Thank You - Dave Brubeck
Dave Brubeck already recorded this tune in 1958, but here we have a performance from the late nineties by his new wonderful quartet.
After Brubeck’s introduction alto sax player Bobby Militello plays a solo that gets hotter by the minute. From Brubeck’s grin of surprise and satisfaction one notices that something special is happening. Then the mood changes completely and in the piano part there is this lovely Chopin like music coming through. A great composition played in utter extremes, totally magic!
From a Jazz Festival in Europa Park in Germany.
