Sad to hear this. He was one of my all time favorites. His music and listening to Paul Desmond play the sax was the reason I got involved in music many, many years ago.

A true jazz legend.

RIP. Great, great musician. I found him when I was in high school and loved jazz for the first time. I always got a kick out of Joe Morello's laugh at the end of "Unsquare Dance."

DBQ was why I fell in love with jazz at an early age. Joe Morello was
a strong influence when I started playing drums. I never saw them live, but watched them on the Steve Allen show. Mesmerizing !

When my wife and I first met we quickly found that we both loved jazz... the rest is history.

RIP Mr. Brubeck

I was a late convert to his talents - I didn't become acquainted with his music until 1962. I've been a devoted fan ever since. Farewell and God bless!
