Re: Dave Brubeck Dies

Saw him live a couple of times before he was well known. Could be a little "way out" for my taste. But liked Take Five and another of his I think Unsquare Dance.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Recall seeing him in 1950s and also Modern Jazz Quartet.
First record I bought was Brubeck's Perdido with great Paul Desmond.
