The master of odd time signatures, Dave Brubeck began at age 13, playing with bands in Concord, CA. His studies with Milhaud and Schoenberg were a lasting influence on the construction of his solos and compositions. During the 50s and 60s, his groups were the most popular in the world, especially on college campuses. He was the most popular "cool" stylist ever from an exposure standpoint. He and alto saxophonist Paul Desmond were precise, sparing players whose every note seemed measured, and they seldom pushed or rushed any tempos. Brubeck employed a host of things from the classical world -- block chording, counterpoint, and fugues -- and made them palatable. He's been a huge seller since 1954 and remains immensely popular. ~ Ron Wynn ---------- Related Artists ----------- Evans, Bill Flanagan, Tommy Hanna, Sir Roland ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Milaud,Darius Tatum, Art Waller, Fats Garner, Erroll McPartland, Marian Wilson, Teddy Ellington, Duke Schoenberg, Arnold Bach, Johann Sebastian ---------- Bibliography ---------- Brubeck, Dave |Genius Continues, The |Columbia Pictures Brubeck, Dave |Genius of Dave Brubeck, The |Columbia Pictures Brubeck, Dave |Blue Rondo |Columbia Pictures Brubeck, Dave |Biography of Dave Brubeck |New York Brubeck, H. |Dave Brubeck |New York Alternate Name : David Warren Brubeck Birthdate & Place : Dec 6 , 1920 Concord, CA AMG Artist ID # : P000006198 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Time Signatures: A Career Retro|1992|Columbia |52945 | |+BestA Once When I Was Young |1992|Music Mast|65083 |R | Good I Like Jazz: The Essence of Dav|1991|Columbia |47931 | | OK Duet |1991|A&M |0703 | | OK Quiet As the Moon |1989|Music Mast|65067 |R | Good New Wine |1987|Music Mast|5051 |R | Good Moscow Nights |1987|Concord Ja|4353 |R S | Good Live at Montreux |1987|Tomato |269613 |R | Good Blue Rondo |1986|Concord Ja|4317 |R S | Good Reflections |1985|Concord Ja|4299 |R | Good Marian Mc Partland's Piano Jazz|1984|Jazz Allia| | | For Iola |1984|Concord Ja|4259 |R | Good Concord on a Summer Night |1982|Concord Ja|4198 | S | Good Paper Moon |1981|Concord Ja|4178 |R | Good Tritonis |1980|Concord Ja|129 |R S | Good Back Home |1979|Concord Ja|103 |R | Good Fiesta De La Posada (Festival o|1976|Columbia |36662 |R | Good 25th Anniversary Reunion |1976|A&M |0806 |R S | Good Brubeck & Desmond: Duets (1975)|1975|A&M |3290 |R S | Good 1975: The Duets |1975|Horizon |703 | | BestA Two Generations of Brubeck / Br|1974|Atlantic |1660 |R | Good Brother, the Great Spirit Made |1974|Atlantic |1660 |R | Good Two Generations of Brubeck |1973|Atlantic |1645 | S | Good Truth Is Fallen |1973|Atlantic |1606 | | Good Brubeck on Campus |1973|Columbia |31298 | | BestA All the Things We Are |1973|Atlantic |1684 |R S |+BestG We're All Together Again (for t|1972|Atlantic |1641 |R | Good Adventures in Time |1972|Columbia |30625 | | Good Summit Sessions |1971|Columbia |30522 | | Good Last Set at Newport |1971|Atlantic |1607 |R | Good Elementals for Jazzcombo, Orche|1970|Decca |71081 | | Good Dave Brubeck Quartet |196?|Fantasy |8093 | | Good Brubeck & Desmond |196?|Fantasy |8092 | | Good Compadres |1968|Columbia |9704 | | BestA Blues Roots |1968|Columbia |9749 |R | Good Last Time We Saw Paris, The |1967|Columbia |9672 | | Good Bravo!

They're Brubeck's 1949 and 1950 Fantasy cuts, and are wonderful. Some include Cal Tjader. This is an excellent set for those who only want a little Brubeck and are seeking a starting point. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 25th Anniversary Reunion Artist : Dave Brubeck Quartet Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Date : Mar 10, 1976+12 (recording) AMG ID : R000135950 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD A&M 75021-0806-2 CD A&M 806 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Good concert reuniting Brubeck with his longtime partner Paul Desmond. Though only a year away from death, Desmond provided some beautiful, swirling solos and worked wonderfully with Brubeck and fellow comrades bassist Eugene Wright and drummer Joe Morello. There's a lengthy number titled "African Times Suite," plus a good rendition of "St. Louis Blues." ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Joe Morello - Drums ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Adventures in Time Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Date : 1972 (approx.)

