The Modern Jazz Quartet

If it weren't for Take Five by The Dave Brubeck Quartet, The Golden Striker would have been  my favorite jazz composition.

I have a strong respect and interest for Milt Jackson as well as groups of musicians consisting of at least four members. 

For what it’s worth, The Modern Jazz Quartet is like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks or The Who of jazz music to me.

I didn’t care about the xylophone as an instrument until Milt Jackson.
