Wall To Wall Brubeck

The Columbia University radio station WKCR is playing Brubeck recordings around the clock and will until 9:00 EST tonight. To hear the station, click here, then on one of the connecting links in the WKCR site’s upper right corner.

It is impossible to individually thank the Rifftides readers who have sent comments about Dave Brubeck’s passing; there are too many of you. As the comments come in, we post them with thanks to all.

More later on Brubeck.

    I express my condolences to Iola, Darius, Chris, Danny, Matthew, Cathy and the extended Brubeck family on the sad loss of Dave.

    We should celerate the life of a true jazz legend and a wonderful human being. He took a stance on discrimination issues in the 1950/60’s and beyond; often at his own cost. He was a true “Jazz Ambassador”.

    I am sure that Dave has sourced out Paul Desmond, Gerry Mulligan, Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Joe Morello and many other great jazz cats and that a great big jam session in 5/4 time is awakening the Heavens.

    Thank you for a lifetime of musical enjoyment Dave; may you rest in peace.

    A very sad loss indeed. I never saw Dave very often but he was always upbeat and friendly. There is no way to fill this void.
