David Warren “Dave” Brubeck has died.


Dave Brubeck Quartet‘s was best remembered for the rare, jazz cross-over hit, “Take Five“.

Panic Manual said this of a recent performance of the jazz great,

Dave Brubeck had the crowd in the palm of his hand all night long, from the standing ovation that greeted him to the one that bid him farewell and just wouldn’t stop. He gave us the benefit of his self-depricating sense of humour, telling us it’s a “good thing you clapped before you heard me play,” the only man in the room who didn’t think a brilliant show was in the offing.
