Morning Song – Blues In B Flat

February 20, 2016

If you didn’t already know that Modern Jazz Quartet musical director John Lewis’ ideals “…stem from what led to and became Count Basie’s band of the ’30s and ’40s“, you could have guessed from the first 15 seconds of “Blues In B Flat”.  There’s not an extra note to be heard, especially on Lewis’ (seemingly one-fingered, yet infinitely expressive) piano fills.  It’s the no-look pass of baroque chamber music.

Enjoy.
