Dave Brubeck – Dave Digs Disney 180g Vinyl (Mono Version)
1957’s Dave Digs Disney is in many ways an important album in the Dave Brubeck canon.
It marked the first time a musician (or in this case, a group of musicians) dedicated an entire series of tunes to interpretations of children’s fare – the films of Walt Disney; it also became the second most important title in The Dave Brubeck Quartet’s Columbia catalogue, after the platinum-selling Time Out album, and the one to which many listeners return to.
Featuring takes on such Disney classics as “Give A Little Whistle,” “Heigh-Ho,” “When You Wish Upon A Star” and “Some Day My Prince Will Come,” this incarnation of the Dave Brubeck Quartet is comprised of Dave Brubeck (piano), Paul Desmond (alto saxophone), Norman Bates (bass) and Joe Morello (drums).
This vinyl reissue features all-analogue mastering from the original mono tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound, comes pressed on 180-gram LP courtesy of RTI, and is housed in a Stoughton old style tip-on jacket.
