Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: MJQ Performs “Round Midnight”



The Modern Jazz Quartet’s combination of bebop, swing, blues, cool jazz and classical added up to a superb ensemble. Above, Milt Jackson, vibes; John Lewis, piano; Percy Heath, bass, and Connie Kay, drums, play Thelonious Monk’s jazz standard, “Round Midnight.”

The MJQ has performed beautiful music for decades.
