Offered for sale is a U.S. stereo pressing of Fontessa by the Modern Jazz Quartet.
About this copy: This copy of Fontessa is a 1960 U.S. stereo pressing on the blue/green Atlantic label of an album that was originally released in 1956.
The laminated cover is VG++ and close to M- with slight wear on the back cover.
The disc is VG++ and close to M- with a couple of faint sleeve scuffs, but no other marks on the vinyl and no spindle marks on the labels. Clean disc!
A nice copy of a terrific (and very well-recorded) MJQ LP.
Background: Released in 1956, Fontessa was the sixth album by the Modern Jazz Quartet and their first album for Atlantic.
This LP has a particularly strong all-around set by the Modern Jazz Quartet. While John Lewis’ “Versailles” and an 11-minute “Fontessa” show the seriousness of the group (and the influence of Western classical music), other pieces (such as “Bluesology,” “Woody ‘N You” and a pair of ballads) look toward the group’s roots in bop and permit the band to swing hard.
