Thanks Dave

The burden of law school study was often lightened by this man's music on my turntable. After law school when I owned the Jazz Club, Brubeck's airy riffs went well with a late night whiskey after the patrons were sent home and the musicians hung around the bar in their version of happy hour at 2:30 A.M. One of the old Philly piano players once looked over the rim of his Remy and said to me:" Figures you'd love bein' a white boy an' all...but man could he swing and you do have taste." I was saddened today to hear of Dave's passing.

I grew up spinning Brubeck on the Old Man's Thorens turntable. His experiment with timing threw most folk off. Hard to dance to. Easy to drink to.

Brubeck, not my Old Man.
