Thanks for this lovely post. Ends my search for two performances that didn't make it to CD: "You Go To My Head" where, at 10:52, Brubeck utters a lovely and satisfied "yeah"; and thw best-ever version of "Over The Rainbow" with the theme left to the end. Both of these songs calm me in these times of incredible despair.

Wow! Thanks for posting this. It's my favorite album from Brubeck. Now I don't have to go looking for the old 33rpm in my basement. A friend and fine Boston photographer, John Brook, took the cover photo.

Beautiful things like this can help people who are distressed by bad times, such as those which now commence with the ascension of a misogynist and a frightening incompetent to the White House.

Frederick Staal says:

A lovely, intimate album – these days I appreciate the calm and peace found in it.

Art Hampton says:

Wow. One of my first jazz lps, almost six decades ago! So sweet, insistently swinging, lyrical, moaning. Sweet. Nice to be able to slow down enough to really soak this one in.

Ben Hillman says:

I just love this album. When I was a kid my mom picked up this album at a yard sale (I can only imagine how little she must have paid for it.) It was pressed on a black and red marbled translucent vinyl record, and just sounds amazing. The playing and arrangements are so wonderful. I still have that record in my collection to this day, though I rarely make time to listen to vinyl anymore (I don't even have my turntable set up currently, which is a shame really.) Anyway, thanks for posting – I am thoroughly enjoying listening to this recording again. 🙂

Love the record to mp3 recording 😉

John Perks says:

A unique quartet which hit the headlines in the early sixties with 'take 'five', and have matured over the years into the most versatile and wonderful group in the world of jazz.
