#48/100 – Dave Brubeck – Red Hot and Cool

This is a neat live session recorded in 1958 at a night club in NYC. Pretty good sound, though Dave’s piano could be a bit louder, but with Paul Desmond on the alto sax as bright as you’d want it, that’s okay. Side B’s pick of the night was Indiana, with a wonderful Desmond performance and Brubeck at his coolest. A marvelous, swinging bass and drum line throughout and I felt a bit like I was there…
