Take 4:32 (Dave Brubeck tribute)

file under: the joints are really flipping

(when I heard about the passing of Mr. Brubeck, I thought to post a video of a performance of Oranj Symphonette, featuring Matt Brubeck, his son, on the strength that this was the first of the Brubecks I had ever met, and when I started sussing around for suitable footage, I found a short film about Matt’s bandmate in that project, reeds player Ralph Carney — the uncle of Black Keys drummer, Pat Carney — and that same film maker had a clip about a West Indies Parade in Brooklyn, which lead me to this, from Martinique; for people who want more info on Brubeck I recommend Richard Scheinin’s story in the Merc, or I want to see what is in the Times. I also think of Brubeck as an early champion of the young Taylor Eigsti, who later hired some of the Brubeck’s in his group; I also enjoy correcting people about Paul Desmond being the writer of the big hit; also, how soon until another jazz musician makes the cover of Time? mbw)
