Dave Brubeck was one of my first favorite Jazz musicians once I started listening to Jazz, and when I learned to play the drums, Take Five was one of my favorite numbers, especially the drum solo by Joe Morello. It is indeed a sad day to lose such a brilliant musician.
“One of the reasons I believe in jazz is that the oneness of man can come through the rhythm of your heart. It’s the same anyplace in the world, that heartbeat. It’s the first thing you hear when you’re born — or before you’re born — and it’s the last thing you hear.” —Dave Brubeck
We’ll miss you Dave.
RIP Dave Brubeck
