Rest In Peace, Dave Brubeck

 

Jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck passed away today, just a day short of his 92nd birthday. The prolific talent openly spoke out against racism in the jazz scene and didn’t stop with his against the grain mentality there. Brubeck welcomed experimentation and fusion into his jazz style, turning his nose up at traditionalists.

Today we lost a jazz great, however, behind him is a body of work and a career that is immortal.
