The most often
recorded standard ever


This is during the more sporadic, late touring of the Modern Jazz Quartet in the '90s – a group notable for their restrained, elegant playing. Though they were initially an offshoot project of Gillespie collaborators.

Written by Thelonious Monk in 1944, “'Round Midnight” has become quite the standard. Of all the standards composed by jazz musicians, this is the most often recorded ever. Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis' take on the song led to some interesting intercreative commentary – with Miles basing his version on Gillespie's (and titled it “'Round About Midnight.”)


John Lewis, piano
Milt Jackson, vibraphone
Ray Brown, bass
Connie Kay, drums
