Brubeck & American Poets

Dave Brubeck and Pacific Edge Voices - American PoetsIn September 25, 2012, Dorian/Sono Luminus released our second recording performing Dave Brubeck’s compositions, Brubeck and American Poets.

Dave Brubeck, revered as a jazz pianist, was a composer of a rich stream of choral music. The music is varied, with many of the songs evoking the feeling of specific places and emotions. The music can be enjoyed by all; some of it is complex, some youthful and easily accessible. A perusal of Brubeck’s choral catalog shows that most of his lyricists are beloved American poets, including Langston Hughes and Wendell Berry. This disc gives musical form to Brubeck’s love of American poets and his thoughts about the poets and the composition of these works are included in the booklet.

Through our many years of collaboration with Dave, he came to trust PME with his choral music. We strive to preserve and disseminate it through performances and recordings.

This album, recorded at world famous Skywalker Sound, with notes by ensemble director Lynne Morrow and Mr. Brubeck, featuring premiere recordings of new choral music by one of America’s most beloved musicians and composers loved the world over, is sure to enlighten, uplift, and entertain classical and jazz fans alike.
