The Microscopic Septet is a jazz septet, founded in 1980 by saxophonist Phillip Johnston[1]. They played frequently in New York City, toured, and recorded until they disbanded in 1992. In late 2006, when their four albums were re-released along with previously unreleased material as two double CDs, they reformed for several performances. They performed again in the United States and Europe in December 2007.
