AllMusic Review by

The exhaustive four-disc anthology The Golden Age: Complete Atlantic Recordings 1956-1960 brings together all of the albums recorded by the influential jazz group from its time on Atlantic Records. A sophisticated chamber jazz ensemble centered around pianist John Lewis, the Modern Jazz Quartet became known for its compositional style, informed as much by classical music as by the swinging jazz tradition.
