Format: Audio CD
I've been a huge fan of "Chris Brubeck's Triple Play"(the OFFICIAL name of this three piece band that is - to borrow Duke Ellington's words - "Beyond Category") for many years and their two previous CDs are often in my CD player. With guitar, blues harp, piano and bass trombone (that's Brubeck on the latter two) plus vocals, these guys play jazz, world music and blues.

This album is EXTRA special because it marks not only two of the band members playing with their dads (guitarist Joel Brown's 85 year-old dad Frank on clarinet and Chris' dad, the incomparable 90 year-old Dave Brubeck on piano), but because - due to health issues - this June 2011 concert recording will most likely be the elder Brubeck's last recorded performance.

The concert - recorded live without either the audience or Papa Brubeck knowing this - starts off with Peter Mudcat Ruth's blues harp and then slows down with the depression era standard "Brother Can you Spare a Dime?" The blues pretty much fill the first third of the evening, with titles like Robert Johnson's double-entendre "Phonograph Blues:" then giving way to the Asian-inspired "Koto Song" with Ruth's harmonica again out front. Two songs later, 2 ½ minutes into the band's version of the Dave Brubeck Quartet's class " Blue Rondo a la Turk", which has Chris on piano, father Dave arrives on stage (to tremendous applause) to take over the keys for the next eight minutes. (Two of the numbers on this generous 77-minute album run over 10 minutes in length.) From here on in, Dave never leaves the piano. For the Fats Waller song, "Black & Blue", Chris pulls out his bass trombone. Dave goes solo for his self-penned "Dziekuje (Thank You)" before the younger Brown provides the vocals on "Travelin' Blues", a song pended by Dave and his wife Iola.

I was at this concert at Skidmore College (I drove from Indianapolis to see it), and it was one of the best I've seen of any musical genre. Triple Play was solid, and the addition of Dave Brubeck and Frank Brown made the concert truly memorable. I have one copy of the CD from the show and want to buy several more as gifts. It is a great recording.

Chris Brubeck's Triple Play is awesome enough by itself. Chris on piano, bass & trombone, Joel Brown on guitar and Peter "Madcat" Ruth on harmnica, have enough musical power prowess to blow the doors off of any theater. Now add Joel's father on clarinet and Chris' father, the legendary Dave Brubeck on piano and you are in another universe. The extended version of "take Five" alone is worth the price of the CD. All of the songs on this are magical. My only regret is that I will never be able to see these great players live, as Dave passed away in December. Please, if anybody filmed this, bring it out on Blu-ray!

We heard Chris Brubeck's Triple Play recently and during the performance, Chris discussed this performance and subsequent CD. The fact that the music isn't all jazz has an appeal to me, and when his father, Dave, joins the group on the piano to do a couple of the most famous cuts from the Dave Brubeck Quartet is just the icing on the cake. I actually think I like this ensemble's versions of Take Five and Blue Rondo a la Turk better than the original recordings with the harmonica, guitar, and clarinet thrown into the mix. This is now one of my favorite CDs.

Heard one of the tracks on the local jazz radio station and was amazed at the harmonica and blues instrumental. Went to amazon to listen to the track excerpts and downloaded the album. It now resides on my iPod, iPhone and desktop where I can be continually enthralled with the various blues tracks and Brubeck variations.

Live albums are usually hit-or-miss for me. I love the spontaneity of a live performance, but I hate it when the recording quality is sacrificed. This album was a hit. Great performances and a top-notch recording.

The album is lighthearted and laid back, with fun commentary / interactions between the musicians and the audience. Even some of the musical phrasing is comical.

The music is a great meld of blues and jazz that never goes too far "out there." I really enjoyed their interpretation of Take Five, complete with harmonica and mouth harp.

My husband and I had the WONDERFUL opportunity to hear Triple Play in Boulder at our fabulous Colorado Music Festival last summer. During the performance, Chris Brubeck recounted how amazing it had been to have his father Dave Brubeck as well as Joel Brown's father - a superlative clarinetist - join them during the Zankel performance, and how - miracle of miracles! - it had been recorded. We couldn't wait to hear that recording, and it hasn't disappointed a bit. Hooray for Triple Play and thanks to Amazon for keeping it in its archive!
