A historic collaboration by two of jazz music's greatest artists is finally
available on 180g Double LP Set! Impex Records' deluxe production captures the
amazing outdoor acoustics with fine detail and wide dynamic range. The beautiful gatefold jacket is coated in a vintage high-gloss lacquer.
The White House Session, Live 1962 contains inspired performances of classic
tunes "Take Five", "Castilian Blues", "Lullaby of Birdland", and "I Left My
Heart In San Francisco".
"Bennett's vocals are particularly natural and present-sounding... Brubeck's group in its prime, with Paul Desmond on Alto, Eugene Wright on bass and Joe Morello on drums... Bennett/Brubeck is nonetheless a record I found myself playing more times than I expected to before sitting down to write this. There's something about a live performance from a time when life was so much simpler, even if more jittery and dangerous because of the cold war, that makes you want to go back in time and enjoy it all again." - Michael Fremer,

For the first time ever on 180g LP, this two LP set is beautifully re-mastered
and the original artwork has been carefully replicated.
Two remarkable visionaries at the peak of the powers, Dave Brubeck and his
quartet and Tony Bennett (both with his group and with Bennett with trio) give
hot performances of some of their biggest hits: Brubeck's revved up "Take Five,"
and Tony Bennett's soulful "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."
Playing the popular White House Sessions concert on the Washington Mall for
President John F. Kennedy, these titans of popular jazz have a great time
informing, joking and playing the lights out. You'll want to play the grooves
out of Impex's impeccably produced issue of this lost treasure. Quiet surfaces,
incredible dynamics, full frequency responses and deluxe packaging will provide
years of listening and viewing pleasure.
"This is intimacy with a capital 'I', a long-forgotten set performed on the
Washington Mall for President Kennedy. Brubeck naturally offered "Take Five" and
three more; Bennett obliged with "I Left My Heart In San Francisco", "Lullaby of
Broadway", "One For My Baby", "Rags To Riches", "Just In Time" and five
more—four with Brubeck's backing. This is one to treasure." - Ken Kessler,
