Album Remarks & Appraisals:

The MJT Project is a ten-piece modern jazz group consisting of professional jazz musicians, primarily based in Nashville, Tennessee. This group presents an exciting new approach to contemporary music. With six low brass instrumentalists and a four-piece rhythm section, the MJT Project builds upon over fifty years of tradition utilizing the euphonium and tuba as lead instruments in jazz. This tradition started in the late 1940s with the birth of the cool and the collaboration between Miles Davis and Bill Barber on a number of recordings arranged by Gil Evans, and was extended through the 1950s by Harvey Phillips (the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra, Gil Evans, etc.) and Don Butterfield (Clark Terry, Dizzy Gillespie, Charles Mingus and others).
