Original review: “Long considered one of, if not the classic album from the Modern Jazz Quartet, European Concert defines them simultaneously as a recording entity as well as a working band. MJQ presented jazz in the context of a formally structured environment, much like a chamber group in the classical context. As this album perhaps more than any of their studio recordings exemplifies, they used concepts of time, space, meter, rhythm, and changes to weave together a seamless whole, where melody grounded the improvisation but never really restricted it.” - Thom Jurek

The Modern Jazz Quartet’s classic original albums European Concert Vol.1 & Vol.2 (Atlantic LP1385 and LP1386) in their entirety. Recorded during concerts in Stockholm on April 11 & 13, 1960, and Gothenburg on April 12, these Swedish performances present the inimitable magic of the MJQ in front of live audiences.
