Other Places: More, In Depth, On That Desmond Solo

Thomas CunniffeEducator and jazz researcher Thomas Cunniffe has posted analysis and additional information about Paul Desmond’s solo on “The Way You Look Tonight” from the Dave Brubeck Quartet’s Jazz At Oberlin. It was after correspondence with Tom that I began looking into the disparity between the solo on the original LP issue and that on all reissues. (See the item and comments two exhibits below). In his blog, Jazz History Online, he investigates possible reasons for the cut and aspects of the solo’s content. He also provides comparative MP3 tracks of the solo before and after the edit. To read, and listen to, Tom’s invaluable contribution, go to Jazz History Online.
