Background: Released in 1966, Dave Brubeck’s Greatest Hits is a compilation album of material he’d recorded up to that point for Columbia records.
While greatest-hits albums from jazz artists are sometimes dubious propositions, Dave Brubeck is the rare exception to the rule. Brubeck concentrated on the song as much as the performance, which is one of the reasons why he appealed to such a wide audience and it’s also the reason why Greatest Hits is such an entertaining and effective sampler. Featuring such familiar items as “Take Five,” “In Your Own Sweet Way,” “The Duke,” “Trolley Song,” “Unsquare Dance,” and “Blue Rondo à la Turk,” the collection provides a fine introduction to Brubeck’s collegiate jazz for the uninitiated.
