dave brubeck 1920 - 2012

It seems to be a particularly bad year for music legends dying. I'm quite sad to hear that Dave Brubeck has passed away aged 91 (it would have been his 92nd birthday tomorrow). With his 1959 album 'Time Out' he completely changed the jazz landscape and gave us one of the great jazz standards - 'Take Five'. I'm going to take the first track from that album, the equally loved 'Blue Rondo A La Turk' as my tribute to him. So long and thanks for the music.
