The Dave Brubeck Quartet (with altoist Paul Desmond, bassist Eugene Wright, and drummer Joe Morello) is in excellent form for this typical program from the mid-'60s. In addition to standards such as "St. Louis Blues," "Tangerine," and "These Foolish Things," they perform Brubeck's originals "Cultural Exchange" and "Koto Song" along with a brief version of "Take Five." This LP is worth searching for.
