Talk about a true pioneer - - - - he knocked down all the barriers and put Jazz Music on Top 40 Radio stations everywhere. Desmond had the chops and Dave had the concept.
Rest in Peace, Mr. Jazzman
P.S. I've heard Clinton blow and I doubt very seriously he ever mastered Take Five.

He was an inspiration to all.
God rest his soul.

Dave Brubeck was a musical genius and will be missed by everyone who enjoyed good jazz.
I know he had a few sons who were also into jazz and I think were also part of his band at one point.
He lived for many years in Westport, Connecticut.
Another legend in the music business that will surly be missed.

5 count beat
A guy I worked with had a part time band, He said that formally trained musicians had a hard time playing Brubeck's music, they were trained on either 3 or 4 beats to a measure, Brubeck's jazz was 5 beats and the formal musicians brains couldn't grasp 5 beats.
