Dave Brubeck Quartet: “St Louis Blues” (1961)

This is the Dave Brubeck Quartet performing the “St. Louis Blues” on a tour in the Netherlands in 1961.

Dave Brubeck born in 1920 is one of the most well-known jazz pianists of all time. The classic Dave Brubeck Quartet featuring Paul Desmond on the alto saxophone lasted for 17 years. The two other members of the quartet were Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums.

You can see the Dave Brubeck Quartet here play one of their best known recordings, “Take Five.”
