MJT + 3 is an album by MJT + 3, recorded in 1960 for Vee-Jay Records.

“In 1957, drummer Walter Perkins formed a quintet, the MJT + 3, that recorded four albums before breaking up in 1962. This CD reissue has the second record, and the first with the group’s most famous lineup of trumpeter Willie Thomas, altoist Frank Strozier, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Bob Cranshaw, and the leader on drums. … A fine example of MJT + 3’s work.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
