“European Concert” is a two-record set performed by the Modern Jazz Quartet in Sweden. The performance in general is very near to perfection. It is a like an anniversary set in that the Quartet was formed nearly ten years ago at a recording session for which its four original members were gathered. The quartet comprises of John Lewis, piano and musical director; Milt Jackson, vibraphone; Percy Heath, bass; and Connie Kay, drums. They discovered that they enjoyed playing together very much and they decided to continue. The remarkable feat is that they continue to play with the same passion and commitment to improvisation that they had at the start, and with an magnificent increase in expressive range and sensitive group interplay.
