Through some other collector friends I’ve learned a bit about European pressings of US releases–but it’s still pretty new to me. From what I can gather this is the “original” UK pressing of 1957’s The Modern Jazz Quartet (Atlantic 1265). It’s a clean copy that sounds excellent and the music is fantastic. Milt Jackson (vb), John Lewis (p), Percy Heath (bs), and Connie Kay (dr) are in fine form as always–Jackson’s “Bags Groove” is included below.
