Default Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

What struck me about DB is his interview from Ken Burns Jazz. I know that documentary may be offensive to some, I had a piano teacher who called it Jazz according to Wynton but I really enjoyed some of the clips. It was Brubeck talking about his dad bringing him to places where segregation was strangling the country and how he made Dave promise to fight against that intolerance. He was a great gift for his music and his humanity.
