Nat Steele, vibraphonist and co-founder of the Bop Fest Jazz Festival, who grew up in Reading, brings his quartet home to pay homage to the Modern Jazz Quartet (MJQ) one of the most successful and influential groups of the 20th century. Nat will be joined by three of the brightest stars of the UK jazz scene to present ‘Portrait of the MJQ’, featuring such stellar favourites as ‘Django’, ‘Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise’, ‘Bags Groove’, and a complete performance of the four-movement ‘La Ronde Suite’.
The quartet’s debut album ‘Portrait of the MJQ’ was awarded Jazz Album of the Month by BBC Music Magazine and described as ‘creative brilliance’ in Peter Vacher’s 4 star Jazzwise review.
