I saw this early this morning. It's sad for us, but he lived a long and wonderful life and he will continue to bring joy to jazz affectionados for generations to come. I have seen Dave play maybe ten times, from the 1970s until just a couple of years ago. He was just as enjoyable recently as he was when I was 18. Thanks for the music!
I meant, 'Time Out' & 'Time Further Out', but- you probabaly already knew that. BTW: This is an excellent reissue of 'Time Further Out': ( http://www.elusivedisc.com/DAVE-BRUBECK-TIME-FURTHER-OUT-MIRO-REFLECTIONS-180g-LP/productinfo/IMXLP6002/ ) No compression/great mix/no surface noise 'Unsquare Dance' & 'Far More Drums' will really test your system's bottom end.
I agree Rodman. And although most of the public wouldn't know him or his long time friend Paul by name they have certainly enjoyed their music sometime. I started buying his albums back in the late 60's as I began to collect. I still have those old 'eye's' records, and many more modern as well. A toast to the enjoyment he provided-Cheers!
Hi Mr P- It's funny; one of the guys at work was named
Desmond. The first time he told me that; I asked if he was
named after Paul Desmond or Desmond Tutu. He's black and
still not certain, since his parents are dead(made him
wonder). I wish more of the pressing now days, were as good
as my old Columbia(eyes), 'Time Out.' I'd be buying a whole
lot more vinyl, if they were.
