The Dave Brubeck Quartet in concert at the Univerity of Rome in 1959. In a nice standard called " These foolish Things" there is some wonderful creative alto playing by Paul Desmond. After the pianosolo there is some very interesting solo work by bassist Eugene Wright.
Dave Brubeck born in 1920 is one of the most well-known jazz pianists of all time. The classic Dave Brubeck Quartet featuring Paul Desmond's liquid alto saxophone lasted for 17 years, during which time they produced the first ever million-selling jazz tune (Take Five), toured the world many times, and introduced enormous numbers of people to the jazz sound.
The two other members of the quartet were Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums.
