I saw Brubeck around 1957 when I was at San Jose State College in California and he appeared for a student concert. I followed him and bought every album I could find since then. This album has many of his essential works (although a true believer would have all of them - like me). Get this album if you want to know what the man really did - in a nutshell. Norm.

Format: MP3 Music
If you already own a Brubeck album like "Time Out," "Dave Brubeck's Greatest Hits," or "The Essential Dave Brubeck," these 25 bargain-priced tracks make an excellent supplement. The late great pianist's most famous work emphasized his rhythmic inventiveness and incorporation of both classical and international themes, but this set of jazz standards is full of brilliantly cool melodic and harmonic playing, flights of beauty and sensitivity that will move you and make you mourn his loss all the more.

The albums first two tracks, "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk," his most popular compositions, are the only ones duplicated on the albums previously mentioned. You're getting excellent value for money, paying just six bucks for nearly two-and-a-half hours of music, including both live and studio recordings. You owe it to yourself to hear more of this classic quartet, which consisted of Brubeck, the supremely lyrical Paul Desmond on alto sax, and the masterful rhythm section of Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums.

My father was a gifted but self-taught pianist who encouraged me and my four younger brothers to take lessons. the only lingering benefit from those lessons is a great appreciation for anyone who can sit down at a piano and make that marvelous instrument "sing". I've been a fan of Dave Brubeck since High School (over 55 years). This Album is a collection of Dave's greatest accomplishments as a Jazz Artist. I now have it on my MP3 player and my Kindle Fire so I can take Dave's Artistry with me when I travel..........Talk about great company!!!!!.

After Dave Brubeck's passing, I settled on getting this album to commemorate his phenomenal contribution to jazz. This was better than I than I expected with 25 energetic numbers. Many songs are live performances, which I normally don't prefer, but these are well-recorded and an easy listen. I'm only sorry that Unsquare Dance wasn't included in this set -- I'll have to get that one separately. Great album: I listened to it three times the first day I bought it!

We don't buy CD's anymore, the fascination of having "the thing" has long passed. We are jazz neophytes and find Brubeck's music to be timeless and enjoyable. He was the "rebel" of his time, being one of the few bands to tour with a mixed race group which was no small thing for that era. This music continues to bring enjoyment to the world.

Unless you were born in the last decade of the twentieth century you have probably heard "Take Five." Brubeck really cuts a groove with that piano and Paul Desmond soars on the sax (witness "Blue Rondo a la Turk"). And, you have never heard "tea for Two" done with such style.

Dave Brubeck was my introduction to jazz in the mid-fifties. I don't know how many times I played his "Take Five" album but every note was committed to memory. This "Greatest Hits" tells and important story about the 'modern jazz era'.Great recording enjoy...

I selected this rating ( I love it!) to memorialize one of the most influential jazz legends. Two of his recordings, Take Five and Blue Rondo ala Turk, are the two most popular jazz recordings of all time.
