Dave Brubeck: Another giant falls

Oh, to have been young and hip when the likes of Dave Brubeck ruled the world.

Well, ruled jazz at least.

But the world turns, time passes and so does the reign of giants; Dave Brubeck died Wednesday a day before his 92nd birthday.

Here, the Dave Brubeck Quartet performs in West Berlin on Nov. 6, 1966. As it happens, I found an old Stars and Stripes article on Brubeck from that very tour.

AND HERE'S a bit of nifty choreography to Brubeck's 1961 composition, "Unsquare Dance." True that.

Requiescat in pace.
