One of my greatest music heroes died earlier today. Just one day short of his 92nd birthday. Dave Brubeck’s music was introduced to me by my late father when I was very young, I still have an EP in vinyl that my father had. Brubeck’s music was clean, sophisticated and cool! Well, I just don’t have the words to describe his music. It wasn’t until Brubeck was in his 80’s that I started to discover more about the man, his music, his family and the musicians he played with. The guy was an inspiration and I strongly recommend that you catch as many of the tribute programmes that will be on TV and radio as possible.
I will miss him (and my father) and will be playing a lot of his music over the next few days and weeks.
