The classic Dave Brubeck Quartet (Brubeck, Desmond, Morello and Wright) frequently opened their concerts with Billy Strayhorn’s “Take The ‘A’ Train.” At a 1966 concert, German television caught back-to-back performances of “‘A’ Train” and Brubeck’s “Forty Days.” They have surfaced on the Daily Motion web site. Audio quality is good, black and white video quality acceptable. Camera work and direction are excellent. The lengthy clip–nearly sixteen minutes–provides a reminder of the Brubeck rhythm section’s finely attuned empathy, of Paul Desmond’s melodic ingenuity and of his imperative to make each solo a fresh statement.
