Across The Americas
Legendary jazz pianist and innovator Dave Brubeck died today; he was one day shy of his 92nd birthday.
Rest in peace Mr Brubeck.
I am sitting by the wood stove listening to all my Brubeck. I am glad someone else out there is also thinking about him. When I was a teenager and heard “Blue Rondo ala Turk”, I was transformed. It was also Wes Montgomery, Louis, Fats Waller, and so many others but Brubeck and Desmond’s time signature were a tempo I could understand. Cheers
I listened to Brubeck most of the day at the jobsite after I heard the news that he had passed. He truly will be missed.
