Dave Brubeck (1920-2012)
5th December 2012
Equally distinguished as composer and pianist, Brubeck enjoyed popular success with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. The group's experimentation with time signatures and polytonality produced standards like Blue Rondo a la Turk and Take Five. His works published by Associated Music Publishers and Shawnee Press range from major works for chorus and orchestra to small gems for solo piano.
