Cat No: NOTLP288


Keyboardist, bandleader and composer Dave Brubeck is the man
the New York Times credited with ‘helping make jazz popular
again in the Fifties and Sixties. He did not always please the
critics (but) the oppositional push and- pull between his piano and
Paul Desmond’s alto saxophone make the Brubeck Quartet’s best
work still sound original.’ In Britain, the Daily Telegraph called
Brubeck ‘one of the most famous jazz musicians of the 20th
century’, adding that ‘his recording of “Take Five” remains one of
the few jazz records instantly recognised by members of the
general public.’ But, as fans know, there was more to Dave
Brubeck’s music than one composition or album. Dave Brubeck
left a legacy of material that outlives the time and place it first
came into being.
