Pinnerjazz: The Modern Jazz Quartet – February 23, 2013

pinner_jazzSaturday 23 February 2013 – THE MODERN JAZZ QUARTET [MJQ] CELEBRATION with special guest ALAN BARNES

It was the late Michael Garrick who thought to re-examine the repertoire of the Modern Jazz Quartet, one of the finest small groups ever to grace the concert stage. Sadly Mike died before he could fully capitalise on the project but happily for us, his colleagues are committed to continuing. With the blissfully inventive Jim Hart on vibes, bassist Matt Ridley, the ever-alert Steve Brown on drums and Barry Green on piano, they honour the spirit if not the letter of the MJQ’s distinctive music. Alan Barnes joins the group on tenor to complete what will be a miniature master-class in swing.
