Discovered by Dizzy Gillespie (whose 40’s rhythm section left to form the initial line-up of the esteemed Modern Jazz Quartet) , Milt “Bags” Jackson was a preeminent vibes virtuoso and enjoyed over forty years as one-fourth of the MJQ (Modern Jazz Quartet).
Jackson also enjoyed decades of solo work for great jazz labels such as Savoy, Riverside and Atlantic and one of his crowning achievements occurred over a three day session booked for Riverside in 1962. Answering his “Invitation” were fellow all-stars Kenny Dorham, Jimmy Heath, Ron Carter and Tommy Flanagan. The trumpet/tenor tandem uniquely augment Jackson’s vibraphone, creating a driving, free-wheeling, classic blowing session.
