Posting this a few days after Mr. Brubeck's passing. Pacific is a part of his fine college album series, and shows why he was one of the last of the masters from that golden age.
Jazz at the College of the Pacific is a live album by Dave Brubeck Quartet. It was recorded and released in December 1953 on Fantasy Records. The cover was designed by Ed Colker and drawn by Arnold Roth. Critic Nat Hentoff wrote on Down Beat magazine that the album "ranks with the Oberlin and Storyville sets as the best of Brubeck on record".
