You'll hear it right from the familiar piano intro to "Blue Rondo a la Turk, " where Brubeck's playing seems richer, more lyrical, more rhythmically alive. It seems to me that as our gear gets ever more quiet, these QRP LPs continue to wring more musical nuance from the finest recordings.
Music = 5/5; Sound = 5/5 Wayne Garcia. I've now heard a number of LPs from Quality Record Pressings (QRP), Chad Kassem's year-and-a-half-old record-pressing plant. I would have said that some positive trends were apparent from the earlier LPs I've heard.
However, this current pressing is so much better than those that came before it, which were certainly very good, that it's obvious things have improved considerably over the past year. It's a positive sign when the noise floor is defined by the hiss of the master tape, not the quality of the pressing or vinyl, and that's the case here. Having heard many, many Pallas and RTI pressings, the main competition for QRP, I would say that. QRP pressings combine the strengths of both its competitors: the very low surface noise and bottom-of-the-groove quiet of Pallas LPs and the sharp delineation of musical detail of RTI. Sound = 4.5/5; Music = 5/5 Marc Mickelson.

Debuted in 1959 on Columbia Records, Brubeck told an interviewer. An entire album of originals?That wouldn't work either, he was told. Some standards and some show tunes were needed in the mix.
Fortunately, Brubeck ignored the conventional wisdom and. Became the original classic we know it as today. Brubeck became proof that creative jazz and popular success can go together. The album was intended as an experiment using musical styles Brubeck discovered abroad while on a United States Department of State-sponsored tour of Eurasia.
In Turkey, he observed a group of street musicians performing a traditional Turkish folk song that was played in 9/8 time, a rare meter for Western music. Paul Desmond, who was Brubeck's alto saxophonist, wrote "Take Five, " at Brubeck's urging to try and write a song in quintuple (5/4) time. "I told Paul to put a melody over (drummer) Joe Morello's beat, " Brubeck explained. As a jazz pianist, Brubeck became a household name in jazz in part due to.
Demond's cool-toned alto and quick wit fit in well with Brubeck's often heavy chording and experimental playing. Morello and bassist Gene Wright completed the group. The Quartet traveled and performed constantly around the world until breaking up in 1967 to pursue other musical ventures.
