Format: Audio CD
This selection is from two of the best Brubeck Quartet albums of the early 1950s - which for me means two of the best of Brubeck's many albums. Both were live concert recordings made at university colleges: the first four tracks are from the `Jazz at Oberlin' album, the remaining five from `Jazz at Pacific College'. They come from that formative phase when the quartet was building an audience for its music, and attracting more attention to jazz in general, among student audiences.

On "Perdido" and "The Way You Look Tonight" you can hear the excitement their inventive and utterly committed playing generated in the enthusiastic Oberlin audience. Desmond in particular plays like a man possessed and his solo on the latter track is one of his sharpest and most brilliantly sustained on record. He is more typically smooth and self-contained - but still flowing with ideas - on the ballads, "These Foolish Things" and "Stardust", also from the Oberlin concert. On the first of these, Brubeck springs one of his dramatic surprises, moving from a quietly lyrical opening to his solo into a more intense and anguished (or angry?) section before subsiding into the quiet mood he began with. It's one of his more unusual performances, contrasting with the open-hearted romanticism of his approach to "Stardust".

Those who are not put off by that kind of romanticism from a `jazz' group will recognise "For All We Know" - from the Pacific College concert - as a small masterpiece of inspired melodic invention. I've commented in more detail on this and other tracks in my Amazon review of the Pacific College album, so I'll say no more about them here, except that "All the Things You Are" is another Brubeck Quartet masterpiece featuring one of the pianist's very best solos.

In the jazz idiom, Paul Desmond remains the epitome of the lyrical improvising musicians. This album of his playing with the Dave Brubeck group is a solid representation of that era. There is, however, one piece that will remain a classic: I Remember You. It alone is worth the price of the album.
