Of all the kingpins of West Coast (or “cool”) jazz, Dave Brubeck (b. 1920) has forged the most enduring and successful career, both as pianist and composer. Seven of the eleven standards herein spotlight Brubeck’s solo piano artistry. While his pensive side is very much in evidence, one also hears Brubeck’s thorough grounding in European classical music, a key element of his style. Brubeck’s son Chris is featured on rich-toned bass trombone during “My One Bad Habit,” while Jerry Bergonzi’s Coltrane-inspired tenor saxophone comes to the fore on “I Thought About You.” Most captivating of all, though, are the two performances with alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, Brubeck’s longtime partner, who does his strange meadowlark thing on “You Go to My Head” and “Stardust.”
