By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on September 1, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Brothers Chris Brubeck (bass and trombone) and Dan Brubeck (drums) have jazz in their veins, since their dad is the legendary jazz master Dave Brubeck. The two brothers have been playing together for years and cut their first record together in 1996. With the addition of guitar (Mike DeMicco) and piano (Chuck Lamb) they have now released four albums, of which this is their latest. It's a tribute to the elder Brubeck with thir own takes on four of Dave's compositions (as well as Paul Desmond' "Take Five", the one song most identified by Dave, though he didn't compose it).

Though he doesn't appear on this album (his last recorded performance was on Chris' CD with his group Triple Play - an album I love!) Dave is here in spirit. After starting off with the elder Brubeck's tribute to Ellington, titled "The Duke" the Quartet plays "Jazzanians" which first appeared on the "Brubeck Trio" album with Dave, Dan and Chris. This is followed by "Kathy's Waltz" - another Dave comp - before moving on to three pieces composed by either Lamb or DeMicco. Another Dave song reappears "My One Bad Habit" and then it's "Take Five" time! Dan kicks it off with a New Orleans second-line beat to give it a different groove (but the song is still played in the odd-time rhythm that made it a classic. And this closer clocks in (no pun intended) at nearly 10 ½ minutes!

Even the packaging is cool since the graphics on the CD disc itself make it look like a vintage jazz 45!

Though Dave is - sadly - too frail to perform anymore, we know that the Brubeck name will continue to give us pleasure for years to come.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Excellent music in the Brubeck tradition. Again unusual time signatures and a very moving tribute to their dad. Especially timely with the recent death of Dave. If you are as old as I am (67) and had an appreciation of Brubeck, who was one of my first jazz artist favorites, you'll find this very moving. Jazzanians and their take on "Take Five" are especially noteworthy.

Dave taught them well. This is a wonderful tribute to a true American treasure Mr. Dave Brubeck by two of his sons, Chris and Dan. They are joined by guitarist Mike DiMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb. The Quartet covers many of Dave's compositions and includes a few originals (that have the "Brubeckques" flavor). Chris' trombone is smooth and strong and when on bass he's steady and solid, Danny can flat out play the drums, and Mike and Chuck are the icing on a very delicious cake. Only thing better is seeing this group in person, you'd be advised to do it as soon as possible and until you can listen to Lifetimes! It's a great cd and the best part is it's only the beginning.

Hands down my #1 favorite jazz recording of 2012!! The perfect tribute and homage to a true jazz adventurer, each tune arranged, played and recorded with the utmost care. Superlative musicianship with deft and delicate interplay between all four players. Recorded beautifully with nothing muddied or pushed to the background! My highest possible recommendation for Lifetimes!!!
