"After personally witnessing Joe Morello execute a ONE-handed drum "roll" at a seminar of his in Madison Wi. in the early '60's,his exquisite brush-work solo on "Swanee River",was not surprising,but is nevertheless totally pleasing each time I hear it! This "jazz drummer's drummer"(in my estimation),also shines radiantly in his "Short'nin Bread" solo,on melodically-tuned tom-toms.
Eugene Wright's delightful bass solo in "Old Man River",leaves no room for criticism either,confirming that he & Morello were two, sometimes overlooked, pillars supporting this innovative,trail-blazing quartet.
Much (deserved)praise has been showered upon Brubeck & Desmond of course,& one listen to "Georgia on my Mind",with Paul's luscious,almost haunting sax solo & Dave's beautiful piano interpretation will suffice to instruct anyone unfamiliar with them,as to why their music remains so popular to this day."
Frankly, my dear, I DO give a damn!

"There are so many ways to view the influence of Dave Brubeck and this very special quartet - I'll stick to music. The power of these four to create new perspectives is at its highest on this CD. I owned the vinyl LP, wore its grooves down to the other side and if there is a limit to the life of a CD, I am sure I'll find it! The one word I can think of to describe what I hear from Morello,Wright,Desmond and Dave on this CD is reverance.c"
Good music, bad sound

"I recently bought this album. While the music (as expected from any Brubeck album) was good, I found the sound quality not up to the mark. The bass was lumpy & the sound lacked transparency. This is surprising as TIME OUT & BRUBECK TIME - both of which were recorded prior to this album - have much better sound quality. Do others find the same problem as me?"
