My favourite piece:
Just such a strange beat to try to dance to. Which is the point, of course.
So Much For Subtlety

I don’t want to detract from the late Dave Brubeck, but it is a bit sad that the Tellie listed his obit first. Ahead of Dame Elizabeth Murdoch, who merely lived a life of good deeds and general niceness, OK. But ahead of Major-General Deane-Drummond? Read his obituary. They don’t make them like that any more.
No wonder when only the Tellie remembers them and even then, in third place.

Thats a very square dance to an incredibly un-square beat! Good innings though Mr Brubeck

I’m fond of this one (which I heard sung by Carmen McRae in a dive in SF in ’66).

Not mentioned in any obit I’ve read, is Mr. Brubeck’s work in apartheid South Africa, when he formed and encouraged black musicians and bands in the townships, as well as incorporating african rhythms and harmonies into his music. His son , as far as I know, still carries this work out.
