Thankfully the recordings were made with minimal focus on processing correction, and instead great microphone technique in a great studio One designed for these intimate recordings. That is a preface to this remarkable quartet that seemed to be attached to each other by an invisible umbilical cord. A unity that can be heard as if it were a single musician. The simplicity yet the interweaving of improvisational and subtle exchanges might be heard as so musically, architecturally rehearsed that it would hard to duplicate. Yet having heard them live I can honestly say that the renditions of the same could be equally heard as on par with these recording, only fresh new improvisations and interactions. MJQ to me separates the true jazz aficionados from the ones who think it’s a cool without having a clue about really enjoying the experience.
One of those fabulous jazz records fromthe 1960s Golden Age. The MJQ is in fabulous form here! I listened in the DXD version, and it's a marvel. For jazz and especially audiophile jazz lovers, this one is a no-brainer.
