Dave Brubeck Quartet 'play' Golden Brown - editing genius!

Recommended Posts

As a tribute to Dave Greenfield (kbd Stranglers)  Laurence Mason has done a genius level mash up of old footage of the Dave Brubeck Quartet and an instrumental version of Golden Brown, which he created himself. He explains how he achieved this in the notes. Done to perfection !  Enjoy.  :thank_you:

Video edit thing doesn't do much for me. But it's a great tune with the same time signature as 'Take 5' and he's done a really nice jazz arrangement.

Quite unsettling if you're thinking of either of the originals at the time!

Brilliant editing, mind.

Errr... - I think Golden Brown is in 3/4 ? (with the occasional bar of 4/4 during the main theme)  🙂

I believe you can get your ears tested in Barnard Castle.

It's true, you drop them off and pick them up a couple of hours later

Same time sig? Don’t think so.

Indeed. As we all know, Golden Brown is in 31/2/4.
Hm. May need some formatting. 😉

On reflection you may be right but my point remains. The shining star here is the stellar jazz arrangement of a great tune. Video trickery is clever but forgetful...

 The opening 8 bars with Joe Morello's head accents in unison with the bass drum accents is very amusing.

:D

Belittle the video editing all you like - I was completely taken in! I had to search to discover that this wasn't a DB original. It was wonderful piece of trickery and I loved it. As Penn Gillette says, 'You Fooled Me".
