Not sure why Dec 6 is mentioned,...unless this site is in Australia.

Local Kjazz station at Cal State long Beach is playing some of his great music.

I saw him perform live when he was around 82 — simply amazing. Most of the performance was jazz, but since he was at Georgetown University, one of the beautiful pieces he conducted was a choral mass, with the refrain “Bow down, bow down.” It was gorgeous. I have not been able to find where it is recorded, if any freepers can help.

Dave’s contributions to Jazz go beyond his compositions, style and musical talent. I met him once after a show, a truly nice guy.

Mr. Brubeck, thank you for much great music including the iconic version of Paul Desmond’s “Take Five” and “Unsquare Dance”. Rest easily

I saw in in concert with his sons about 35 years ago. Many are claimed to be legends, few people qualify. He’s one of the ones who qualify. RIP

I hear you’re mad about Brubeck
I like your eyes, I like him too
He’s an artist, a pioneer
We’ve got to have some music on the new frontier.

RIP Dave

RIP Dave Brubeck. I’m mentally humming one of your tunes as I type.
