AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

The Dave Brubeck Quartet (featuring baritonist Gerry Mulligan) collaborated with The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra for version of "Elementals" and four more concise Brubeck originals, including "The Duke." This is one of the more successful "jazz meets the symphony" recordings, with the orchestra being logically integrated into Brubeck's music.
