This program captures the Dave Brubeck Quartet's performance in Moscow with the Russian National Orchestra at the Bolshoi Hall of the Moscow Conservatory of Music. This was the first time that jazz had been performed at this most prestigious venue and Brubeck himself was considered to be an unofficial ambassador of goodwill. The program also features Brubeck discussing his 50 year career as a jazz pianist and a jam session with Russian jazz musicians at the Spaso House. Also included is a seminar with students of the Moscow Conservatory for whom jazz was for a long time banned and therefore, felt in many ways like a musical style that represented freedom. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide
