Alto saxophonist Paul Desmond's solos kept me connected to the Dave Brubeck Quartet's music. A perfect "dry martini" mix of boundless lyricism and musical excellence. The following tunes were selected from several albums included in the The Dave Brubeck Quartet: The Complete Columbia Studio Albums Collection 1954 to 1967 box set.
