(Some) of Brubeck's greatest tunes
sil871 | Wallkill Hills, NY | 06/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've always felt that of all the jazz composers, Dave Brubeck has the most original ideas and concepts. Bear in mind, the man is not just strictly a jazz composer, recently I saw one of Brubeck's newest compositions entitled 'Regrets' being performed by the Yale Cellos, an entire 22 piece ensemble of just cellos. At the recital, I saw him there and got a chance to speak to him and ask him some questions. Given that Dave is currently 82 years old he is still very sharp, though he did not have a lot to say. What he did tell me however, after I asked him how he thought jazz and improvisation related to his orchestral and chamber music, was that they are one in the same. This is clearly evident in all of his music. No one has embodied more of romantic and post-romantic music in the jazz idiom than Dave Brubeck. The tunes on this album I must stress are SOME of the best work he did with the Dave Brubeck quartet featuring Paul Desmond, one of the greatest jazz bands in history. You still get overview however of what makes this band stand out from all other jazz quartets in history. If you are not familiar with Brubeck you should definetely buy this album and listen to it from beginning to end with no distractions and then you will understand what makes his musical ideas so original. If you are familiar with Brubeck you already know what I'm talking about, and this album will just serve as a good summary of his work with Desmond, Morello, and Wright."
Timeless Classic
Paul Allaer | Cincinnati | 10/14/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What can you say about the best of one of the greatest jazz combos, ever? This is about as timeless as it gets. And in remastered sound, no less. I'm not necessarly a big jazz fan, but I recognize great music, whatever style.The songs are from the 1959-1964 era, and include all the classics, including among others "Take Five", which remains as fresh today as it was in 1959, "I'm in a Dancing Mood", a live version of "The Duke", and "Blue Rondo a la Turk". I marvel at the genius of Dave Brubeck. My only regret is that I never I had the opportunity to see Dave Brubeck live in concert. Oh well... meanwhile I will do with this. Essential for any serious music lover, whatever your musical preference."
Indispensable Jazz
Paul Allaer | 03/31/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I listen to this all the time. Although the tracks are a basic run through of Brubeck's hits and the album seems a little dated, it is indispensable for any lover of jazz. Naturally TAKE FIVE is a classic, as is BLUE RONDO, one of my favorites, but other less popular numbers like the beautiful IN MY OWN SWEET WAY (entirely performed by Brubeck on piano) and the vicious UNSQUARE DANCE who's rhythm, as the liner notes point out, refuses to be squared (just try clapping to it). Brubeck is one of my favorite jazz musicians because of his cool style that's innovative and toe-tapping at once."
