Format: Audio CD
This is a great recording of the Dave Brubeck quartet at Oberlin College in 1953. Its the first Brubeck album I ever bought, and whilst it predates the most famous of Brubeck's quartets, it has Paul Desmond on Alto and that makes its essential.

Great versions of How High the Moon and Perdido are perhaps highlights, but the whole album is superb. The contrast between Brubecks aggressive Piano solos and Desmonds flighty alto is amazing, yet somehow they were made for each other. The quality of musicianship is of the highest order, sometimes they throw in a bits of Bach (or Bach like), Brubeck gets into semi-modern classical music at some points and the rest of the time the band are just swinging.

I'm not familiar with the bass player and drummer but they play more than an adequate supporting role to two giants of Jazz.

This is undoubtedly one of the great jazz recordings, entirely done at the concert and one of the first times when the Brubeck Quartet played in public. Always an inspiring listen especially "How High the Moon" which in my opinion will never sound better from any jazz group.

Not worth the extra bits. 28 Aug. 2003
By Caponsacchi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is, IMO, the Brubeck Quartet's best recording ever (Paul is simply incredible), not to mention one of the most inspired examples of the art of jazz improvisation on record. For this reason, I thought it wise to retire my old copy and order this new, limited (10,000 copies), 50th anniversary edition with "20 Bit Mastering." My decision was influenced by the frequently miraculous engineering evident on recent Sony-Columbia reissues. But Fantasy records, not Sony, was responsible for this restoration. The only noticeable improvement on this "Jazz at Oberlin" edition over my old copy is slightly better definition of the walking bass lines. On the other hand, the drums are more muffled, the alto is overly "present" in relation to the other instruments, and the piano sounds thin and "dead," especially in the bass register.
If you don't have this album, by all means pick it up, but look for any edition at the best price. The musical content is what makes this one a winner.

Early Brubeck 20 Mar. 2013
By Terry Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This was recorded in 1953 and only Dave and Paul were part of the group. Gene and Joe would join later. But they were cooking, especially Paul. The last cut, How High the Moon, is amazing and Paul is at his best. This is "have to have" for Brubeck fans.
