Farewell Dave. Godspeed.

Today Dave Brubeck died. He was born 6 Dec, 1920. For me, he was one of the few jazz names that I knew, having listened to his famous Take Five as a high schooler. It was a haunting tune, regardless of whether you liked jazz or not. Unlike Thelonius Monk, his form was more traditional and easy on the ears. His drummer was the cream of the crop for many, many years also.

Another legend is gone. May he rest in peace. Long live his music.
