Paris 1972 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Olympia, Paris, France; October 26, 1972. Very good (glorious) stereo FM.

In 1959, the Dave Brubeck Quartet recorded Time Out, an album about which the record label was enthusiastic but which they were nonetheless hesitant to release. Featuring the cover art of S. Neil Fujita, the album contained all original compositions, almost none of which were in common time: 9/8, 5/4, 3/4, and 6/4 were used, inspired by Eurasian folk music they experienced during their 1958 Department of State sponsored tour. Nonetheless, on the strength of these unusual time signatures (the album included “Take Five”, “Blue Rondo à la Turk”, and “Three To Get Ready”), it quickly went Platinum. It was the first jazz album to sell more than a million copies. A high point for the group was their 1963 live album At Carnegie Hall, described by critic Richard Palmer as “arguably Dave Brubeck’s greatest concert”. - wikipedia

  3. none of you clowns ever got the joke.
    I created Madame Phoot as a lark , a funny bit of wordplay along the lines of some of W.C.Field`s great character`s i.e. Snideley Whiplash, Mahatma Cane Jeeves , and now Madame PHoot as in Madamn Phoot`s stuck in the door. The lovely madame is neither a he nor a she , it is a pesudonym and nothing more. I am now retiring the grand dame once and for all.

  10. For blacks Jews and Hispanics and mid eastern men average is way bigger

    By C Tony on Jan 5, 2021

  11. For blacks average is around 11 inches long by 7 inches in circumference. Jews are pretty close , so are Hispanics and Italians. Asians have the smallest Cocs . Average is around 3 inches long by one inch around. No wonder most can’t get laid out of their race . Chicks dig the long dong .

  19. R.I.P. Eugene Wright: “Wright’s most notable work was with the Dave Brubeck Quartet, which he joined in 1958. He remained with Brubeck until 1968, as part of the classic line-up with Paul Desmond and Joe Morello, and featured in Brubeck’s notable standards “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo à la Turk”. He recorded more than 30 albums with the group. Brubeck himself wrote that Wright “grounded the group”, allowing them “to play other tempos and do polyrhythmic things and he wouldn’t budge from this grounded beat.”
