    Re: RIP Dave Brubeck

    I went to see him many years back based on the Take 5 album I still own. Paul Desmond was a highlight for me. Good to remember Both of them, and the bombing of Pearl Harbor on this date in 1941

    I also went to see him in his later years. He had to be escorted onto the stage and held up while walking, but once he sat down, his fingers did the talking.

    Dave Brubeck died years ago (2012). This is “almost” fake news.

    Re: RIP Dave Brubeck

    We spent a long afternoon visiting Dave and Iola Brubeck at their home in Connecticut in June of 1987. We were visiting my parents who lived in Stamford, CT to drop off our then eight year old daughter while we went to Europe. My brother who also lived in Stamford casually asked whether we would like to visit the Brubecks. Of course! My brother got to know them when he and his then wife and Dave's son Chris and his then wife were in Lamaze classes for their first children to be. Dave and Iola (later joined by son Chris) were extremely gracious to us. He didn't play for us (my wife did get to play Dave's big Baldwin concert grand), but he showed us what he was working on. It was a choral piece for the Pope's upcoming visit to the US later that fall and the mass he would say at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, not far from where Dave had grown up. He explained to us the complexities of the composition, including the use of counterpoint and other techniques. Brubeck had studied at Mills College under the famed French classical composer Darius Milhaud (his oldest son is named Darius). We heard part of the composition in a tape recording that Dave had made with a group of singers to test out the composition. Quite an afternoon.
