Dave Brubeck Quartet - The Great Concerts: Amsterdam, Copenhage
Top Customer Reviews
We have three tracks (1958) from the album "Dave Brubeck Quartet in Europe" (Copenhagen concert), two tracks from "Brubeck In Amsterdam" (1963) and four from the Carnegie Hall concert (1963) everyone a classic recording.
Every track is a pearl, but there are three or four that stand out for me: the opener "Pennies From Heaven" (9.49), "For All We Know" (9.25), Blue Rondo" (11.59) and "Take Five" (6.15) coincidentally all from Carnegie Hall. Don't think that the rest of the album is dross...it ain't; it's great!
Nine great performances brought together! Worth buying.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
The players' alchemy is notable considering that, according to the liner notes, they played the Carnegie Hall portion in poor health after a long tour. Here, Brubeck chases Paul Desmond's fluttering sax solos on a swift "Blue Rondo a La Turk" and on intimate, compact renditions of Billy Strayhorn's "Take The A Train" and a gently persistent "Like Someone In Love." Joe Morello at times hides superb cymbal work behind Desmond's gliding, other times slamming (especially on "Real Ambassadors" where he duets with Brubeck's near boogie-woogie piano) with swinging intensity approaching a jazz variation of John Bonham. (If the "Time Signatures" box set is to be believed, Brubeck enjoyed such drum flamboyance.)
This remains among the few live collections still in print from the Quartet's peak years (although Atlantic's "We're All Together Again For The First Time" from a decade later recaptures the group in fine form). It is thus essential for longtime Brubeck fans, although "Greatest Hits," his "Anything Goes" tribute to Cole Porter and the legendary "Time Out" are strong first purchases for the new listener.
