    Default Remembering Dave Brubeck

    To the true gambler, money is never an end in itself, but simply a tool; as language is to thought.

    Wow, 114 views. I wonder if 114 people actually listened to Take Five. Maybe I should provide a link to Blue Rondo a la Turk which was another huge Brubeck hit.

    I had a listen. I'm sure he was a master.... but jazz isn't really my bag.

    BTW, that "has anyone ever told you that you look like Dave Brubeck" story I was telling you about.... well, having now seen what he looked like, I can tell you that he looked nothing like him.

    I think I confused you (or you forgot the story) about the guy at the poker table who supposedly looked like Dave Brubeck. Having now seen what the real Dave Brubeck looked like, I now know that the guy at the poker table looked nothing like the real Dave Brubeck. It's unlikely he could play like him either.

    I might have had a senior moment!

    I listened. I already knew the song anyway, but just to honor the man, I listened.
    FWIW, I personally have great misgivings when someone says they don't like jazz. I wonder if they are secretly communists.
    Which Tim might be, so, hey, not that there's anything wrong with that.

    LMFAO ... unless you have accidently quoted a great Sienfeld line, just what are wondering about Tim?

    Well deduced, Sir. You should have been a spy. I'm definitely a leftie although not a communist. I prefer the descriptor of social democrat.
