Dave Brubeck's seminal album wasn't the first jazz that attracted me; even by the time this music hit the world, I was hooked. But, whilst other performers and composers have come and gone, there's no denying that I still listen to Brubeck. I expect there will be other more fitting tributes, but I should like to have this recording on my blog as a small symbol of my respect. And Joe Morello's laugh at the end, as he manages to get though the tricky 7/4 time signature, sums up my feelings as I listen to the music. Thanks, Dave.
