Album Review

This CD, a straight reissue of the original LP, contains 11 songs written for the soundtrack of the long-forgotten television series Mr. Broadway. It pays tribute to New York in a more abstract way than Jazz Impressions of Japan celebrated Japan for Brubeck had to concern himself with having the music fit in with the show. In general these themes and the melodic improvisations of Brubeck and altoist Paul Desmond hold their own without the show although none of the songs became standards.

Customer Reviews


This album is fantastic. more than you can ask from the dave brubeck quartet. this is probably the only album in my entire library that I can honestly say all the songs are worth the dollar. They're all so good. I would narrow your purchases for particularly better songs on this album but theres no such thing with this fine collection of songs.

New York-style Brubeck

Compared with other Brubeck albums, this one is packed with new material, all tunes and melodies written or inspired by Brubeck's work writing the soundtrack to the forgotten TV series Mr. Broadway. Brubeck was a prolific composer, and his tunes were always melodically driven (and often with lyrics in mind). Many of the songs on this album follow this song-style, though the theme tune is a hot blues in 3/4 time, replete with Brubeckian counter-rhythms. This tune did enter the Quartet's concert repertoire, and was in fact recorded by Oliver Nelson on More Blues and the Abstract Truth. Desmond is nicely represented here, in particular his feature on "Lonely Mr. Broadway."

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...
