The Cold Spring Jazz Quartet treats us to an evening that answers the musical question, "So What is Modern Jazz?" It's a capsule history of jazz since the 1940s, from swing (Duke Ellington's "Take the 'A' Train), to be-bop (Charlie Parker), Latin and bossa nova (A.C. Jobim's "Favela"),to hard bop (Art Blakey's "Moanin'") all the way to modal jazz (Miles Davis's "So What"), funk and fusion.
