Blue Rondo a la Turk - Dave Brubek Quartet

Legbamel Not-Pop

For those of you who missed it, Dave Brubek died today just one day short of his 92nd birthday. If you're not a jazz fan you may not be familiar with his work but you're missing out on some amazingly creative music. Take this opportunity to get out on the Internet and have a listen.

To get you started I'll share a song of his that I've loved as long as I can remember, an increasingly long time. Blue Rondo a la Turk showcases Brubek's fascination with unusual rhythms and the sorts of flights that make up great jazz in between. Have a listen and spare a moment of silence for one of the most talented musicians of the 20th Century.
