Music Ja/z listings


Dave Brubeck is one of the most famous names in jazz, and the octogenarian pianist and composer is still going strong. He visits Scotland with his well- established quartet for two dates as part of a UK tour, and both his old and his present record companies have jumped on the bandwagon with CD releases. Park Avenue South features his current group captured live last year at a Starbucks Manhattan store on that very street, while The Essential Dave Brubeck is a two- disc set gathering many of his most famous tunes, including his most famous composition

that he didn't actually write, Paul Desmond's classic ‘Take Five'.

Brubeck always divided opinion among hardcore jazzers, but has achieved popular appeal that comes to few jazz musicians. and is one of the music‘s handful of genuine household names. (Kenny Mathieson).
