I have in excess of twenty albums by Dave Brubeck and his various groups, but this has to be my favourite.
This concert recording almost serves as a swan song of respected saxophonist Paul Desmond, who would die four years later from lung cancer. Some of Desmond's playing is some of the most lyrical I have heard, in particular a remarkable four-bar phrase towards the end of his astonishing solo in 'Unfinished Woman', a funky build-up of ideas written by Gerry Mulligan with an understated start. This is an amazing track!
The alto is also especially good in the evocative elegy 'Koto Song', with its eastern influences and chromaticisms, expressing a wistfulness of the quartet's previous excursions.
Gerry Mulligan's baritone sax. playing is equally musically competent, as seen in his melodic solo in 'Truth', introducing a 'way out' solo from Dave demonstrating his trademark heavy playing, before the number returns to the opening theme, as is the pattern of most of these tracks.
Shame about Dave's minute-long track 'Sweet Georgia Brown', as it is rather sub-standard compared to the other tracks, unlike the many encores played with the same band (minus Desmond) at the Berlin Philharmonie two years prior to this concert.
'Rotterdam Blues' really shows up the talent of these individuals though, especially Dave's, to generate musical ideas from scratch. Granted that it sits back into a less eventful chord progression, but the band pick up the groove nicely and Mulligan digs Brubeck's style well.
It is fun to hear two saxes playing in harmony on Paul's standard 'Take Five', Gerry's growling baritone balancing his voice-like, floating alto.

Yet another in the extremely long line of Brubeck concert recordings going right back to the early 50's. Here, the rhythm section comprises Alan Dawson (bass) and Jack Six (drums), though it's inferior to Gene Wright and Joe Morello, whilst Mulligan, on his baritone sax, seems to honk and squawk and quack in contrast with Desmond's mellifluous alto playing. I've still yet to hear a better concert recording than the classic quartet At Carnegie Hall in February 1963.

But, for all that, this album's not a bad set of selected live performances in Paris, Rotterdam and Berlin (not a single event) and the band sounds like they enjoyed themselves. A performance of Take Five is also included, almost inevitably, and the benefits of 24 bit digital remastering as part of the Warner Bros Jazz Best Collection 1000 series are readily apparent, so make sure that if you buy it, this is the edition you choose.

It's all been said in the first review. The only criticism I have is that it's not long enough! If you like this, you'll like Live at the Berlin Philharmonie too.
