|Recorded live in Berlin, Germany, February 22, 1958.
A long unavailable concert by the legendary quartet appearing here in its entirety for the first time ever! Includes two previously unissued tracks! Although Brubeck and Desmond played with several musicians over the years, this new group of Brubeck, Desmond, Wright and Morello would become the most famous of Brubeck's bands. The Quartet had been together for about a year when the State Department hired them for a "goodwill" tour of Europe in 1958. Brubeck, Desmond, Wright and Morello made the trip across the Atlantic and performed across two continents for audiences in England, Germany, Scotland, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Turkey, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq. Although four of the six tunes performed in Berlin appeared on a long out of print edition, this is the first time the complete concert appears on CD ("The Duke" and "One Moment Worth Years" have never been previously issued on any format).
