I hit the Montreal Jazz Fest last night to see a show at Place Des Arts. Well, David Brubeck was on the menu, celebrating the 50th anniversary of "Time Out". Now I am relatively new to Jazz, but wow this performance blew me away. As a newbie, even I am familiar with his works. "Take Five" absolutely floored me! Did anyone else from the audiogon community happen to check out the show? I am curious what you thought of it, if you did.
I saw Brubeck and Ramsey Lewis last year in Eugene, Oregon and both were incredible. Brubeck moves pretty slowly to the piano bench now, but once he sits down it sounds just like the old days. He hasn't lost a thing.
