Around the time that she was participating in Dave Brubeck's Real Ambassadors, singer Carmen McRae appeared at Basin Street East with the backing of Brubeck's trio (no Paul Desmond on this set). The resulting live album finds McRae mostly interpreting the lyrics of Iola Brubeck; all dozen songs except Desmond's "Take Five" are Dave Brubeck originals. This interesting set finds McRae's voice in prime form, and her vocal versions of such songs as "In Your Own Sweet Way," "Ode to a Cowboy," "It's a Raggy Waltz" And "Travellin' Blues" are definitive.

This excellent CD reissues the LP Brubeck Time plus half of Red Hot and Cool. One of the few early studio (as opposed to club) recordings by the early Dave Brubeck Quartet (this version has bassist Bob Bates and drummer Joe Dodge in addition to pianist Brubeck and altoist Paul Desmond), the fine unit performs nine standards plus three new compositions: "Stompin' for Mili," "Audrey" (dedicated to Audrey Hepburn) and Brubeck's classic, "The Duke."

All the Things We Are is a bit unusual in the Dave Brubeck discography. The pianist is heard in a quartet with altoist Lee Konitz on "Like Someone in Love" and a brief "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," with avant-garde giant Anthony Braxton (also on alto) featured on "In Your Own Sweet Way," while both Konitz and Braxton team up for "All the Things You Are." In addition, the Brubeck Trio (with bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson) plays an exquisite and frequently exciting 21-minute, five-song "Jimmy Van Heusen Medley." A total success, this "experimental" Brubeck set is highly recommended.

It was early Sunday afternoon, October 2, 1952, at George Wein's Storyville in Boston, Wyatt Ruther, who was then bassist for Brubeck, was unable to make the first set and Dave, Paul Desmond and drummer Lloyd Davis began to experiment in a mildly curious way. The bulk of the audience had not yet arrived and so they were playing entirely for and between themselves.

This five-CD box set collects all five of the Dave Brubeck Quartet's Time series recordings: Time Out, Time Further Out, Countdown: Time in Outer Space, Time Changes, and Time In, with bonus material attached to three of the discs. Of this quintet of recordings, the latter three have never been available on CD in the United States. Recorded between 1959 and 1965, each of these titles has a distinct relationship to "time travel" in the context of jazz. Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and company were consciously trying to extend the time-space continuum in jazz, and erase the boundaries of imposed four/four signatures in the idiom…

This radio broadcast of a 1982 Montreux Jazz Festival set featuring the Dave Brubeck Quartet has been issued by a number of different European bootleg labels, all with excellent sound but one glaring error: labeling the pianist's "(Open the Gates) Out of the Way of the People" as "Improvisation." In spite of its sketchy origin, this CD contains an excellent, well-recorded set of music, featuring clarinetist Bill Smith in one of his earliest appearances as a full-time member of the group in the early '80s after he replaced tenor saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi. Brubeck is clearly inspired by his reunion with his old friend (who was a part of the pianist's early octet and also took Paul Desmond's place on a pair of Brubeck albums decades earlier).

This LP introduced Paul Desmond's beautiful ballad "Audrey" and found the early Dave Brubeck quartet (with pianist Brubeck, altoist Desmond, bassist Bob Bates, and drummer Joe Dodge) making a rare studio recording; up to this point all of their most popular records were club performances. With fresh versions of such songs as "Jeepers Creepers," "Pennies from Heaven," and "A Fine Romance," this music is certainly worth acquiring.

The 1987 edition of the Brubeck Quartet featured pianist Brubeck, his son Chris on electric bass and bass trombone, clarinetist Bill Smith and drummer Randy Jones. In addition to remakes of "Blue Rondo à la Turk," "Strange Meadowlark" and "Swing Bells," the leader contributed six new originals including "I See, Satie" and a tribute to Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz called "Dizzy's Dream." Bill Smith, who uses electronics with taste on his clarinet during a few songs, has long been a major asset to the later Brubeck Quartets. This is one of their better Concord CDs.

25th Anniversary Reunion marks a special event for the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Founded in 1951 by the pianist with alto saxophonist Paul Desmond as his lead soloist, the group disbanded in 1967 so Brubeck could focus on composing sacred works. Their reunion with bassist Eugene Wright and drummer Joe Morello, the rhythm section that had gelled for good in the late '50s, was a special occasion, as the quartet toured the U.S. extensively. There were plans to record at the March 12, 1976, concert in Fort Wayne, IN, but Morello noticed a problem during an Interlochen performance and learned he suffered a detached retina, something that caused him to leave the tour immediately, with Dan Brubeck stepping in to fill his big shoes for the remaining concerts.
