RIP: Dave Brubeck

Jazz pianist Dave Burbeck passed away today. I was first introduced to his music through Keith Emerson, who used Blue Rondo a la Turk as a frequent encore piece, throughout his entire career.

Although I never got to see Dave live or meet him in person, I did know his son, Dan, since he lived around Woodstock, and played in Jazz Fusion band called the Dolphins.

Guess I'll have to listen to Time Out tonight.
