Brubeck and Desmond. It does not get better.

Maybe I should have said that it doesn't get any better. Godspeed, Mr. Brubeck.

I went into the Army in 1957 as a Rock & Roll fan, but after Basic, my advanced training put me in an outfit with mostly Joe College types.

It was one of those guys who put me onto progressive jazz, by introducing me to Brubeck and Desmond for openers, which led to Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, Ella Fitzgerald, The Four Freshmen, Julie London, and many more I’ve forgotten. Great memories. Want to dig out my old vinyl albums!
