Last week, one of the giants of Jazz music has passed away. Dave Brubeck was a genius musician, who also helped bringing Jazz to a wider audience. He was the 2nd ever Jazz musician to be featured on the cover of Time magazine (back in 1954!). In 1959, he released the album Time Out, which was the first ever Jazz album to sell over 1 Million copies.
Brubeck’s most recognizable piece,” Take 5″, is also featured on this album – watch it here in a live version recorded in Germany in 1966.
Goodbye Dave, and thank you for the wonderful music!
