Avis sur l’album

In the '50s, Dave Brubeck managed to accomplish something that few post-World War II jazzmen accomplished: He enjoyed a certain amount of acceptance in the pop market. And the interesting thing is that he did it without taking a pop approach — the pianist played instrumental jazz interpretations of pop songs, but he didn't play pop versions of pop songs. This 2002 release takes listeners back to a time when Brubeck was at the height of his popularity; recorded live on December 14, 1953, most of these previously unreleased performances are from the same concert that gave listeners the first Jazz at the College of the Pacific. Brubeck's quartet includes alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, bassist Ron Crotty, and drummer Joe Dodge, and this lineup is the essence of cool jazz. Essentially, cool jazz was a form of bebop; Brubeck's cohesive group is definitely playing bop changes on lyrical performances of "How High the Moon," "Love Walked In," and other standards. But they play them in a subtle, relaxed, understated fashion, and that use of subtlety is what makes Vol. 2 cool jazz. Brubeck and Desmond (who always had a gorgeous tone) both swing, but not in an aggressive, intense way — they were introspective players who realized the value of restraint. In addition to the 1953 performances, this CD contains a bonus track that finds an unaccompanied Brubeck performing "I Found a New Baby" at the same Stockton, CA, college in 1942. At that point, he was still playing swing piano and had yet to become distinctive or recognizable; even so, it's fascinating to hear what he sounded like before becoming well-known. Although not essential, this is a pleasing disc that serious Brubeck devotees will enjoy.

In the 1950s and '60s, few American jazz artists were as influential, and fewer still were as popular, as Dave Brubeck. At a time when the cooler sounds of West Coast jazz began to dominate the public face of the music, Brubeck proved there was an audience for the style far beyond the confines of the in-crowd, and with his emphasis on unusual time signatures and adventurous tonalities, Brubeck showed that ambitious and challenging music could still be accessible. And as rock & roll began to dominate...
