Biography

Dave Brubeck was one of the most active and popular musicians in both the jazz and classical worlds. With a career that spanned over six decades, his experiments in odd time signatures, improvised counterpoint, polyrhythm and polytonality remain hallmarks of innovation.

Born into a musical family in Concord, California-- his two older brothers were also professional musicians--he began ... Read more in Amazon's Dave Brubeck Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for any Brubeck fan 2 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is solo piano work of Dave Brubeck, similar to other CDs that he has released (Dave Brubeck plays and plays and plays, Just you, Just Me). Like these other CDs, this one also amazes the listener that such music could come from one instrument, like the title says, one alone. As a pianist, it is inspiring to hear variations and interpretations without use of a trio.
This CD has all kinds of styles. Some songs use a stride bass, others are bitonal (possibly polytonal, my ear isn't that sharp) and other jazz arranging techniques are employed as well. Over all, the CD is a must for any Brubeck fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dave shows his gifts with this special album 15 July 2002
By Ben Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dave Brubeck in his quartet is a majestic thing: his vital improvising, his off-kilter yet dead-on rhythmic sense and his wonderful songwriting and arranging is always on display for us. Yet, Dave doesn't get the chance in his group (especially his current one) to display his full range of pianistic gifts; he's got too many good musicians to compete with! On this album, Dave's special keyboard touch can finally be heard. Sure, we've all heard the criticisms before: Dave can't swing, he just pounds, has a limited technique, etc. Nonsense. People said the same things about Miles and Monk. Here Dave shows the full flow of his musical ideas on his beloved instrument. Just like Monk and the Duke, Dave uses his piano for composing, too. I get the same special feeling when I listen to any of these three masters alone at a piano. It's the sound of their concepts, completely unfettered from the absence of other musicians. Here, Brubeck's wondeful sense of harmony and his musical command of polytonality (as opposed to gimmicky command) are especially evident. It's Dave, one alone, with no worries...in complete command.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 7 Sep 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD really shows off Dave's under-rated piano-playing abilities. To all who say that he just pounds or doesn't swing, I tell them to check this CD out. It's beautiful, expressive, and all-in-all excellent. :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars get "Just You, Just Me" instead 24 Dec 2012
By jsa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"One Alone" doesn't compare well with Dave Brubeck's prior solo effort, Just You Just Me. It's not that the selection of songs isn't interesting, it's just that Brubeck's slow amble through nearly each one isn't terribly inspiring. On the other hand "Just You, Just Me," recorded six years earlier (1994), finds the pianist sharply focused and full of all kinds of inventive ideas; and while his treatments for both albums were no doubt thoroughly worked out in advance, they sound fresh and spontaneous in "Just You, Just Me" versus stale and almost dirge-like on "One Alone." If you want to hear Brubeck solo, the earlier album, which is a real gem, is the one to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Harmony - Exceptional work! 16 Sep 2010
By Flavio Cipparrone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some people will not appreciate Brubeck's solo CDs because
they are solo piano albuns without a "fast and continuous" swing (sometimes).

But pay attention to the harmonization: Very sophisticated.

In fact, it is because of this harmonization that I am rating this CD with 10 stars.

A masterpiece!
