Talking the new Dave Brubeck quartet

I just went to a Dave Brubeck concert in Santa Barbara with my mom. It was nothing short of awe-inspiring. Brubeck is eighty three years old, old enough to be my grandpa, and the other band members, Randy Jones on drums, Bobby Militello on sax, and Micheal Moore on bass, were also pretty old. Even so, they were definitely young at heart, and they could jam like it’s nobody’s business.

I only recognized three of the songs, and could only name two of them: “I’ve got Rhythm,” and “Take Five,” which they played at the concerts finale, with Randy Jones playing an extended drum solo that must’ve been at least five straight minutes.

The quartet is putting out several new records and has been out touring the US and Europe with a very busy schedule. Amazing.

Sort of about Dave but not really

I saw his son, Matt, with his band Oranj Symphonette a few years ago. For those of you who don't know, they do Mancini tunes - really excellent stuff.

I cried when they played Moon River.

I think he mentioned his son, Matt, at the concert. At least, I remember in the flyer they handed out, it was mentioned that at Brubeck’s eightieth birthday, he and his sons played at the London Symphony Orchestra…

They played @ a Cathedral in downtown Milwaukee, my mom won tickets, she went w/my stepdad. They also only recognized 2 songs.

I think it's great they're still out there playing.
