FITNESSDUDE has it right. Maybe its my age, but I just cant see what any sane person sees in todays crop of "talented singers". I think I heard my folks say that when every young girl went crazy over Frank Sinatra, who in my book is one of the really great balladeers.
FYI : Did you know that Brubeck almost became a cowboy on his parents cattle ranch? He sure made the right choice.
He was not only a wonderful musician but a truly delightful human being as well. He encouraged many, many others and truly was an uplifting influence on the world through his words and actions. I will miss having him in this world.
Two of our local stations have programmed extended tributes to Mr. Brubeck since his passing and it's been a pleasure to hear such a wide range of his work through the days.
I'm a long time jazz drummer - been a fan of Brubeck for many years. Thankfully it's an industry that lives on through recordings and future generations will hopefully embrace the greatness that was Dave Brubeck.
