CD Reviews

Excellent Intro to the MJQ
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent intro to the MJQ and its spare, sparkling jazzy sound. With almost an hour of music and alternating between well-known standards and more progressive tunes, this CD will make you happy. Great dinner and make-out music!"
Good Representative MJQ Compilation

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll echo another review and agree that this is an excellent introduction to the MJQ. I've heard it said that the MJQ is the best jazz group for classical music lovers. At the moment I'm listening to "I'll Remember April", a slow, bordering on melancholy tune at the start. I should note that I bought this when it originally appeared on cassette tape, and that "D and E" and "Green Dolphin Street" are probably my all-time favorite MJQ tunes.

The only drawback is that, at the time of this writing (August 2008), there were no sound samples on Amazon for this I'd advise checking out some of the other MJQ albums for samples. Note that some of the older MJQ albums don't always have the best sound quality, but this CD seems flawless.

As one's first MJQ CD, this is a good choice...I know it was mine. Five stars."
