    Default R.I.P. Dave Brubeck

    "Dave Brubeck, a jazz musician who attained pop-star acclaim with recordings such as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk," died Wednesday (5th December) in the morning, at Norwalk Hospital, in Norwalk, Conn., said his longtime manager-producer-conductor Russell Gloyd.

    Brubeck was one day short of his 92nd birthday. He died of heart failure, en route to "a regular treatment with his cardiologist,” said Gloyd." from Chicagotribune.com

    Gone, but will never be forgotten............

    I remember playing 'take five' at a gig, one night, with my friend Keith. We both played tenor saxes, but as Keith is registered blind, he couldn't read the music. I played from the music, as I sight read, and all the nuances are there in the little dots, even though the rhythm is uncommon (5/4) .*

    *My little joke, as 4/4 is called common time!

    Blimey, only just read this - the day after he died I played 'Take Five' when Si was here in the morning dropping his amps off. I had no idea he had passed away the day before.
