So today is Dave Brubeck’s 90th Birthday! Dave Brubeck is probably most known for starting the Dave Brubeck Quartet and their album Time Out. In case you don’t know, the Time Out album is where “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo a la Turk” made their debut. In previous posts you may have also seen me post a couple Paul Desmond tunes. He was the Alto Saxophonist in the Dave Brubeck Quartet…another reason I enjoy listening to this quartet :D Anyways, I thought I’d post a Dave Brubeck tune in honor of his birthday - I decided to choose a song that was little more uncommon than what you normally hear when people first mention Dave Brubeck - one that has a little more of Dave’s piano playing in it - so here’s “Kathy’s Waltz” a song he wrote for his daughter Cathy (actually misspelled as ‘Kathy’ on the album).

Played 120 times.
