Seven standards shine under a paper moon
J. Levinson | Media, PA USA | 01/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)
"The 1981 edition of the Dave Brubeck Quartet performs a nicely sequenced set of seven standards, highlighted by a "Paper Moon", creating a relaxed yet wistful mood. Pianist Dave Brubeck and tenor saxist Jerry Bergonzi take strong solos throughout. Bassist Chris Brubeck gets in a nice melodic bass solo in on the opener, "Music, Maestro, Please!". Chris breaks out his bass trombone for a solo on the title track, throwing in a cute "When You Wish Upon a Star" quote before wrapping up the track with a return to the primary melody. Drummer Randy Jones is solid in support throughout, creating subtle rhythmic interest. If you're a fan, you know what to expect from Dave, lots of block chords, though he steps out with fast single note runs in "Long Ago (And Far Away)", and takes a sensitive solo turn on "St. Louis Blues" to close out the set. Overall, another very solid entry into the maestro's lengthy discography."
