Between 1958 and 1967 the original Dave Brubeck Quartet brought the cool sound of West Coast jazz to mass audiences. Brubeck's ability as a composer and pianist was complemented by Paul Desmond's lyrical alto playing. Desmond's unique sound was no less influential than his flair for composition. With "Take Five," his 5/4 masterpiece, the group earned international recognition. The quartet's repertoire was varied, covering both jazz standards and more original material. LOVE SONGS gives a taste of both.
The band breathes new life into "My Romance," where sprightly solos are supported by a laid-back rhythm section. The Cole Porter ballad "What Is This Thing Called Love" has a haunting sound, as Brubeck's tiptoeing piano line answers Desmond's lilting alto. While the timing of "Somewhere" demonstrates the Brubeck-Desmond partnership to the full, renditions of "La Paloma Azul" and "Besame Mucho" are also notable for their originality, and shine with brilliance. Kick back, and enjoy the sound of cool.
