The first Modern Jazz Quartet album to feature drummer Connie Kay (replacing Kenny Clarke), 1955's CONCORDE finds the ensemble easing into its long-running lineup, rounded out by vibes player Milt Jackson, pianist John Lewis, and bassist Percy Heath. In addition to originals by Jackson (the light, lilting "Ralph's New Blues") and Lewis (the bright, upbeat title track), the MJQ offers up an excellent selection of standards, most notably a fast-paced take on "I'll Remember April" that has Kay earning his stripes with some impressive cymbal work.
