The "Modern Jazz Quartet" perform at Alexandra Palace, in London for the 1982 Capital Radio Jazz Festival.

Personnel:

Milt Jackson, vibes
John Lewis, piano
Percy Heath, bass
Connie Kay, drums

Connie Kay was a self taught percussionist who started out with Lester Young's quintet in the late '40s.

During this period as a session player he also at various times backed Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Stan Getz.

His phrasing and control on the cymbals made him the envy of many an up and coming percussionist.

In 1955 took what would be his longest enduring position with the "Modern Jazz Quartet", remaining until the group disbanded in 1974.
