RIP Dave Brubeck

I know this is Dead forum but you got to give Brubeck some props! He was a legend for sure. Any videos around of Jerry covering some Brubeck tunes?

Agree with giving props to Brubeck...never saw it stated categorically...but I always assumed that the Dead experimented with time signatures in large part due to Brubeck's Time Out album...that's entirely what that album was based on. A jazz man all his life and lived to damn near 92...incredible.

Sad. I ironically read on his wiki page how he fought with a teacher as he didn't think every note had to count. Interesting how diametrically different that is from JG.

Sad news. Time Out is one of my all time favorite albums. Got to see him once at the Newport Jazz Festival, glad I did although his fingers were clearly aging.

Not that i am even remotely qualified to argue with Brubeck but aside from a grace note how is it that every note shouldn't count? You can change time signatures from measure to measure if you so desired but they still have to count. I must be missing something.

Not really sad- he was like 92?? A great life lived.

Almost done listening to Time Out now. This was one of my dad's favorite records. I still have his copy, I believe he bought it in '59 when it was released. One of those soundtracks to my childhood things. We occasionally play "Take 5" it's a fun tune. Maybe I'll have to break it out at my next gig . . . I hope he's somewhere playing with Paul Desmond now
