[MJQ TRIBUTE] Today’s many rich jazz-meets-classical experiments owe a lot to the Modern Jazz Quartet’s pioneering work from the early 1950s through the early ’90s. The masterful MJQ earned acclaim (and occasional squawks from purists) for sporting tuxes, employing “classical” techniques like fugues and, in general, insisting on respect for jazz’s equal status with other American music. But thanks principally to the great vibes of colossus Milt Jackson, it always managed to swing hard even while exploring pianist-composer John Lewis’ more cerebral concepts. In this PDX Jazz concert, a formidable West Coast foursome—featuring composer-pianist Darrell Grant playing Lewis; PDX big-band drummer Carlton Jackson in the Connie Kay/Kenny Clarke role; vibist Mike Horsfall swinging like Milt; and Bay Area bassist Marcus Shelby plucking like Percy Heath—provides a contemporary take on some of chamber jazz’s enduring classics.
