Brubeck Plays Matt Denise

"That should really be the name of the album. Since of course every song on here was written by Denise. I guess Brubeck wanted to make another "composer" album after he made "Anything Goes" which was his Cole Porter album. And by the way, that also is a great album! Wonderful teamimg as always by Brubeck and Desmond. My favorite track on the album is "Will You Still Be Mine" which is also my favorite Matt Denise song. "Mine" opens up fast and swinging, with Bruneck introducing the song with a strong 4\4 beat. Soon afterwards Desmond enters and plays his sax in a way ONLY he could. The title track is played quite well with again Burubeck playing the theme. It's at a slower pace then I'm use to hearing it, but none the less, a great version. "Lets Get Away From It All" showcases how well Desmond could swing. After a swinging solo by Desmond, Brubeck comes in with an equally swinging solo of his very own. This is one of the best albums made by the quartet. A must for all Brubeck fans! After hearing this one, try to find "Anything Goes", "Plays Music From West Side Story", and "Time Out". A classic."

"I heard this album in 1965, when I was 16. Not a bad introduction to Jazz. The best piano player, alto sax player, and drummer of all time. I got hooked immediately. You know I was listeneing to the pop music of the day. I put this on and heard Joe Morello with that outstanding cymbal playing on "Let's Get Away From It All", and I was astonished. I'm still astonished from Joe Morello. This is the best quartet of all time. Three players who are leaders and the bass. I only like Dave Brubeck with this quartet, and the drummer is what is driving him. Anyway, Dave Brubeck doesn't need me to criticize him, so let's move on. I wil tell you that the playing of "Angel Eyes", is absolutely the best reading of this song available. Period. You will feel like you are in a smokey cafe. It's so bluesy; don't tell me Dave Brubeck can't play the blues. It's unbelievable. I would buy the disc for this song alone. "Violets For Your Furs", is also a favorite. Great playing on these songs. The only thing I don't like about this album is the playing gets tedious on the other cuts, but that's my opinion. You may love the playing. The songs themselves are the things that are not enjoyable. In general, it's a great album and it's my first. I looked all over for this disc. I don't care what it costs. I would pay anything to have this. I'm so glad it's available. Also, the playing is extremely user friendly for the new person first listening to Jazz. I treasure this disc."
Sorry for its expensiveness

"In Japan, CD is very expensive. So when I go on a shopping for CD, I always get the import one. This music is nice, and also the jacket is, but too expensive because of IMPORT from Japan. I'm sorry for it. I hope this album release in the US. But this
record company is now under the japanese Sony Music Co., so my hope would not realise."
