Anything Goes – The Dave Brubeck Quartet Plays Cole Porter

LP (Item 405810) Columbia, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

Dave and the quartet pay tribute to the songwriting genius of Cole Porter – working with familiar older tunes, but nicely unlocking them with a strong sense of Brubeck modernism! Things start out slow, but get extremely playful as the set goes on – with fresh timings and phrasings that move the chestnuts past their usual territory – and allow some great space for crisp alto solos by Paul Desmond, always a treat in any Brubeck set! Dave himself sounds slightly heavier in his left hand on the keys – hitting things with a harder tone than one might expect for a Cole Porter session, and again making for an unusual twist for the material. Titles include "Night & Day", "Anything Goes", "Love For Sale", "What Is This Thing Called Love", "All Through The Night", and "You're The Top". (360 Sound mono pressing. Cover has some wear, a tracklist sticker, split seams, WGN letters in marker, and a few spots of clear tape.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1982. Very Good
An 80s album by McCoy Tyner, but easily one of his most soulful sessions ever – thanks to help from Phyllis Hyman and a host of great guest stars! The sound's a bit more tightly arranged than some of Tyner's 70s sessions, but there's still plenty of fire here too – a bit of a Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

The last Three Sounds album for Blue Note – and the funkiest too – thanks to lots more electrification than usual, and some killer arrangements from the mighty Monk Higgins!
