Brubeck's Birthday

Today is the 88th birthday of jazz legend Dave Brubeck. The first jazz record I bought was his Time Out, and I've been a huge fan ever since. I had the chance to see him live last year and he can still put on an amazing show. I was hoping to see him again when he was at Blue Note last weekend, but couldn't. He's still touring, still receiving awards, and still recording albums.

Here are a couple YouTube selections of my favorite Brubeck tunes.

Blue Rondo a la Turk:

Always trying to find the best. Though you really can't go wrong with Brubeck.
