Dave Brubeck, a jazz musician who attained pop-star acclaim with recordings such as "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk," died Wednesday morning at Norwalk Hospital, in Norwalk, Conn., said his longtime manager-producer-conductor Russell Gloyd.

Brubeck was one day short of his 92nd birthday. He died of heart failure, en route to "a regular treatment with his cardiologist,” said Gloyd.

Throughout his career, Brubeck defied conventions long imposed on jazz musicians. The tricky meters he played in “Take Five” and other works transcended standard conceptions of swing rhythm.

He was definitely one of the giants of jazz.

And always a class act (besides being an immense talent).

His Blue Rondo a la Turk was one of the first jazz pieces I ever learned to play.

Frank,
Dave was certainly a giant in the jazz world and also a very nice person! Although I never met him face to face, he was a long-time Baldwin artist back in the "good old days" when I worked at Baldwin. My colleagues there often spoke warmly about our association with Dave. Ironically, I just heard a spot on the local NPR radio station this morning that Dave is the scheduled guest on Marian McPartland's "Piano Jazz" program airing tonight (obviously recorded at an earlier date). The announcer was saying that Mr. Brubeck is still playing as strong as ever at 91 years old. I plan to play "Take Five" a few times at my weekly solo piano gig tonight, in addition to the seasonal music that is expected this time of year. Any PW forum members that live in the Kansas City area are welcome to stop by Stroud's restaurant in Fairway,KS any Wednesday or Thursday night and I will play your favorite requests. Just ask That Piano Trucker, who had a chicken dinner there recently. Despite the sad news of Dave Brubeck's passing, I wish you and all the forum members a joyous holiday and prosperous and healthy new year!

It's difficult to articulate or quantify Dave's contribution to jazz and orchestra. More importantly for me were his achievements towards achieving equality in America.

I did not see this until today, and it is truly sad that another real ICON has passed away!

And a special THANK YOU, Diane..., for that video. It takes me back to era that I sorely miss.

I had frankly forgotten how great Joe Morello was, with an absolutely pristine "touch". I could not help noticing that he did not need seventeen microphones picking up the sound of his various drums and cymbals, to be correctly mixed later. It was sort of perfect just the way he played it, no?

By chance I recorded Dave Brubeck playing his own work
called “Thank You” in Polish.(some 4 minutes) ... stunning!

The music was inspired by Brubeck’s visit to the Chopin museum in Warsaw ... and being transported at the sight of memorabilia (including original Nocturne scores) and FC’s old piano.

An awesome pianist and composer. Blue Rondo a la Turk - one of my favourites.
