Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

Under the Jasmin Tree is an album by American jazz group the Modern Jazz Quartet featuring performances recorded in 1967 and released on the Apple label.[2] The album was the fourth release on The Beatles' new label and the MJQ were the only jazz act to record for the label.[1]


The Allmusic review stated "The program is more or less standard, poised, painstakingly structured, gently swinging MJQ fare, the group's contrapuntal interplay as telepathic as ever".[1]
