Video Pick Of The Week

More than any jazz musician Dave Brubeck helped to popularize jazz again in the 1950s and ’60s with recordings like “Time Out,” the first jazz album to sell a million copies, and “Take Five,” the still instantly recognizable hit single that was that album’s centerpiece. Dave brought a distinctive mixture of experimentation and accessibility that won over listeners who had been trained to the sonic dimensions of the three-minute pop single. Brubeck experimented with time signatures and polytonality and explored musical theater and the oratorio, baroque compositional devices and foreign modes. In celebration of his Brubeck’s 100th birthday on Saturday, I would like to recommend a doucmentary from 2001 Rediscovering Dave Brubeck which is an intimate portrait of this legendary and prolific jazz pianist as he recalls his extraordinary career, talks about his current projects, and explores the unique style of music-a distinctive fusion of jazz and classical-that made him so widely popular.
