This release presents a complete Dave Brubeck concert in Manchester that was never previously released on any format! Taped around February 20, 1958, this is the first existing recording by the classic quartet with Paul Desmond, Gene Wright and Joe Morello (Wright had only joined the group the previous month). Among its many highlights are versions of tunes rarely recorded by the group, like Watusi Drums, One Moment Worth Years, and The Wright Groove, as well as a marvellous St. Louis Blues, and a short reading of God Save the Queen, which is the only existing recording of the tune in both Brubeck and Desmond’s discographies. Although the sound is clearly not of studio quality, this spirited live set is definitely worth listening to.

PERSONNEL:

PAUL DESMOND, alto sax
DAVE BRUBECK, piano
GENE WRIGHT, bass
JOE MORELLO drums

Recorded live at Free Trade Hall, Manchester, England, February 1958.
