DaveBrubeck tribute


We've lost a GREAT and one of my all time favourite Musicians:(

Dave Brubeck, a jazz pianist and composer known for recordings such as Take Five and Blue Rondo a la Turk, has died in Norwalk, Conn., according to his manager-producer.
He was one day shy of his 92nd birthday.

Brubeck died Wednesday morning of heart failure after being stricken while on his way to a cardiology appointment with his son Darius, said his manager Russell Gloyd.

Brubeck was enormously influential in the 1950s and 1960s, creating challenging music with unusual time signatures and adventurous sounds.
He and his Dave Brubeck Quartet, formed in 1951, were also extremely popular. His 1959 recording Time Out is among the best-selling jazz albums of all time.

In 1954, Brubeck was the first modern jazz musician to have his picture on the cover of Time magazine.

Time Out is a collection of numbers written in unconventional time signatures.
The opening song, Blue Rondo a la Turk, is in 9/8 time — with nine beats to the measure instead of the customary two, three or four beats and features Brubeck on piano. Another track, Take Five — in 5/4 time — became the Quartet's signature theme.
