Death of a Great Worker

I know nothing about Dave Brubeck’s politics.  His music is a different story.  Few jazz artists have been as influential as Brubeck, who died today at age 91.  Most famous for the song and album Take Five¸ Brubeck played concerts into his late 80s.  His music covered bases from jazz classics to eastern rhythms to church music.  Though Brubeck is gone, his artistic works will last as long as people listen to good music.

Here is a video of Brubeck and his quartet – the genius on saxophone is Paul Desmond – playing Take Five in 1966.
