This post is merely an explanation and an alert for the post I just published and for future posts. For almost a year, I’ve been working on a project near and dear to my heart, and that is the creation of a discography of the music of the Dave Brubeck Quartet. It’s still a work in process, but I decided to start publishing the parts I finished. You can find more information about this project here (you can find it on the home page of my site), but I included a section of the discography description below.
‘One of the reasons why I started this blog back in the day was to chronicle the music of the Dave Brubeck Quartet and all of its facets. Something I’ve wanted to do for the longest is create a detailed selective discography of the Dave Brubeck Quartet’s available music, a document that contained info on all of Brubeck and Paul Desmond’s recorded output during their partnership from 1951 to 1967. In the course of my personal research and collecting, I’ve noticed anomalies and omissions in Brubeck’s discography that I couldn’t find any information on. This discography is my attempt to correct that and make my research available for others.’
This is something I’m really excited about, and it was a project that was extremely enjoyable to work on. Short of writing a book, this is the best way to make use of all the rare recordings I’ve amassed, all the hours of Brubeck I’ve listened to, and all of the random bits of information that I’ve read and researched. Here’s to the Dave Brubeck Quartet!
