Dave Brubeck Remembered

If someone is writing a book on jazz, you can be sure Dave Brubeck will be in it. He was the second jazz artist ever on the cover of Time Magazine, after Louis Armstrong. He is an accomplished pianist and composer, to say the least, but be careful not to pigeonhole him. Brubeck has released a classical album, which we’ll hear. He’s also written two ballets, a musical, an oratorio, four cantatas and a mass. Dave Brubeck recently died of heart failure, just one day short of his 92nd birthday. Music took him all over the world, but in his later years, he liked to spend his winters on Sanibel Island in southwest Florida. Today, we remember Brubeck in conversation with one-time WGCU reporter Ryan Warner.
