Morning Song – Blues In A Minor

February 13, 2016

The Modern Jazz Quartet’s “Blues In A Minor” starts slow, almost like the band members are just waking up, stretching, limbering up their muscles. Kind of like a veteran basketball team at the end of a long road trip, playing their fourth game in five nights. Can these old guys even find the groove, let alone get into it?

Most emphatically, yes.

So much so, that by the time (about 5 minutes in) the rest of the band cuts out for Percy Heath’s bass solo, they’re playing so smoothly and beautifully together that they could school this year’s Golden State Warriors…even when they’re operating at #PeakSteph.

Enjoy.
