5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT SUMMARY OF DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET AT THEIR BEST, 8 Aug. 2012
This review is from: The Great Concerts... Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Carnegie Hall (Audio CD)
Dave Brubeck is a landmark in jazz. I came to feel jazz and open my mind plenty to it after listening to Dave Brubeck Quartet. The best formation of the quartet included Brubeck on piano, genius Paul Desmond on saxo, Gene Wright on bass and thunderous Joe Morello on drums. This album is a remarkable compilation of this Quartet performances in Carnegie Hall and Europe. It is a quite good recording and until recently the European tapes of Copenhagen have not been issued in CD format. Some of the best moments in Carnegie Hall are catched here, including the seminal tracks "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk". You may go to this album to have a great live summary of the band playing their best tunes. If you want more complete approach you shall go for the Carnegie Hall performance, which is without equal and the shows in Mexico (Buried Treasures and Bravo Brubeck). However this album is a good compilation and the Amsterdam concert is not published in CD by now, so this is also for completists. Brubeck was trained in classical music and produced a jazz which is sophisticated without losing its purity and freshness. Paul Desmond on alto saxo is a delight, I guess no one ever played that instrument that good and so cool.
