Jazz Goes To College
by Dave Brubeck
Released: Jan 1954
Label: COLUMBIA JAZZ MASTERPIECES
An "all new" collection of various college dates that the DBQ cut, this may be the single finest of the bunch. Brubeck and Desmond's interplay is exemplary, with the alto saxophonist hitting star status with his work on "Balcony Rock," "Le Souk" (an early experiment with Eastern rhythms) and the aching ballad "Don't Worry 'Bout Me."
