Dave Brubeck Quartet — Live From The Northwest, 1959 (RSD)

Regular price $30.95

RSDBF First Release on 180-Gram Vinyl

Live From The Northwest, 1959 is the newest release from Brubeck Editions, the family run label that only puts out music of the highest musical and technical quality. These exciting performances were recorded by the trailblazing and iconic audio engineer Wally Heider, who pioneered the art of remote recording from his “studio on wheels.” The sound he achieved is stellar, and this is perhaps the best live recording you can hear of one of the most popular jazz groups of all time. The tapes were recorded in April 1959 at the Multnomah Jazz Club and Clark College, both in the Portland, Oregon, area. Four months later, the Dave Brubeck Quartet recorded their legendary LP, Time Out, and changed the course of jazz forever.

This new LP showcases the quartet at the peak of their talent, especially demonstrating their unique mastery of improvising counterpoint (a musical device updated from Bach), while swinging through jazz standards and original compositions. These master musicians (Dave along with Paul Desmond, Eugene Wright and Joe Morello) transcend time. Listening to this new release, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in a jazz club fully immersed in high-fidelity sound, on a night when the incomparable Dave Brubeck Quartet was firing on all cylinders!
