2.0 out of 5 stars Really deceptive collection!
This Brubeck is really not what it appears. The other reviews say that it is standard Brubeck but that there are no details. I have managed to track down most of the tracks and they are NOT regular Brubeck but are mostly from early Fantasy albums. The earliest are from 1948 and the latest are from the 'Oberlin' and from 'Time Out' and 'Gone With the Wind' albums. It has...

2.0 out of 5 stars Really deceptive collection!, 28 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The Absolutely Essential 3CD Collection (Audio CD)
This Brubeck is really not what it appears. The other reviews say that it is standard Brubeck but that there are no details. I have managed to track down most of the tracks and they are NOT regular Brubeck but are mostly from early Fantasy albums. The earliest are from 1948 and the latest are from the 'Oberlin' and from 'Time Out' and 'Gone With the Wind' albums. It has some great jazz but the lack of any details make it a real gamble if you have any Brubeck at all and if you don't there are lots better collections to get instead.

CDs arrived promptly and well packaged. The recent BBC4 programme was the prompt to return to the cool west coast - 5/4 jazz of Dave Brubeck Quartet - never tire of their renderings.

Excellent value for money, such lush interpretation of so many classics and clever working together of the musicians - it is the essence of cool!

Having seen Dave Brubeck some years ago It reminded me that he was probably one of the best modern jazz pianist's of all time

A first class collection of Brubeck's early classic I recommend it to any Brubeck fan - especially the first CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely jazz, shame about the lack of sleeve-notes, 6 Jan. 2011
This review is from: The Absolutely Essential 3CD Collection (Audio CD)
For once, the word 'essential' is richly deserved. This 60 track collection is required listening for any jazzie who - up to now, for reasons of musical illiteracy or possibly because the LPs are now unplayable - don't yet possess it.

Just as well most of us already know that the musicians are Joe Morello (drums), Paul Desomond (sax), Dave Brubeck (pno), and - wosisname, bass. Because the sleeve notes don't tell you that. Nor is there any indication of recording dates and timings on the track-listing. Poor show.

Otherwise, the buy of the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Found some of the tracks rather boring., 18 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Absolutely Essential 3CD Collection (Audio CD)
When I was putting some of the tracks on my computer, all 3 discs showed the same tracklist, from disc no.2 which makes things slightly confusing. Found some of the tracks rather boring.
