Product Notes

180 Pure Virging Vinyl LPs in Gatefold Packaging. Django contains some of the earliest sides that the first edition of The Modern Jazz Quartet (consisting of Milt Jackson, John Lewis, Percy Heath, and Kenny Clarke) recorded for Prestige Records. Initially, the combo was part of Dizzy Gillespie's influential backing band and after a change in drummers (to Connie Kay), they continued as one of the most sophisticated exponents of the post-bop era. The album presents the first version of Lewis' classic ballad "Django", which would become a standard. The tune was dedicated to the memory of the extraordinary guitarist Django Reinhardt, who had unexpectedly died in 1953.
