Dave Brubeck is Dead. The Only Jazz I Listened To.
I wore out his album Time Further Out.
One particular tune got played over and over and over. “Unsquare Dance”
Written by Dave Brubeck in 1961 it is in 7/4 time I was mesmerised by it. Brubeck said in the liner notes that it was written and recorded the same day.
At the end of the piece the drummer chuckles “yeah!” as they make it.
I loved this album.
Here’s a tumbler that has a lot of his great stuff.
Sorry to hear about Mr. Brubeck’s passing. I listen to more jazz than you, apparently, but if there were a movie made of my life, Blue Rondo a la Turk would have to make the soundtrack album. I’ve interrupted my Christmas carols on the iPod to cue up some Brubeck.
