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.
