    Dave is on the piano in this clip. It's a favorite of mine.

    Sorry, but I never could get the whole idea about "jazz". Doesn't even sound like music to me, more like a bunch of people tuning up their instruments with no cohesion.....can't whistle it while walking down the street.:dunno:

    Jazz works on many levels and its a genre of music that spans more than a century with all kinds of schools and movements.

    Its not all Avant Garde.

    Benny Goodman is jazz
    Louis Armstrong is jazz
    Billy Holiday is jazz
    Frank Sinatra is jazz
    Duke Ellington is jazz


    If you really want to understand jazz you need to learn about it. Its truly an original American style of music that no other style can claim...

    A good and well done series to watch about jazz is Ken Burn's PBS series "Jazz". Once you know something about it you'll understand it and appreciate it better. But you have to make the effort.

    An example of what I'm talking about was posted above. Listen to that clip. Brubeck was an innovator of meter and rhythm. His music was very innovative in terms of the beat... Take Five was one of the first successful jazz tunes to use the Quintuple or 5/4 meter.

    I play one of his CDs at work now and then in my office. It has been borrowed by others there,(probably copied), more than once. RIP Dave.

    Fullclip,

    It's not for everyone. I think if you play you are much more likely to appreciate how incredibly hard it is to do. These guys definitely had something to say. Like the saying goes- just because you don't see it, don't mean nothin's there.
    Check out some lighter stuff if you want. I would recommend listening to Kind of Blue.

    I never got to hear the quartet live, but, as a kid, I attended a concert and a clinic featuring his drummer Joe Morello- a great guy and an amazing player.

    Wow. I started to post on the news yesterday of Mr. Brubeck's passing, didn't think there'd be so many here who would be interested.

    The original Brubeck quartet...
    So cool.
    A fascinating man.

    I know I've listened to "Take Five" (the entire album, not only the tune) hundreds of times. It's always on my MP3 player.
    First we lost Desmond, now Brubeck..

    And today would have been his 92nd birthday.

    I highly recommend "Brubeck And Desmond: The Duets"

    I was a woodwind player in high school and college. Whilst our peers were gushing over The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, we prayed at the Paul Desmond Church of Alto Saxophone. :notworthy:

    When I was playing in a rock and roll band, we used to play Take Five j just to watch the dancers get confuzzled. :supergrin:
