THE DAVE BRUBECK QUARTET

THEIR LAST TIME OUT

2011-12-13

The Dave Brubeck quartet has gone down in history as one of Jazz Music's most celebrated groups. The group led by Dave's fiery fingers on the keys & the cool sounds of the late Paul Desmond on alto sax, the Senator Eugene Wright on bass and drummer Joe Morello who passed earlier this year brought us many jazz classics including the Desmond/Brubeck classic Take Five. This is the groups final concert as a quartet and the master tapes have been preserved in Dave's personal library. The recording quality of this disc is pristine and clearly shows a group that departed at the very top of their game. Many of this groups classics were emitted from this recording such as Blue Rondo a La Turk and Unsquare Dance but listeners will not be disappointed by the 15 gems that made up one magical musical evening on December 26, 1967.
