"...When John Lewis composed the haunting theme Django , he gave jazz one of its most enduring compositions and, in the process, it defined the sound of the Modern Jazz Quartet ..."
- The Guardian

"... (Milt) Jackson in particular is a joy to behold. This is classic jazz in construction and execution ... it has become a classic on its own and the place to begin appreciating the many and great virtues of one of jazz's finest aggregates."
- All About Jazz

Django put the Modern Jazz Quartet on the international musical map, crystallizing the MJQ’s elegant approach to blending American improvisational and European classical music. Pianist and musical director John Lewis, with innovative vibist Milt Jackson as foremost soloist, spearheaded the MJQ’s trailblazing fusion work, from the blues to Basie, Bach to bop, with bassist Percy Heath and drummer Kenny Clarke. The first notes of the title piece, Lewis’s tribute to gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, firmly established a new jazz tone.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
