Dave Brubeck – the passing of a great musician
What can I say about the passing of the great Dave Brubeck?
Genius. Civil Rights trend setter. Philanthropist. Jazz icon.
At last year’s jazz festival he was the coolest 91-year-old dude you’d ever want to meet.
And his “Take Five” (1959) is the coolest hippest single – of any genre of music – to be produced in the last 53 years.
A sad day for music. A sad day for jazz fans everywhere.
Heaven just got a little groovier…
