Short intro

The Comedy is an album by American jazz group the Modern Jazz Quartet featuring performances recorded in 1960 and 1962 and released on the Atlantic label. The tracks, which form a suite of seven movements by the Modern Jazz Quartet's pianist and musical director John Lewis, were inspired by characters from Commedia dell'arte, and followed on from his first depiction of the theatrical form on the title track of the 1956 album Fontessa. Lewis later recalled: The main thing about the commedia dell'arte. This is the type of album that led many bop purists to criticize the Modern Jazz Quartet and John Lewis in particular for being overly influenced by Western classical music. This album has seven of Lewis' compositions, episodic works arranged in a suite that portrays characters from a fictional Italian comedy based in the 1500s. Singer Diahann Carroll guests fairly effectively on La Cantatrice. Songs in album The Modern Jazz Quartet - The Comedy 1962. The Modern Jazz Quartet - Spanish Steps.
