The Dave Brubeck Quartet is a jazz album released by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in several iterations between 1952 and 1962.


The album was first released in 1952, on the Fantasy Records label, as Fantasy 10" LP 3-7.[1] The tracks were recorded in September 1952 at the "Surf Club" in Hollywood, California.[2] In place of Quartet regulars Bob Bates and Joe Dodge, are Wyatt "Bull" Ruther on bass and, depending on the track, either Herb Barman or Lloyd Davis on drums.[2] The liner notes were written by Barry Ulanov. Pressings of this version are on either green or red translucent vinyl.

The album was reissued with an alternate track lineup as 3230 in 1956.[3] In addition to the 1952 recordings, this version includes a track recorded in March 1954 at the University of California. In 1962 the same tracks would be reissued again, some on an album with the same title (8093) and others on an album entitled "Jazz at Storyville" numbered 8080.[2][3] In the UK and New Zealand the album was issued as the 12" Vogue Records LP LDE 104.[4]
