Dave, I've been a listener of your music since I was a teenger. You've been a great spokesman for Jazz! Now you can play in heaven's choir. RIP.

We had the pleasure of seeing Dave and his band at the Dakota about one year ago. He still had it, and everyone still requested Take Five for the encore. Thanks for the music Mr. Brubeck, it will live on.

Godspeed, Mr Brubeck. You have influenced & entertained countless people over the years & the world is a better place because of it. However, I am sorry that your most noted & inspirational piece has been reduced to backround music in ads for yuppie-centric grocery stores.

Mr. Brubek's influence went well past only jazz - his style and understanding of music had a lot to do with the evolution of rock. RIP

I've probably played Take Five more than all other jazz tunes combined. I'll never forget hearing his group with Clark Terry sitting in at Basin Street East. He was a great player and innovator and a great man. He believed in fairness and equal rights and proved it by his unwillingness to compromise when confronted with racism. RIP Great Man
