Biography

Dave Brubeck was one of the most active and popular musicians in both the jazz and classical worlds. With a career that spanned over six decades, his experiments in odd time signatures, improvised counterpoint, polyrhythm and polytonality remain hallmarks of innovation.

Born into a musical family in Concord, California-- his two older brothers were also professional musicians--he began ... Read more in Amazon's Dave Brubeck Store

Format: Audio CD
I want to disagree with the person who gave this recording only 2 stars. Although it is not the best Brubeck LP from the 80s, it is one of his better ones and is a fair representation of his quartet in concert at the time.
I saw this line-up several times during the 80s and early 90s. At the time, Dave had re-united with clarinetist Bill Smith (with whom he had worked during the late 40's in an octet and again in a couple quartet settings during the 50's, using Smith instead of Desmond to create a different sound). Bill Smith's clarinet does not sound like Desmond's alto, nor is it supposed to, nor can ANY reed player sound like Desmond. The idea is to appreciate Dave's sound in a new setting.
Five of the six songs on this outing are inspired and invigorating (Theme for June is much more on the relaxed and mellow side). Brubeck unleashes his signature improv block chordal technique and Smith wails on the clarinet. Chris Brubeck gets a little funky on the bass and Randy Jones (one of my favorite jazz drummers) keeps every thing humming along.
Moscow Night is a significant recording historically because it marks Brubeck's first performances in the USSR after 30 years. It is also his final recording for the Concord Jazz label. It is definitely worth owning for any serious Dave Brubeck fan.

You probably will not like this one. Much banging of piano. Fine sax player, but not Desmond. Take five lacks the immortal drum solo and substitutes piano and sax. Leave this one on the shelf, I wish I had.

This album is a wonderful mix of Brubeck's early works modernanized with Brubeck's new quartet with Randy Jones and some other dudes.(i just like the classic quartet)
