Cosmik Debris
When you’re tackling material that stretches from Bach to Jobim (with plenty of John Lewis thrown in for good measure), that kind of familiarity is essential, especially given the disciplined approach the MJQ always brought to a session. […]

All About Jazz
Almeida’s technically astounding and yet understated style is especially appropriate for the MJQ, which investigates a broad range of music without ostentation or even excessive volume. […]

While Silver’s dynamics are golden, Lewis’s and Jackson’s respective solos on piano and vibes pave the path for such jazz descendants as Stefon Harris and Jacky Terrasson. Definitely recommended. […]
