Album Review

This is the tamer, politer side of Dave Brubeck, for sure, collecting ten songs, mostly ballads and never uptempo (though once in a while it gets brisk), from 1954 to 1967. For the most part these are soothing, though not overly slick, interpretations of standards by the likes of Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart, as well as "These Foolish Things" and "Besame Mucho."

And as rock & roll began to dominate...
