Probably the longest lasting of the bebop combos, the original lineup of the Modern Jazz Quartet (with Kenny Clarke on drums and Ray Brown on bass) began playing together in 1946 as Dizzy Gillespie's rhythm section. In 1951 they broke out on their own as the Milt Jackson Quartet. The very next year, Percy Heath took Brown's place and The Modern Jazz Quartet was born. In 1955 Connie Kaye took Clarke's place and the most constant formation of the group was set. The group has played (with the occasional hiatus due to Milt Jackson's solo projects) till Kaye's death in 1995 - and even then they continued with Albert Heath as his replacement.

This great LP ("The Modern Jazz Quartet Volume 2 European Concert" Atalntic ATL 1386 mono, white label promo "sample copy - not for sale" released 1962) has been signed by all four next to their pictures on the FRONT; Percy Heath, Connie Kaye, Milt Jackson & John Lewis. The album and jacket are both pristine except that the original owner has written his name on the back.

It's difficult to find autographs of all four members together, let alone on a vintage record in such magnificent condition.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
