The Reviewer Completely Missed the Point!
To read the "official" review of this album, you would think that it is not that great. In reality, it is a superb compilation of Brubeck's songs, not as jazz pieces, but as American art songs (such as those by Ned Rorem). While it may be true that Brubeck originally composed a number of these songs as jazz pieces, they also work quite well in this new guise. Brubeck is, after all, not just a jazz composer, but also a very proficient composer of art music. Bottom line - if you are looking for a jazz album, this ain't it. But if you are looking for an excellent collection of art songs by Dave Brubeck, you've come to the right place. Just be sure to ignore the "official" review!
