|Dave Brubeck, 1987|
Brubeck was a pianist, composer, rhythmic innovator and bandleader who worked comfortably both in jazz and classical circles. Many of his liturgical works were nothing short of brilliant.
|Dave and Iola Brubeck|
Dave was as amiable and gracious as anyone I've ever known in jazz. He was a true gentleman and he shall be missed.
I'm sharing two of my favorite photos of Dave:
- The black & white performance shot was taken in June 1987 at George Wein's Newport Jazz Festival in Saratoga Springs, NY.
- The color shot of Dave and Iola Brubeck was taken in September 2004 at a Tanglewood Jazz Festival seminar in Lenox, MA.
