The Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) was a jazz combo established in 1952 that played
music influenced by classical, cool jazz, blues, and bebop. For most of its
history the Quartet consisted of John Lewis (piano), Milt Jackson (vibraphone),
Percy Heath (double bass), and Connie Kay (drums). The group grew out of the
rhythm section of Dizzy Gillespie's big band from 1946 to 1948, which consisted
of Lewis and Jackson along with bassist Ray Brown and drummer Kenny Clarke.
