Brubeck on the air!
The year was 1956 or 57, I remember now, I was listening to the radio and they kept playing jazz music from this guy Dave Brubeck and his quartet. I remember this stuff being broadcast “Live” and it really sounded good. Dave was on piano and This guy Paul Desmond was on alto sax and boy could he play! Desmond’s playing is so soft and mellow while Brubecks piano work is classic. I remember that this was a couple of years before this same group made a famous album called “Take Five” which really took the jazz world by storm. Man what a memory that was..you know they don’t play this kind of music anymore and what a shame.
