“Under The Jasmine Tree“, one of two MJQ albums recorded on The Beatles’ Apple label and the hardest for collectors to find. The most distinctive of John Lewis’ compositions on the LP is the theme of “Three Little Feelings, Pt. 1” (part of a three-movement suite), while, Milt Jackson is clearly in his element on the gospel like The Jasmin Tree.
An extremely rare LP even when it was in print — The Beatles fans ignored it, and MJQ fans couldn’t find it. Here it is in its original LP format.
