Anything Goes – The Dave Brubeck Quartet Plays Cole Porter

LP (Item 405810) Columbia, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+
$7.99 ...

LP, Vinyl record album

(€6.66 || £5.88 || ¥885) (approx.)

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". (70s pressing. Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Fantasy, 1953. Good+
An early concert from the Dave Brubeck Quartet, but a great one too – and a set that's filled with sparklingly crisp alto work from the mighty Paul Desmond! The style here is in keeping with some of Brubeck's early Fantasy studio sides – a bit more inside than later years, with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Presenting Burton Greene
Columbia, Late 60s. Very Good
One of the biggest albums ever from pianist Burton Greene – a set that also features the great Byard Lancaster on alto and trumpet, and which mixes in some hip electronic harpsichord as well – all in a mode that's wonderfully trippy and spellbinding! Tracks include "Nirvana ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1958. Very Good-
Dave Brubeck takes on the Eurasian scene – with wonderfully groovy results! The album's one of Brubeck's first in the "impressions" series, and it's a really colorful assortment of tunes – tracks with some lyrical and exotic moments that come through strongly, and which ... LP, Vinyl record album
Time Out
Columbia, 1959. Very Good
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album
New View!
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of his oft-overlooked 60's albums, and a nice batch of tracks with Bobby Hutcherson on vibes and Pat Martino on guitar. Some of the record's laid back, but some of it goes quite out, and has long tracks that let Handy wander around with nice soulful solos, while Hutcherson hits some very hard ...

Adventures In Rhythm
Columbia, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of the records that arranger Pete Rugolo cut for Columbia in the years after he parted company with Stan Kenton. As most modern jazz ears will know, Rugolo was one of the main reasons for Kenton's uniquely swinging approach in the early 50s – and he also lent his talents to some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Very Good
The rarest of the "time" trilogy albums albums that Brubeck started with Time Out – and the most compelling, too! The classic quartet is in excellent form here – and drummer Joe Morello is especially excellent, as he's working in new rhythms and new percussive modes that you'd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drum Is A Woman
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
A hokey cover and title, but a hip little record from Duke Ellington – kind of a story of percussion and jazz, all wrapped together with some great vocals and narration! The format is kind of far-reaching, but never too stuffy – and in a way, the album offers a great opportunity to ... LP, Vinyl record album
