Dave Brubeck is 90
Today is jazz great Dave Brubeck's 90th birthday and that brings back some wonderful memories for The Ancient One. I first saw the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959 at Baker's Keyboard Lounge in Detroit. What a night! Brubeck was joined by Paul Desmond on Sax, Joe Morello on Drums and Eugene Wright on Bass. It was truly the way straight ahead jazz was meant to be heard; a small rather smoky little club. 51 years later The Anceint One has not forgotten.
