One of the most popular jazz musicians of the 1950s and ’60s, Brubeck died while on his way to a cardiology appointment, according to Russell Gloyd, his producer, conductor and manager for 36 years.

Brubeck’s quartet produced the first jazz album that sold more than 1 million copies and was best known for the melodic composition “Take Five.”

His cool, West Coast sound defied traditional forms by playing in two keys at once, a harmonic approach that gave jazz a new angle. The band stayed together for 16 years and was one of the most popular in jazz history, winning a cult following among students through regular performances on university campuses.

Time out for Dave Brubeck!  I am grateful that I have had the good fortune of hearing this musical genius perform.  I will go listen for awhile now.
