The Dave Brubeck Quartet - At Carnegie Hall (1963)

"The Dave Brubeck Quartet At Carnegie Hall is a 2 LP live album clocking in at a little over 90 minutes. My copy, shown below, was discovered in my parents attic, and, thankfully, it is in relatively good shape. The album cover reveals an amazing amount of information about Dave Brubeck, the band, and the performance. We learn, for example, that Brubeck didn't have high hopes for the February 22, 1963 performance. A snow storm and newspaper strike threatened to keep the audience away. Thankfully, the fans showed up and, according to the cover, that evening the Dave Brubeck band "reached swinging heights few ... had ever heard it attain before".

I enjoyed the album; although, at 90 minutes I found it difficult to stay focused during a single sitting. The album is a bit like a locomotive, it starts out slow but is able to build up a good head of steam by the end. The final few songs are the ones that everyone recognizes and remembers. They alone are worth the price of admission. I don't think I'll find myself listening to this album very often in its entiery. However, I wouldn't be surprised if from time to time, I'll throw on the second album just to hear the riff and rythms of "Blue Rondo a la Turk" or "Take Five". "
