New York scene. The work's notable also for the fact that Monk's ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
