MASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL ANALOG TAPES

Compiling recordings from 1948-1952 that Milt Jackson made with the Modern Jazz Quartet (+ Lou Donaldson on sax), and The Thelonious Monk Quartet, this release highlights the bebop brilliance of vibraphonist master Jackson. Inspired by Lionel Hampton, Jackson took up the vibes at age 16 and was performing in Dizzy Gillespie's group by age 22. It was in Gillespie's group that the foundations of one of the most well known and best-selling jazz groups, The Modern Jazz Quartet, were laid in the ground.

That group, who recorded countless albums, first recorded in 1952, and these are some of their earliest recordings. Essential music from a jazz master, accompanied by some of the brightest artists in jazz history.
