Product Description:

Personnel: Dave Brubeck (piano); Bill Airey Smith (clarinet).
Liner Note Author: Neil Slaven.
Recording information: Montreaux Jazz Festival, Switzerland (07/22/1982).
It's easy to identify this live date as an unauthorized recording because of the poor balance of the instruments, the misidentification of songs, the odd use of actress Susan Dey's photo on the cover, and that Dave Brubeck was still signed to an exclusive contract by Columbia at the time of this concert. The opener is a lengthy "One Moment Worth Years" (listed as "One Moment"), followed by the pretty Mexican folk tune "La Paloma Azul" (listed as "Mexican Folk Song"), which became of favorite of Brubeck & Desmond. "Blues For Joe" is an improvisation featuring an extended solo by drummer Joe Morello, while the version of "Take Five" is surprisingly short with an average solo by Paul Desmond and a brief but more effective solo by the pianist. "Take The 'A' Train" shows Brubeck's fondness for disguised introductions. This CD will be sought by Brubeck fans but can't be considered essential due to it's less than high fidelity sound. ~ Ken Dryden
