Dave Brubeck

1920 - 2012

Main instrument: Piano

Genre: Jazz

This American pianist and composer established his reputation in the mid-50s. His music had an original quality, informed by classical music influences. In his landmark compositions, he imposes his complex ideas and atypical rhythms on the music. The CD Time Out, featuring the classics Take Five and Blue Rondo à la Turk, confirmedonce and for all his quartet's place in jazz history. His longevity is legendary, keeping him more active and able than his 90 years should allow.
