Dave Brubeck: 1920-2012

American jazz legendĀ Dave Brubeck passed away today at the age of 91.

Like many people, I heard The Dave Brubeck Quartet’s “Take Five” many times growing up, but it wasn’t until around 2002 that I started their buying albums.

Over the past few years, I’ve started listening to those albums more and more (mostly because I can’t listen to anything with lyrics when I write).

Ninety-one years is a pretty good run. Creating what Brubeck did within those 91 years makes it a pretty great run.

I know what I’m listening to today,
