Paul Desmond is also worth a listen. I'm sure he worked with Brubeck. Song to a Seagull is just haunting and I think Emily is also very low & pretty

Love Dave Brubeck!!! He and Paul Desmond have made some gorgeous music together Like, for example Take 5, which I automatically think of when thinking of Brubeck/Desmond ...

If you like Paul Desmond, you might also try Art Pepper. Similar tones - not as edgy as Coltrane and coming out of similar big-band styles but firmly in the bebop mode (if any of that makes sense...). I'm always amazed how many deadheads and abb fans - fans of musicians who take chances - don't gravitate to jazz as well.

'Take Five' was the first jazz tune I ever got into. I saw Brubeck on tv explaining how the beat was different than traditional to give it that distinct sound. So, Brubeck was playing Central Park in a trio with Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan (at that point a former member of Brubeck's quartet) was playing Carnegie Hall. They must have come on late after an opening act because soon after they started playing Mulligan appears and the crowd goes crazy. My 36 year old son, Jason, was an infant at this time and I remember walking around with him to keep him busy and quiet and while sitting on a swing with him at the back of the arena (Wollman in Central Park) a guy came over to ask if the baby liked jazz! Jason likes a lot of different types of music-maybe this is why.

Desmond is my favorite alto sax player of all time. Lots of great recordings with Brubeck and on his own.
