Dave Brubeck – Lullabies (Vinyl LP)


In 2010 at 91 years old, Dave Brubeck recorded peerless takes on best-known children’s songs, beloved standards, and originals as a gift to his grandchildren and as his last studio recording. His playing, ingenuity and integrity, all hallmarks of great Brubeck recordings, are abundantly apparent on this album. Bookended by two versions of “Brahms Lullaby,” the five originals among the covers are “Going to Sleep,” “Lullaby For Iola,” “Koto Song,” “Softly, William, Softly” and “Briar Bush.” Further tracks include “Over The Rainbow,” “Danny Boy,” “Going to Sleep,” “There’s No Place Like Home,” “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” and “Sleep.” “Some of the melodies on this album are like those familiar songs,” says Brubeck. “Some are original pieces that I thought would appeal to a baby as well as an older generation. I hope the littlest ones will respond to this music, and that parents and grandparents will enjoy it as well.”
