Tribute to Dave Brubeck. Join the Noel Freidline Quartet as they pay tribute to one of the most iconic names in jazz, the great Dave Brubeck. Along with saxophonist Paul Desmond, bassist Gene Wright, and drummer Joe Morello, Brubeck helped define the genre of West Coast “cool” jazz. In 1959 Brubeck released Time Out, which included the iconic “Take Five,” a Desmond composition that would go on to become Brubeck’s signature song. Featuring compositions in odd and mixed meters (outside the conventional 4/4 time with which Western ears were primarily accustomed), Time Out is widely considered one of the greatest and most influential albums in jazz history.
