The 1954 North American college tour for the Dave Brubeck Quartet led to this album for Columbia Records.
Brubeck was joined by Paul Desmond, Bob Bates, and Joe Dodge.
Before there was Time Out, there was Jazz Goes To College. This incredible album documents the 1954 North American college tour of The Dave Brubeck Quartet and features Paul Desmond on alto saxophone, Bob Bates on double bass and Joe Dodge on drums.
Following the album’s original release, Dave Brubeck landed on the cover of Time Magazine and was declared “the most exciting new jazz artist at work today.”
This new vinyl reissue was cut from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound and pressed at RTI.
