Album

The Modern Jazz Quartet Plays George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess is an album by American jazz group the Modern Jazz Quartet performing the score to George Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess recorded in 1964-65 and released on the Atlantic label. Lavish in orchestration, shining with dexterity, it is no wonder that it is rare to find such a group that can emulate George. Acclaimed by Encyclopedia Britannica as the greatest American musical drama ever written, The Modern Jazz Quartet perform it at the highest level of creative flair to pay homage to a marvel of composition with the utmost degree of sincerity and respect. This is a piece that Gershwin took a full 11 months to compose and nine mont. The Modern Jazz Quartet at Music Inn, Vol. 1 - Jimmy Giuffre, A Modern Jazz Quartet, George Gershwin.

The Modern Jazz Quartet was formed in 1952 by Milt Jackson vibraphone, John Lewis piano, musical director, Percy Heath bass, and Kenny Clarke drums. Connie Kay replaced Clarke in 1955. Various of the members had played together backing other artists such as Dizzy Gillespie and Ray Brown, and in Jackson's own Quartet. Through their long existence, they have worked with Classical musicians and are known for incorporating elements of Classical music into jazz, being one of the most notable examples of the style called Third Stream.

Sample this album Artist Sample. This is the Modern Jazz Quartet version of the major tunes from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess first recorded in 1965, but still sounding a fresh these days as ever. From a more modern viewpoint, this is an exercise in Chamber Jazz, and lacks some of the dynamics and changes of character we have become accustomed to in more recent recordings. Great album, this was my first jazz LP and it still sounds as good as ever. Read more
