This is the 3rd in his '2 generations' series, Dave Brubeck has always been one of my biggest jazz piano influences and when i heard his albums done with his kids (Two Generations of Brubeck) and
(Brother, The Great Spirit Made Us All) i got giddy with excitement...much like Dave probably did as a proud parent jamming with his very able bodied kids playing bass, drums and electric piano's!
Since 2004 they finally got around to releasing the first 2, but for some reason never released this gem of an album onto CD. So I've spent the last month tracking down a good LP copy, only to have to send it to Mama C up in Maine to have it transferred to CD and me to put it here for any jazz lovers pleasure. Hope ya'll enjoy it as much as me!!!!!
For a period in 1977-78 (after the death of altoist Paul Desmond), pianist Dave Brubeck had a quartet with his sons keyboardist Darius, drummer Dan and Chris on bass and trombone. This Montreux concert features five of Dave Brubeck's originals (including "It's a Raggy Waltz" and "In Your Own Sweet Way") along with the standard "It Could Happen to You" and finds father Dave in fine form even if Desmond is clearly missed. This well known album cover features a watercolor illustration by renowned graphic designer, Milton Glaser of Push Pin Studios. SONG LIST: 1. (It's A) Raggy Waltz; 2. Brandenburg Gate; 3. In Your Own Sweet Way; 4. It Could Happen to You; 5. God's Love (Made Visible); 6. Summer Music;
