Editorial Reviews

Taped around February 20, 1958, this is the first existing recording by the classic quartet with Paul Desmond, Gene Wright and Joe Morello (Wright had only joined the group the previous month). Among its many highlights are versions of tunes rarely recorded by the group, like ""Watusi Drums"", ""One Moment Worth Years"" and ""The Wright Groove"", as well as a marvellous ""St. Louis Blues"", a short reading of ""God Save the Queen"", and the only version of ""Audrey"" by the classic quartet.

If you love the classic DBQ like I do, this is a real find. It pre-dates TAKE FIVE by a year or so, and so many of the songs, like WATUSI DRUMS, evolved into more familiar forms. It's similar to listening to a work-tape, but it's the in-concert raw beginnings of the solid repertoire of the Quartet. In an interview with Paul Desmond, Paul said they were playing 300 concerts a year. A word to any aspiring musician: Hearing this music, then comparing it to more mature versions is a wonderful illustration of how much practice means to the art. You gotta play, and play and play!

The classic Brubeck Quartet (Brubeck, Desmond, Morello, Wright) was already famous in 1958 when they toured Europe (maybe at the behest of the State Department?), although Gene Wright had only recently joined. The quality of the recording is sketchy--the bass is too loud and boom-y, maybe it was a single-microphone setup?--but the quality of the playing and its historic significance is substantial. This was a time when jazz giants were walking the Earth and here are four of them, early in their career.

An archeological trove of early Brubeck-Desmond playing. Recording definitely gives a feeling of "you are there". Thanks to whomever had the instinct to record this from the audience.
