Milt “Bags” Jackson was an American jazz vibraphonist. He is known for his swinging solos when he became a member of the Modern Jazz Quartet and his inclination for collaboration with other hard bop and post-bop musicians. The chapter tackles the time when Jackson was to record a brass orchestra comprising of four trumpets, three trombones, tuba, three French horns, and a rhythmic section. Musical scoring was provided by Melba Liston, a brass player, trombonist, as well as an arranger, working with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basic, and Quincy Jones. Liston is just one of the few women composers and instrumentalists who had penetrated successfully in any genre of jazz.
