Dave Brubeck Quartet - Oberlin College Finney Chapel
Label: Mbopdirect - River Records
Bitrate: 320 kbps
Jazz at Oberlin, recorded live by the Dave Brubeck Quartet during a 1953 Finney Chapel performance, earned a place in the annals of jazz history as a significant album not only for Mr. Brubeck, whose reputation as an innovative and original musician it secured, but also for the genre itself, extending its boundaries from the nightclub to the college campus.
"I always considered Jazz at Oberlin a breakthrough album for the Quartet," says Brubeck, "because it caught [Paul] Desmond and me in the early days when we were beginning the concept of ‘jazz goes to college’ as a concert performance."
The distinctive harmonic approach that pianist Brubeck employed with his 1953 quartet—Desmond on alto sax, Lloyd Davis on drums, and Ron Crotty on bass—plus their daring improvised contrapuntal choruses, caused a stir in the jazz world, launching what later became known as "West Coast" or "cool" jazz. The group performed "These Foolish Things," "Perdido," "Stardust," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "How High the Moon" for an ecstatic and appreciative Oberlin audience whose cheers are well documented on the recording. Jazz critic Gary Giddins later wrote that Jazz at Oberlin would "make many short lists of the decade’s outstanding albums."
