Allmusic:
The Modern Jazz Quartet never actually recorded for Blue Note but their United Artists date was reissued on this Blue Note CD. The MJQ (vibraphonist Milt Jackson, pianist John Lewis, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Connie Kay) perform six of Lewis's compositions which were used in the film Odds Against Tomorrow. Best known is "Skating in Central Park" but all of the selections have their memorable moments and it is good to hear this classic unit playing such fresh material.

Tracks
-1. "Skating in Central Park" - Lewis - 6:07
-2. "No Happiness for Slater" - Lewis - 5:18
-3. "A Social Call" - Lewis - 4:45
-4. "Cue, No. 9" - Lewis - 5:00
-5. "A Cold Wind Is Blowing" - Lewis - 7:29
-6. "Odds Against Tomorrow" - Lewis - 3:33

Personnel

Milt Jackson - vibraphone
Percy Heath - bass
Connie Kay - drums
John Lewis - piano

I know most of the MJQ recordings, but this one is new to me.

Classic MJQ music.

Thanks so much for posting.

I don't believe MJQ ever released a subpar recording. This one is new to me as well. Looking forward to indulging myself!!

Thanks!!
