As part of the Essential Standards series from OJC, pianist and composer Dave Brubeck is spotlighted on 11 tracks recorded for Fantasy, Concord, and Telarc between 1949 and 2007. With the exception of "Let's Fall in Love," "Body and Soul," "Look for the Silver Lining," and "September Song," the remaining tracks were recorded live, and all show Brubeck applying his laid-back yet slightly academic approach to melodic standards. Brubeck maintains an inspired excellence that few musicians have been able to sustain for over six decades, and these tracks are no exception. Longtime Brubeck alto saxophonist Paul Desmond is featured on four tracks. The highlights presented here should be enough to keep the novice jazz listener interested in searching out more material, especially Time Out.
