Editorial Reviews

Brubeck met sax man Paul Desmond in early '44; their partnership would prove fruitful, as the two seemed to both complement and challenge each other at the same time. This last duet before Desmond's death in '77 makes clear the magic was still there! Features Alice in Wonderland; These Foolish Things; Blue Dove; Stardust; Koto Song; Balcony Rock; Summer Song , and You Go to My Head .

Format: Audio CD
Well, maybe not all that predictable. I long ago acquired Brubeck's solo album and learned all the transcriptions (Pawnee Press). Substantial stuff, cerebrally and emotionally satisfying to play and never wearing out its welcome. Still, it's not a well-kept secret that Dave has a strong attraction to emphatic rhythmic contexts as well as a percussive approach to match it (notice how rarely the word "touch" is used in describing his playing, which favored polymath metricians like Joe Morello or former hard-hitting big-band movers like Butch Miles and Randy Jones). This being, to the best of my knowledge, the only album comprising just Brubeck and his virtually indispensable complement, Paul Desmond, I was curious whether the percussive Brubeck would tend to dominate the proceedings. The temptation to overcompensate for the missing rhythm section might seem irresistible to a power player like Brubeck.

No need to fear such imbalances. In fact, Dave rarely goes so far as to supply walking bass lines, in the manner, say, of the late Dave McKenna. He seems more intent on placing himself at Paul's disposal than letting the piano or even the swing thing walk away with the session. The final result--recorded approximately a scant year before Paul's passing--places Paul front and center, his full and lustrous tone (it's about time to drop the overworked "dry martini" comparison which, thanks in part to Paul, writers have latched on to in a desperate attempt to represent the uniqueness of his sound, his fluid phrasing, his redefinition of the altissimo regions of the horn) is spot-lighted throughout, thanks to Brubeck's empathetic (not just "emphatic"), sensitive support.

There should be a -6- Stars choice for albums of this caliber! Purchased *NEW* arrived promptly and undamaged. Outer Case is cardboard, so no cracks. CD *NEW*, couldn't open fast enough. I also have the vinyl version for the 'tru sound' . . . But love the CD's for the car or the mobile location!
