Few jazz musicians have come close to attaining the influence or popularity that Dave Brubeck has achieved in his six-decade career. On this fantastic live album, Brubeck, a recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, is joined by acclaimed clarinetist Bill Smith for an astounding set of songs including the Brubeck signature staple “Take Five.” Originally recorded in 1982, and released here in stellar high-resolution audio, you can hear every nuanced touch of these remarkable musicians. A must-have for jazz aficionados.
In 1982 pianist Dave Brubeck welcomed clarinetist Bill Smith (who he had played with back in his octet days in the late ’40s) as a permanent member of his Quartet along with drummer Randy Jones and Chris Brubeck on electric bass and occasional bass trombone. This album features the new Quartet at the Concord Jazz Festival playing what would become their typical mixture of songs: three Brubeck compositions (“Benjamin,” “Koto Song” and “Softly, William, Softly”), a standard (“Black and Blue”) and yet another remake of “Take Five.” These are fine performances.