There's few surprises; Brubeck goes through his alternately subdued, then lively piano work, while Desmond has his normal swoops and shimmering slow ballads, and the Wright/Morello team works off them impressively. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Joe Morello - Drums ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Back Home Artist : Dave Brubeck Quartet Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Date : Aug ??, 1979 (recording) AMG ID : R000135955 --------- Album Releases --------- LP Concord Jazz CJ-103 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- A late '70s item that presented the new Brubeck sound. While his piano solos were still their characteristic self, he was now working with fresh faces. Saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi offered the most incisive playing, while his son Chris was competent but derivative on bass and trombone, and drummer Butch Miles the same. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Blue Rondo Artist : Dave Brubeck Quartet Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Time : 44:16 min Date : Nov ??, 1986 (recording) AMG ID : R000135957 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1992 CD Concord Jazz CCD-4317 1992 CS Concord Jazz CJ-317-C CD Concord Jazz 4317 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Some of his best and liveliest playing. ~ Ron Wynn ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Dave Brubeck - Piano Chris Brubeck - Guitar Randy Jones - Drums Bill Smith - Clarinet ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Blue Rondo a La Turk Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Genre : Jazz AMG ID : R000157978 --------- Album Releases --------- 7" Columbia 13-33036 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Blues Roots Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Charts : Down Beat #5 Genre : Jazz Date : Oct 4 , 1968 (recording) AMG ID : R000135958 --------- Album Releases --------- Columbia CS 9749 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Bossa Nova Usa Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #014, entered Mar 16, 1963, on charts 015 weeks Down Beat #2.5 Genre : Jazz Date : Jan 3 , 1962 (recording) AMG ID : R000135959 --------- Album Releases --------- Columbia CL-1998 1963 Columbia CS-8798 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Brandenburg Gate Revisited Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #137, entered Dec 21, 1963, on charts 003 weeks Down Beat #3 Genre : Jazz Date : Aug 21, 1961-22 (recording) AMG ID : R000135960 --------- Album Releases --------- Columbia 1963 1963 Columbia CS-8763 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Bravo!

This concept album offered Brubeck's unusual time signatures, classical influences and odd rhythms applied to equally unorthodox music; that of Asians and Indians. The results aren't totally successful, but provide some interesting moments anyhow. Desmond finds ways to make his alto playing fit, and it sounds dreamy and compelling even in this context. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Jazz Impressions of Japan Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Charts : Down Beat #3.5 Genre : Jazz Date : Jun 16, 1964-17 (recording) AMG ID : R000135985 --------- Album Releases --------- Columbia CL-2212 1964 Columbia CS-9012 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Jazz Impressions of New York Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Best-of-Genre (First Pick) Charts : Billboard #142, entered Feb 27, 1965, on charts 004 weeks Down Beat #4.0 Genre : Jazz Date : Jun 18, 1964-Aug 21, 1964 (recording) AMG ID : R000135987 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1990 CD Columbia CK-46189 1965 Columbia CS-9075 1990 CS Columbia CT-46189 1965 Columbia/Legacy 46189 CD CBS 46189 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Some of his most engaging, appealing playing. ~ Ron Wynn ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Jazz Impressions of the U.S.A.

They're done in a bit more standard jazz fashion than usual, though Brubeck does inject some stately passages into his work. This is more West Coast than anything else, with Dodge and Bates not teaming as well as Dodge did with longtime rhythm section partner Eugene Wright. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Last Set at Newport Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Date : Jul 3 , 1971 (recording) AMG ID : R000135991 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Atlantic SD-1607-2 CS Atlantic CS-1607 CD Atlantic 1607 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Fine collaboration with Gerry Mulligan which seems to put some life into Brubeck. His playing has some force and rhythmic intensity, while Mulligan plays with a grainy bounce and vibrant tone. Jack Six on bass and Alan Dawson on drums weren't usual Brubeck comrades, so they approached his music with no set ways to play it, and made Brubeck take some chances during his performaces.

Unfortunately, none of the three sons is as gifted as his father, and Brubeck proves this even more by finding ways of fitting into a sound that's almost by definition not designed for his style. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Marian Mc Partland's Piano Jazz with Guest Dave Brubeck Artist : Dave Brubeck Rating : not rated yet Genre : Jazz Date : Mar ??, 1984 (approx.)

While Smith in time became a capable player and added some intriguing possibilites in terms of his playing, he was quite different in conception and sound from Desmond. These differences are quite apparent on this 1961 release.

Smith sounds as prickly and unorthodox as ever, while bassist Jack Six and drummer Randy Jones fill their roles efficiently. Brubeck' still a crafty pianist, doesn't try as many usual things with time signatures and rhythms anymore, but manages to make his solos count more often than not. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Paper Moon Artist : Dave Brubeck Quartet Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Time : 41:55 min Date : Sep ??, 1981 (recording) AMG ID : R000136000 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1992 CD Concord Jazz CCD-4178 1992 CS Concord Jazz CJ-178-C CD Concord Jazz 4178 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Interesting early-'80s work, with Brubeck updating and changing sound and direction, moving towards accomodation with fusion and light rock. His own playing kept its jazz edge and foundation, but his group now included saxophonist Jerry Bergonzi, plus his son Chris on electric bass and trombone and drummer Randy Jones.
