Happy 90th Birthday Dave Brubeck! (Video)

Dave Brubeck turns 90 today! What’s your favorite Brubeck composition? (Don’t say Take Five – that one’s by Paul Desmond!)

I’ve been fortunate to see Mr. Brubeck live on several occasions: even in his eighties, he still played imaginatively and with assuredness. When I got the chance to talk with him after a gig at the Iron Horse in Northampton, Massachusetts, he was gracious and generous with his time: eager to talk about classical composition projects.

Here’s hoping his tenth decade is just as prolific!
