Tribute to Milt Jackson and the Modern Jazz Quartet

When: Fri., April 1, 6-8 & 8:15-10 p.m. 2016

On April 1, the Ziad Jazz Quartet, with special guest vibraphonist Jon Metzger, pays tribute to one of jazz’s greatest and longest-running bands, the Modern Jazz Quartet. Founded in the bebop era, the MJQ were an outlier in the era of hard bop; they could swing like their peers, but were as experimental in their own way as the avant-garde acts that eventually journeyed away from the form’s restrictions.

Price: $14 for the public, $8 for museum members
