Take five

Post by DrMatt » Wed Dec 05, 2012 5:57 pm

I'm taking five minutes of silence for Dave Brubeck.
Not exactly one of my idols but nonetheless a good guy whose positive influence was widely felt.

Didn't know he was still alive.

I'm particularly enamored of "Jazz Impressions of Japan".

Thanks for the notice. I just checked CNN's site and it's right up there at the top. He was one of a kind. I have a few of his records on CD and will take time out this evening to listen. He would have been 92 tomorrow.

Back in the 1980's, when I worked at a number of jazz festivals, Brubeck became one of the shows I had to see. Brilliant pianist, and completely without the pretension that many of his peers had.

Sad news; he was a class act.

They were all very gifted musicians. I'm particularly fond of Paul Desmond's wonderful sax playing. Sadly, he died far too young.
