The one and only. My brother and I were teens when Brubeck was doing his fabulous best. Loved him then, love him now. Listen to this viruoso performance of his most famous work: TAKE FIVE.
from the transcendent album, TIME OUT.
Paul Desmond at the alto sax is so smooth, so cool. And here's the Quartet's performance of STRANGE MEADOWLARK
as a bonus. My brother reminded me, only just today, that we saw Dave Brubeck Live at Hunter College in the early sixties. I had totally forgotten. No doubt about it, my memory is shot.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Brubeck!!
Yay! I remember introducing my son to Brubeck's work with this very track!!!!ReplyDelete
(As a great amateur musician, my son now introduces me to various 'new' artistes!!)
Sue: I'll be listening to Brubeck all day today. Just in commemoration, you understand. ;)ReplyDelete
I know relatively NOTHING about 'new' music or today's performers and yet, I'm happy. :)
