  • Amazing and talented band. Very cool sound!
  • The more I listen to these guys the more amazed I am.
  • Excellent!
  • My father's turntable spun these guys all the time while I was growing up, so I feel like I know Milt and the fellas a bit.
  • The vibes are so cool jaja.
  • Shame that these guys aren't more popular; both in real life and on last.fm.
  • They also acknowledge the great moments of the big bands and the master in chief Duke Ellington in the album dedicated to him. Unfortunately, some descriptions like the above are just press release from people who never really heard their work.
  • MJQ is part of a ramification of the bebop era, once some brilliant musicians started to assemble smaller combos, and this was one of the most technical, artistic and innovative sets. The term "Modern" is exactly that tentative to produce new frontiers for jazz. The Atlantic/Rhino Atlantic years produce some of the most innovative and avant garde jazz heard until then, albums like "Piramid", "The Comedy", "Three Windows" are truly remarkable. They never forgot the DNA of Jazz and blues, and the live recordings at the Carneige Hall (The Last Concert, Blues at Carnegie Hall) are masterpieces. The blues verve is noticeable in so many ways, but one of the most interesting is the "tempo" they worked, with inspiring improvisations at heart touching use of silence.
  • Well, it is creepy what they have done in the tags and albums. This is nothing of smooth or cool jazz. Cool Jazz is honestly just the way some romantic but ungroovy guy got their way to play in the East Coast, with all respect and love I have for Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan.
  • niesamowite nuty
  • Love them truly and honestly. Amazing group, really.
  • Just my all time favourite. Great group.
  • awsome!

  • And someone tagged them as "garage punk" too. wtf?
  • I'm more confused that this is tagged as "stoner rock". Funny, though.

  • Smooth Jazz never sounded so good. *snerk*

  • It is appalling to see such marvelous music tagged as "smooth" jazz. I guess that's what happens when you stop teaching music appreciation.

  • This is more on the cool side, not smooth or acid... People these days.
  • Django - lovely track. Could they swing.
  • They tagged smooth jazz because they are ignorant.
