The Dave Brubeck Quartet Lyrics

You know the feeling of something half remembered
Of something that never happened, yet you recall it well
You know the feeling of recognizing someone
That you've never met as far as you could tell, well

Laura is the face in the misty light
Footsteps that you hear down the hall
The laugh that floats on a summer night
That you can never quite recall
And you see Laura on the train that is passing through
Those eyes, how familiar they seem
She gave your very first kiss to you
That was Laura but she's only a dream

One of my favorite Brubeck "pieces"...still give me chills !!

dan fiore



First time I've heard this, what an amazing interpretation, I'm a teenager again and that's about fifty years ago!


great version!


Thanks, nice to see that. Another illustration of the truism that you never know what you'll find on YouTube. You've got an odd time signature going there which I can't quite decipher. I'd like to see a picture of the hall where the '53 Brubeck concert was recorded. If you can put that up, I'll put up a picture of the building where "Jazz At Oberlin" was recorded.


@slenko72 This was a great concert, but half of it lay in a vault unreleased for almost 50 years. I have posted "Stardust" from this later release. Let me know if you would like to hear other tracks. "All The Things You Are" from the original release is outstanding.


Thank you for posting such nice words. The COP recording has been one of my favorites for 50+ years. If you can point me to any photos of the building where it was recorded I would appreciate it. Thanks.


It's there. Enjoy.
