American jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson, born New Year’s Day 1923, was usually considered a bebop player, although he performed in several jazz idioms. He is especially remembered for his cool swinging solos as a member of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and his penchant for collaborating with hard bop and post-bop players. A very expressive player, Jackson differentiated himself from other vibraphonists in his attention to variations on harmonics and rhythm. He was particularly fond of the twelve-bar blues at slow tempos. On occasion, Jackson also sang and played piano. This 4CD set contains eight original albums by Milt Jackson, all made between 1961 and 1963 for the Riverside label. Featuring some of the best music Milt Jackson ever recorded as bandleader, the compilation is a fine starting point for newcomers to this master jazz man’s art, and remains too an ideal collection for those already seasoned.
