Product Description

Product Description

AVID Jazz here presents three classic Dave Brubeck albums plus , including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. 'Dave Digs Disney', 'Southern Scene', 'The Dave Brubeck Quartet In Europe' and the plus 'Jazz Impressions of the U.S.A…Side 2' For our latest in a mini series of tributes to Mr Brubeck we have chosen three albums that are vastly different from the experimental album that became the all time classic Time Out (featured on AMSC998). On two of our classic albums, 'Southern Scene' and 'Digs Disney' Brubeck has mainly chosen southern folk songs and spirituals and of course music from the wonderful world of Disney! And he still found time during his busy touring schedule to record new tracks for the 'Quartet In Europe' album. Finally we complete a promise made on our earlier Brubeck CD AMSC998 and feature side 2 of 'Jazz Impressions of the U.S.A.' All three albums plus have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever!

Unlike the previous reviewer I find Desmond's beautiful almost ethereal tone ravishing.Many years ago a famous jazz writer who rated both Hodges and Desmond commented that Johnny Hodges was the Alfred Deller of the alto whilst Paul Desmond was the Lily Pons, both great but different. To hear Desmond soar through the rather banal tunes from Walt Disney is absolutely glorious. Brubeck released from his experiments with time signatures shows that he can swing like crazy. Does anyone worry about the sounds made by Getz in comparison to The Hawk? I don't think so. Jazz is a broad church. At the price this album is, I say grab it. My regret is that not a long time back I paid far more for just one of the albums on this set. If you want to hear Desmond in full flight try Desmond Blue with Jim Hall on guitar. Ok it has strings but they compliment Desmond's beautiful sound perfectly. I bought my first copy in 1962 and have always had it in my collection.

I'm giving these 2 CD's 5 stars mainly to correct anyone who has the temerity (on Amazon) to suggest the problem with the Dave Brubeck Quartet was Paul Desmond! When of course everyone else knows without Paul Desmond's beautiful alto sax introductions Dave Brubeck's piano doodlings would be meaningless. Besides which, without a lead saxophone a piano trio would never have had enough fire power to fill huge American university auditoriums and European concert halls. And in so doing convert a vast number of sceptical young people into lifelong jazz fans. To my mind mostly thanks to Desmond's ability to create long lyrical solos with his unique alto voice.

The other point is if you are a genuine music lover it is possible to admire several different ways of playing a musical instrument. As my half dozen reviews of Johnny Hodges's CD's indicate I believe he was not only the greatest alto sax player in history but also one of the top 3 soloists in the entire history of jazz. But in the 50's when I bought these 4 albums on vinyl I was not being disloyal to Duke Ellington and the other titans of mainstream jazz. What was clear the moment one heard Paul Desmond's alto on "Like Someone in Love" is here thankfully was a happy alternative to the then fashionable practitioners of nihilistic tuneless bebop jazz. Time has proven most are now deservedly unremembered and unloved - except by a few impressionable souls who thought playing a lot of notes very very fast was the future of jazz - when in fact Charlie Parker and his ilk eventually killed-off jazz as an living evolving art form.

I would agree though if you repackage 4 vinyl albums onto 2 CD's it's indefensible to leave off the entire first side of "Jazz Impressions of America" while adding a 10 minute track from another source.

My first introduction to the Dave Brubeck Quartet was in the late fifties, when my elder brother borrowed the then rare and very expensive double album 'Playboy Jazz All Stars' from a friend. Along with nearly all the jazz greats, Louis Armstrong, Gerry Mulligan, Chet Baker and the like was this this 9-minute 16-second Brubeck masterpiece called 'Pilgrims Progress' This minor keyed blues featured a haunting solo on alto sax solo by Paul Desmond followed by this amazing tuneful and at the same time discordant attack on the piano by Dave Brubeck. I thought that I was familiar with most jazz phrasing and improvisation types; but I was completely wrong. The choice of improvisation from Desmond was completely alien to anything that I had heard at that time and as for Brubeck's solo, I was blown away. Needless to say from that moment I was a dyed in the hole Brubeck fan.
As for the remaining tracks: I already have the In Europe and USA albums in vinyl and I had previously heard most of the other albums featured. The important thing about this review was that the 'Pilgrims Progress' track never appeared on any of his own albums and I was resigned to the fact that I was never likely to hear it again. So this purchase was more than worth it for this track alone
