  •  I was introducted to Jazz................ (4+ / 0-)

    through Mr. Brubeck back in the early 1960s. Does anyone else remember seeing what had to be one of the first attempts at a "music video" featuring Brubeck playing "Blue Rondo ala Turk?"

    I don't remember which TV show it was on but as Dave was playing the piano the visual was that he and his piano were  on a magic carpet flying over the LA Freeways;  pretty neat stuff for back then.

    In any event, I loved his music. "Take five" is probably one of the top ten musical pieces that dominated my youth.

    RIP Mr. Dave.
