The Hobart Jazz Quartet will highlight the music of John Lewis and the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) – a Jazz group established in 1952 that played music influenced by classical, cool Jazz, blues and bebop. The MJQ performed over a 40-year span with only one personnel change, and during that period carved their own niche by specialising in elegant, restrained, sophisticated, improvised music, with a strong blues reference.
For this concert a quartet of Tasmania’s leading contemporary Jazz musicians will present a program of some of the better known MJQ compositions – “Django” “Skating in Central Park” “Bags Groove” “Milano” and more.
