I have been a Dave Brubeck fan since the first time I heard Take Five, a famous jazz tune composed in 5/4 time by the great Paul Desmond and recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959. Dave Brubeck performed and recorded great, innovative jazz, with his quartet and later with his two sons for jazz fans the world over. We had the distinct pleasure of seeing Brubeck and his Quartet at the famous Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida when we lived in Saint Petersburg. In his late eighties, he wowed his audience with his interpretation of jazz classics and newer works as well. A communicator of a genre of music that is uniquely American still flourishing because of talented artists like Brubeck.
So enjoy the rare Christmas Countdown Tune performed by one of the truly great jazz pianists to ever sit down at a keyboard - NO. 10 ON THE 2019 CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN BY DAVE BRUBECK.
And for the first double take of the 2019 CHRISTMAS Countdown, enjoy the classic TAKE FIVE. It's not a Christmas Tune but it shows the mastery of the keyboards by Mr. Brubeck with his Quartet, including the great saxophonist Paul Desmond.
Jazz is perfect for Christmas Time - Merry Christmas To All,
