For seven summers, Philip and Stephanie Barber, the proprietors of the Inn, have been offering their guests panel discussions of jazz and folk music.... Complementing these discussions, the Barbers have staged jazz and folk music concerts in their Music Barn.... During the summer of 1956, the jazz program at Music Inn was broadened. The Modern Jazz Quartet was invited to be the Inn's 'jazz group in residence' for the last three weeks in August, not to perform (although they did give two concerts) but to have an opportunity to prepare new material, rehearse, explore new ideas and to take a physical and spiritual breather.... The musicians who took part were from all schools and periods of jazz: Wilbur de Paris, Dizzy Gillespie, Jimmy Giuffre and Teddy Charles; Pee Wee Russell, Max Roach, Bill Russo and Charlie Mingus; Sammy Price, Rex Stewart, Oscar Pettiford and Teo Macero and many others -John S. Wilson, liner notes, original 1956 release. John Lewis, piano; Milt Jackson, vibraphone; Percy Heath, bass; Connie Kay, drums; Jimmy Giuffre, clarinet on A Fugue for Music Inn, Serenade, and Fun.
