Almeida and the MJQ play Bach
In 1964 guitarist Laurindo Almeida teamed up with the Modern Jazz Quartet for a classic album.
Later that year, Almeida and the MJQ appeared together on Great Britain’s Jazz 625 program, performing several selections.
Since Almeida and pianist John Lewis were always great fans of Bach, it was logical that they would perform some of his music.
Bach’s “Fugue In A Minor” receives a melodic and inventive treatment by the quintet which has bassist Percy Heath in a prominent role along with Almeida, Lewis and vibraphonist Milt Jackson.
