For many decades, give or take the odd interruption, the Modern Jazz Quartet became a popular fixture on the worldwide jazz scene, their own special brand of music bringing a unique touch of sophistication to a genre often based on sounds carrying a rawer edge. The foursome created a 'chamber music'-like approach to their repertoire, much of it penned by pianist John Lewis, although this polite stance often gave way to exciting, swinging excursions driven by the blues-drenched vibraphone of Milt Jackson.
The Beatles. The Byrds. Simon & Garfunkel. The Hollies. The Beach Boys. Crosby, Stills & Nash. Not a bad line up of iconic rock history makers and with something else in common. All have acknowledged the enormous influence of the Everly Brothers on their careers. Whilst the Everlys didnt invent close harmony singing they did turn it into a fine art. Hits such as Cathys Clown, Walk Right Back, Bye Bye Love and All I Have To Do Is Dream resonate through the years and can still send a shiver up the spine. In the first ever Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inauguration Don & Phil were amongst the inductees. They changed popular music forever and form one of the foundation stones of rock, pop and rock and roll music. This wonderful Double CD contains all the hits and more. Enjoy!
