RIP Dave Brubeck

I saw him in concert a few times, as I did his son, Chris Brubeck, when I was in college. Dave Brubeck died today at the age of 91. He was performing concerts until the very end. If you are familiar with musical theory, this staple work of his, Unsquare Dance, is truly hilarious if you understand the meter he's using on this.

I ran across this article, which talks about the religious influences on Brubeck's work. It is quite unlike any other pop obituary I read on Brubeck:
