Support 88Nine And This Artist:
David Warren Brubeck (born December 6, 1920 in Concord, California - December 5, 2012) was an American jazz pianist who has written a number of jazz standards, including In Your Own Sweet Way and The Duke. He was probably best known for Take Five, written by Paul Desmond, who was the saxophonist in The Dave Brubeck Quartet. Brubeck's style ranged from refined to bombastic, reflecting his mother's attempts at classical training and his improvisational skills. Much of his music employs unusual time signatures.
