It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
My brother and I grew up listening to the Dave Brubeck Quartet (along with many other jazz greats of that era) - for many years we had every album they put out...his music will live for a very long time to come...

Thanks Bobpickle and KarelG! Appreciate the listen.
On the day that Brubeck died, I was listening to a tribute show on Sirius/XM dedicated to him and they were playing all these recordings I have never heard. And that's when I realized, we've done a disservice to Dave Brubeck by attributing ONLY Take 5 to him, and this one was actually written by Paul Desmond.
But after hearing song after song of the material that actually came from Brubeck, I was left with a sense of "Wow -- what a melodic genius."
So while I make a tribute with Take 5, I encourage everyone to look at the other records. There's much more here than meets the eye (& ear). One thing I can say after listening to his other tunes -- he makes every note count.
