"Dave Brubeck is a product not only of Judeo-Christian thinking but of the humanistic tradition of the Enlightenment. His identification with Jews, blacks, and with all who have known the lash of oppression is anything but accidental. The Hebrew Bible and most particularly the prophetic writings with their passion for social justice represent for him the essence of religious thought. Like Martin Luther King, Jr., Dave Brubeck is convinced that ‘we must learn to live together as brothers, or die together as fools.’ The Gates of Justice is a cantata based on Jewish texts, but its message is universal."- Rabbi Charles D. Mintz


   




Review By Tom Tugend,The Jewish Journal of Los Angeles,

[Dave Brubeck] "To construct a bridge of brotherhood, Brubeck used "a complex of musical styles [jazz, rock, spirituals, traditional].... Overlaying music from the Beatles, Chopin, Israeli, Mexican and Russian folksongs, Simon & Garfunkel, improvised jazz and rock, I wrote a collage of sounds for the climactic section."
