For listeners interested in a mellow overview of much of what pianist Dave Brubeck is famous for, this is a nice compilation. Ballads: Music for You features various studio and live performances that pianist Dave Brubeck gave from the mid-'50s to the late '60s. Included are dates with longtime collaborator/saxophonist Paul Desmond and others. Since most Brubeck aficionados will probably have heard these tracks before -- as most, if not all of his catalog is available on CD -- this album appears rather superfluous for even die-hard completists. Nonetheless, it is an enjoyable and well-paced release. ~ Matt Collar
