Cold Spring Jazz Quartet Presents
So What is Modern Jazz?
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.
