Description
A major work of the period, this 1955 LP saw the passing of the torch from drummer Kenny Clarke to Connie Kay, who was a quartet stalwart for 40 more years. (The other three members were Milt Jackson on vibes, John Lewis on piano, and Percy Heath on bass.) Included are the standards “All of You,” "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise” as well as several compelling originals.

“Kay’s cooler approach, less overwhelming than Clarke’s could be, was ideal, and he sounds right from the word ‘go.'... Concorde sees Lewis trying to blend jazz improvisation with European counterpoint. It combines some superb fugal writing with swing.”—Penguin Guide

“The centerpiece is undoubtedly the four selections within the ‘Gershwin Medley.’ The interpretations of ‘Soon,’ ‘For You, For Me, Forevermore,’ ‘Love Walked In’ and ‘Our Love Is Here to Stay’ are nothing short of definitive. They collectively provide keen insight into the inner-workings of the MJQ and their collective abilities to improvise with purpose, rather than simply combining aimless solos. All manner of post-bop jazz listeners will find much to enjoy throughout.”—All Music Guide
