There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I am an old MJQ fan and have most of their albums. I bought this one because I like the Swingle Singers and especially because they had a version of Three Windows which I consider to be John Lewis's masterpiece. The song is from the score he wrote for the movie No Sun in Venice. It is a French Film and I can't remember the name in French. Anyway, I was thrilled to hear the version on this album.
This singers voices worked, but did not overpower the delicate melody of Three Windows. This song was worth the price of the album. None of the MJQ are still alive, but their music will live forever. One person found this helpful. Swingle Singers meet the Modern Jazz Quartet. What more can one ask? Format: Audio CD. Well, great Donna Summer - Try Me, I Know We Can Make It making, a perfect album, a great CD, and the kind of listening experience you just cannot have anymore, not these days.
But this came out at a time when the music business was an adventuresome place, when artists of all shapes, sizes, colors, styles, could make their From Decay Of Dust - Open Hell - Revelation and find some kind of audience.
Today we're just not in that place - the almighty dollar dictates everything and people are no longer able to eject themselves from their little comfort bubbles - it's kind of nauseating. Meanwhile, if you don't know this album or this kind of music, it's high time you did something about, don't you think?
What happened of significance in September in Paris? As the liner notes recount, the two groups had met as early as on the occasion of a concert given by the MJQ in Paris and plans for doing something together had immediately ensued, but both groups' busy schedule did not make it possible for them to come together for recording sessions until two years Terje, Jesper & Joachim - Terje, Jesper & Joachim. The tracks alternate between original compositions all by John Lewis and improvisations on themes of baroque composers, mostly Bach Air for G string, from the Suite no.
But even the original compositions are Bach-inspired, and were among Lewis' first confrontations with the forms typical of Bach that fascinated him throughout his life: the two or three-part invention and the fugue.
There he describes the history of his encounters with Bach "I must say that the counterpuntal music of J. Well, here, for the CD reissue, "all tracks [were] newly Vendome - Modern Jazz Quartet* - Live And At Its Best digitally from the original tapes under the personal supervision of John Lewis on October 2, at Phonogram Studio in Tokyo", and I hear no such problems of balance.
In fact, the recordings sound great, and there is no telling they are more than years old. Obviously Vendome - Modern Jazz Quartet* - Live And At Its Best don't know how it sounded on the original album, but on the remixing, due in part to the timbral characteristics of the instrument it rings!
After the piano picks up and develops the theme. The compositions are slow moving and sensuous, but it means also that the demands made on the Swingle Singers are much less challenging and inventive than on their solo albums. Only Alexander's Fugue track 6 is slightly more dynamic. But overall this is the kind of disc you can put on as background music during a cocktail - which arguably can be both its appeal and its limitation.
And I see that the computer wizzards at Amazon have automatically linked the reviews of all the entries of this disc, including its later, reissue. So, if you are reading the reviews as posted under the reissue, be aware that my comments concerning sonics and liner notes pertain to the original CD reissue, ASIN BWO, UPCand I don't know if something has changed in this respect with the reissue. At the time of writing it is the original CD reissue that sells cheapest anyway, so potential Psychoactivated - Lab 4 / Silicon Based Life* - Psychoactivated / Multiband may want to check the best price.
Never better!! For all Vendome - Modern Jazz Quartet* - Live And At Its Best of you, who - like myself - enjoy Swingle Singers' approach to music in this very competent combination of jazz and classical music - this record is a must.
