“I Hear You’re Mad About Brubeck…I like Your Eyes, I like Him Too”

God rest Dave Brubeck, the famous jazz pianist, who with Time Out (1959) gave us one of the best jazz albums of all time and who Donald Fagen name checked on his fantastic song New Frontier (1982).  He died today aged 91.  My old man sat beside him in a Jazz club in Kraków in 2003 and didn’t cop who he was until the next day.
