First I have to say that I was really excited when I was offered this CD set to review. I'm a big Dave Brubeck fan (which isn't something people my age generally say ;). I grew up listening to this collection on vinyl. My dad LOVED Dave Brubeck and I grew up listening to him. Listening to this CD set really brought back memories!

I'd love to see this re-release introduce a whole new generation to Dave Brubeck! This is an amazing collection that any lover of jazz should have in their collection. I'm thrilled to have this collection made available once again! If you want to add some great music to your collection, this is it!
Thanks to Sony Legacy Recordings for providing me with a copy of this great CD collection to review!
