Sono Luminus offers a magnificent collection of works from the hands of Dave Brubeck, brought to life in this debut recording from the Pacific Mozart Ensemble, Brubeck & American Poets, under the baton of  conductor Lynne Morrow.

Dave Brubeck, revered as a jazz pianist, is a composer of a rich stream oof 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. His thoughts about the poets and the composition of these works are included in the booklet.
