Jazz at Oberlin (Blue Vinyl), the landmark album by the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet, was recorded live in Finney Chapel on March 2, 1953.
In 1953, most music schools across the country were dedicated exclusively to the study of classical music. Jazz was played clandestinely and had only an underground following. Engineers from WOBC, the Oberlin College’s radio station, recorded the concert, and Brubeck’s label, Fantasy, later obtained the tapes and produced the album.
