Playlist:  Dave Brubeck Chronology by Adam Leo Feldman

Dave Brubeck's mother, Elizabeth Brubeck, studied under Dame Myra Hess whose piano arrangement of Bach's Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring seems like a fitting beginning for a Brubeck chronology. As a young adult, Brubeck's own focused musical studies under Darius Milhaud leads us to include a short work for Saxophone by Milhaud which suggests some provocative questions about the musical paths artists may take across generations. It's after Milhaud's "Vif" that we enter the bulk of this selected historical journey through the Brubeck repertoire. Significant works from 1954-1976 are not yet available from the Music Online database. But there is much of interest from the earliest days of his recorded career as well as his mature later phases.
