Sad news, but MAN what a great run he had.

That's really sad, he had a great influence in my life.
I remember, I didn't even like music that much in high school, even though my bro had a $1000 speakers (wierd, yes I just didn't care how good they sounded, wasn't interested that much in music).
That was until I heard Brubeck on an cheap panasonic radio, I was a captivated :O and I've LOVED smooth jazz ever since, this has led me to appreciating more and more genres of music. Anyway, just wanted to say R.I.P Dave Brubeck.

Very sad news. His off-beat jazz is so addictive to listen to. I remember listening to Brother Can you Spare a Dime and only realising later that it was just a piano solo and there isn't another instrument playing, such is the depth of the tune.

Who could play cross rhythms like Brubeck? Saw him in Bath and London. Met him in Berlin with Jerry Mulligan after his concert at the philharmonic in 1972? A wonderful musician and a real gentleman. RIP indeed with a little 5/4.

"Brubeck was often called the "Ambassador of the Cool," but he was more.

 

He was the ambassador for a new America."
