Description by OLDIES.com:

The complete original 1957 album Jazz Goes to Junior College, by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, featuring Paul Desmond on alto sax, Norman Bates on bass, and the recent addition of Joe Morello on drums. A thematic follower to Jazz Goes to College, one of Brubeck's greatest hits at the time, the music on this album was recorded during two concerts at junior colleges in California. As a bonus, two rare extended performances taped during a lecture at the University of California in Berkeley by the previous formation of the quartet, with Joe Dodge on drums, have been added.

Product Description:

As a sort-of follow-up to Jazz Goes To College (which was actually recorded three years earlier) and the final album in his "college" series, pianist Dave Brubeck and his Quartet (with altoist Paul Desmond, bassist Norman Bates and drummer Joe Morello) recorded at Fullerton Junior College in 1957. The musicians were clearly inspired by the enthusiastic audience and they perform the definitive version of Brubeck's "One Moment Worth Years," dig into the lengthy "Bru's Blues" and play fresh versions of three standards that were in their repertoire throughout the 1950's: "These Foolish Things," "St. Louis Blues" and "The Masquerade Is Over." Most Dave Brubeck records are well worth acquiring, particularly concert albums, so it seems odd that this frequently superb outing has not yet been reissued in full on CD. ~ Scott Yanow
