Friend of mine is a pianist in a jazz ensemble; said he'd probably slip in a bit of Take Five in one of his solos tonight.

I hear you're mad about Brubeck
I like your eyes I like him too
He's an artist a pioneer
We've got to have some music on the new frontier

Way to go for the most obvious and predictable headline, subby.

Jazz is terrible. It's like getting five people in a room to play five different songs at the same time and each song is shiat.*

That makes me sad.
I loved his work.
Thanks Dave, rest in peace.

I swear I knew what the headline would be the moment I heard he had passed.

That's why I always preferred big band, but Brubeck's quartet was always very coherent for a small jazz group.

Spoken like a man who's never played a note in his life.

But here's a hint: most ensemble "jazz" is scored, it's not nearly as improvised as you think Even Dixieland, which is highly improvisational, has some pretty strict rules about who does what and when.

I opted for the album title (Time Out) in my rejected headline.

/"Blue Rondo a la Turk" is pretty jammin'

RIP jazzman, you were one of my biggest influences on piano.

Tax Boy: Dave Brubeck didn't write Take Five.

[media.tumblr.com image 352x240]


Welll, what do you know. I just checked out wikipedia:
Take Five" is a jazz piece written by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet on their 1959 album Time Out... Upon his death in 1977, Desmond left the rights to royalties for performances and compositions, including "Take Five", to the American Red Cross, which has since received combined royalties of approximately $100,000 per year.
That's kind of cool.

At any rate, I saw Dave Brubeck about a year and a half ago, and he was still a pretty damned good performer at age 89.

Best vanity plate ever - I saw blue Kia Rondo with the plate "ALA TURK".

Ah Paul Desmond wrote Take Five. Dave Brubeck had some great bands, pushed the two-tone lineup early. Very refreshing performances when they played anything.

I got to see him play about a month before that at Purdue. He may have been a little old/slow but the rest of his band had a ton of energy

The Secret Life of Machines

Now only did this show expose me to a lot of cool internal workings of machines it introduced me to Dave Brubeck
 
2012-12-05 02:42:04 PM
I had no idea he was still alive. Well, until now.

Tip of the hat to The Secret Life of Machines by introducing me to Dave Brubeck.
