The Modern Jazz Quartet was a major jazz institution. From the start, their sound and style was in place. Mixing together the influences of Bach and Charlie Parker, with pianist John Lewis' basic blues playing reminiscent of Count Basie and Jackson adding a great deal of soul to the music, the MJQ was always a unique group. The majority of the group's existence was spent recording for the Atlantic label where they were one of the most successful jazz acts of the '50s and '60s. 1960's strapping Pyramid is anchored by inventive takes of Lewis' opener "Vendome" and standard "Django," Ray Brown's title cut, Jim Hall's "Romaine" and driven home with sizzling versions of "How High The Moon" and "It Don't Mean A Thing."
