Wikipedia : This day (March 29, 2001), in New York City, died John Aaron Lewis, an American jazz pianist, composer and musical director of the Modern Jazz Quartet.

@Jazclass : Completely self-sufficient and self-confident, he knows exactly what he wants from his musicians, his writing and his career, and achieves it with an unusual, quiet firmness, coupled with modesty and a complete indifference to critical reaction.

@allmusic : Possessor of a cool piano style that (like Count Basie’s) makes every note count, Lewis with the MJQ has long helped make jazz look respectable to the classical music community without watering down his performances.

@last.fm : In 1951, Lewis, Milt Jackson, Clarke, and Ray Brown formed the Milt Jackson Quartet. Percy Heath replaced Brown on bass, and the Modern Jazz Quartet was born. Lewis was its musical director and pianist until it disbanded in 1974 and after it reorganized in 1981
