Firstly, any unheard-of Brubeck recording is of interest to me, especially of the Classic Quartet with Desmond, Morello, and Wright. That makes this release welcome.
Secondly, it must be said that this is what can generously be called "archive material." Clearly the tapes were about to disintegrate when they were transferred to digital, because there are some drop-outs and muffled sound where the original tape is damaged.
Thirdly, this set may be from the Hollywood Bowl, who knows, but in NO WAY is this from 1958. The music from this set contains Brubeck's classics "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo," recorded in '59 and released in '60. The group sounds very at ease with these difficult pieces. The inclusion of "Castillian Blues," from an album released in '62, seems to make this concert most likely to have been recorded in that year.
Therefore, this set is only for true collectors.
