David Warren Brubeck (/ˈbruːbɛk/; December 6, 1920 – December 5, 2012) was an American jazz pianist and composer, considered one of the foremost exponents of cool jazz. He wrote a number of jazz standards, including "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke". Brubeck's style ranged from refined to bombastic, reflecting both his mother's classical training and his own improvisational skills
Sticking to a mix of standards and popular songs that have since fallen out of favor among jazz musicians, the pianist and his longtime alto saxophonist, Paul Desmond, weave their magic together with several extended imaginative improvisations, particularly "On the Alamo" and "Gone with the Wind.
The fact that Brubeck and Paul Desmond anchored the groups lent stability and direction which evolved into the golden years of the Quartet before Desmond's departure for a solo career. There is very little to critique here. The playing is wonderful - the improvisations are elegant, unique, and ultimately Brubeckian - in short, essential to any serious jazz collection. Update - I neglected to mention that some of these broadcasts originated at the Buckminster Hotel in Boston. It was a venue that housed Storyville for a period of time in the early 50's. Also I was in error as to the station broadcasting the programs. I missed it the first time through, but subsequently learned that the engineer on the Buckminster Hotel remotes was Arnie Ginsberg who was a sound engineer and later iconic DJ for station WMEX in Boston.
