October 28, 1957 NDR Studio Hanover
Balancing the precision and form of the classical tradition with both the blues aesthetic and bebop elements, John Lewis (piano), Milt Jackson (vibraphone), Percy Heath (bass) and Connie Kay (drums) played over eighty European concerts in 1957-58, and received a euphoric response wherever they performed.
The programme on this CD is drawn from the groups set of the time and is an excellent summation of their music. Included are standards from the 'Great American Songbook', such as "All the Things You Are", and two sections from film scores composed by John Lewis, "Venice" and "The Golden Striker". Also from the pianist's pen is "Vendome", an episodic "Jazz Fugue", and Bluesology, a showcase for Milt Jackson's virtuosity.
