The Modern Jazz Quartet

Modern Jazz Quartet | MJQ in the Movies – [Import, 2010]

Digitally remastered collection of soundtrack works from the legendary Jazz combo. Considering their worldwide popularity, it’s surprising that No Sun In Venice (1957) and Odds Against Tomorrow (1959) are the only two full-length movies for which The Modern Jazz Quartet were commissioned to supply new, original musical soundtracks. The songs were composed by John Lewis and performed by the MJQ (Lewis, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath and Connie Kay).

Much later, film maker Jim Jamusch selected ‘Baden Baden’ a track from a 1957 session for inclusion in his 2003 episodic movie Coffee And Cigarettes. More recently, familiar MJQ recordings have been used in episodes of The Sopranos. Giant Steps.
