Dave and his group put on a tremendous show and it seemed like our whole city was watching them.
<> next day, when DAVE BRUBECK was having lunch at the Snowdon Deli:
Waiter, oh waiter, could you come over here, please?
Something wrong Mister Brubeck?
I'll say there is. What's this fly doing in my soup?
Looks to me he's doing the backstroke.
Take Five was on of my favorites.
I was busy yesterday and couldn't post this, but December 6th was the occasion of what would've been Dave Brubeck's 102nd birthday. I've remained a huge fan from the '50s, actually getting his personal permission to arrange a couple of his songs for both my Masters Recital and to perform with symphony orchestras on several occasions when I used to be in the KT and we performed lots of Pops Concerts. So happy birthday, Dave.
