* incomplete broadcast

"A Library of Congress “Living Legend,” 90-years-young pianist Dave Brubeck proves jazz is the fountain of youth, as he performs with his quartet to orchestral arrangements of “A Salute to The Count – The Basie Band Is Back in Town” and other compositions. The program also features the fiftieth anniversary of the chart-topping “Take Five,” performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet on their 1959 album "Time Out", which remains one of the best known jazz standards ever." -

* Note: My recording of most of the first hour of this broadcast - mostly the usual Pops fare [movie themes by John Williams, some light classical pieces etc.] was ruined by radio reception problems, but I was able to record the entire second set including the Dave Brubeck Quartet with few if any problems. I'm including two clean tracks from the first set and the standard Boston Pops concert closer, Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever," as filler [tracks 13-19].

The Dave Brubeck Quartet:
Dave Brubeck: piano
Bobby Militello: alto sax and flute
Michael Moore: bass
Randy Jones: drums
