Dave Brubeck Is Still Cooking!
Richard Woodward | DuBois, PA USA | 09/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD documents the preparation and performance of Dave Brubeck's jazz mass, "To Hope - A Celebration". It was recorded in Moscow in 1997 with Russian Orchestra and Chorus and is an absolute masterpiece! Dave performs with Jack Six, Randy Jones, Bobby Militello and conductor Russell Gloyd. The leadup to the performance is quite interesting as it shows Russell teaching the Russian performers to sing in English and play in jazz tempo. The production, clarity and camera work are superb and the performance of "Blue Rhondo ala Turk" with quartet and orchestra is outstanding. The 14th movement of the 15 part mass will have you cheering in your living room."
To much talk and a few great moments

"Dave Brubeck is a great jazz piano player and he shows it by improvising on a Russian theme during an interview (one of the best moments, or minutes).

Usually we see the concert and then can see complementary information in the "extras".
In this case we see the extras and have a complementary show at the end...
We see his arrival, his interviews, his rehearsals, meetings, etc... and when you are about to throw yourself out of the window you are rewarded with a few minutes of great music.
Brubeck is the one and only

"Dave has set the bar very high for so many years. He does not have an equal,IMO. I have most of his albums in vinyl and disc and several DVD's, and I am completely taken back each time I listen to him. Way to go, Dave."
