"REFLECTIONS." Dave Brubeck Quartet. Concord Jazz CJ 299. Is the clarinet coming back? Certainly, Bill Smith runs away with the honors here; with or without the multiphonics (which he employs extensively and effectively), he is one of the most original and persuasive exponents of the horn. Playing eight of his own works, Brubeck is in generally good form, never overextending himself. His son Chris has become one of the most capable electric bassists, delivering an imaginative solo on "I'd Walk a Country Mile." "We Will All Remember Paul" (for Paul Desmond) is a waltz of rare beauty. 4 stars.
