This week we listen to another track by the original Dave Brubeck Quartet on their previously unreleased last concert recorded Dec. 26, 1967.
“La Paloma Azul (The Blue Dove)” is about 79 minutes into the show and can be found for one week at KUSP’s archive of the show [listen to the show here] [the show playlist is here].
Doug Ramsey, discussing the Quartet’s recent CDs in his blog Rifftides, says: “In all, the Pittsburgh concert is a substantial addition to the Brubeck discography.”
Personnel: Dave Brubeck - Piano; Paul Desmond - Alto Saxophone; Eugene Wright - Bass; Joe Morello
