Brubeck: Were you a fan?
Dec 6, 2012

I was.

The man gave me one of the most precious gifts I ever enjoyed as a young man. His music, which was was cool, classy, but accessible enough that you could whistle it, or even dance to it, too, IF you remembered to count to five or seven!

It came at just the right time for me....

...(between the end of the Chatterley ban and The Beatles first LP...)

With Brubeck's promptings I learned to recognised the similarities with the Classical Baroque (J.S. Bach) and then Mozart...

... coming by the back route to half-way decent Rock-and-Roll, and R&B... etc.

Now I enjoy all kinds of music, at some level or another... all down to that man, his piano, and not forgetting Paul Desmond.

Thank you, Dave. Take Five.
