BRUBECK QUARTET:
Jazz Players Roam Country

By JUJDITH SATThERY
The Dave Brubeck !Quartet is a
fast-moving group.
The members gathered from
Connecticu~t, California and New
York; moving just as quickly, they
left for different parts of the
country immediately after the per-
formance.
At intermission, the. men came
bounding off the stage. Brubeck
and bassist Eugene Wright heldI
a quick conference about Wright's
plane time and the timing of thej
performance.1

Wright proceeded to make ar-
raig; inents for a ride to the air-
port for himself and his bass--in
a small foreign car.
in a room backstage, drummer
Joe Morello, gesturing nervously,
asked saxophonist Paul Desmond,
"Well, did we wrap it up or are
we going to go back on?"
Desmond idly fingered his sax,
replied that they would go on
again. The two men then made
quick, sketchy arrangements for
the next numbers.
Brubeck finished plane arrange-

FLITSfancied
the most

ments, strode into a small room
and dropped into 'a chair.
"Jazz is no different from other
music, Brubeck said. "The same
things are the components of all
of it-harmony, rhythm, melody,
and form.
"Early jazz copied march form,
melody and harmony. The only
new things were the African rhy-
thms; and the spontaneous im-
provisation.
"In the clash of Western Euro-
pean and African musical cultures
in 'America, the strongest elements
of each survived : melodies and
harmonies of Europe, and the
rhythms of Africa," he explained.
Someone stuck his head in the
door. "Five minutes, Mr. Bru-
beck," he said. Brubeck nodded.
"Anid the improvisation in jazz
is not new, either," Brubeck con-
tinued. "We're going back, and
keeping alive a lost classical form.
In Mozart's time, musicians were
expected to improvise in perform-
ances and we do the same thing."
"Two minutes, Mr. Brubeck,"
someone called. Brubeck hurried
out of the room into the hall,
where Desmond and the others
were gathered. They stood a mo-
ment, waiting nervously.
Then the door to the stage
opened and the four were on
again.
