RIP Dave Brubeck

Dave Brubeck, 91, died today.

The musician, whose recordings included Take Five and Blue Rondo a la Turk, was once designated a "living legend" by the US Library of Congress.


He died on Wednesday morning in hospital in Connecticut, his manager Russell Gloyd told the Chicago Tribune newspaper.
The musician, who played with the likes of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald would have turned 92 on Thursday.

He's one of those who I thought was already dead, but now that he is, I'm sad. Amazing talent.

Wow. Take Five is my alarm song, and wakes me up every single morning. It will always be one of my favorite songs. RIP Dave.

Not just a Jazz legend, but a pioneering humanitarian. It was apparently very common for Dave to cancel an appearance at clubs with segregation. He was a staunch believer in equality. A good man.

Cool. I did not know that.

I blew on a sax for a while today in his memory. RIP
