Brubeck was outstanding as both a jazz pianist and as leader of his famous quartet. He was an innovator who wasn't afraid to try new and unusual things. He wasn't given proper respect and appreciation by some, but his greatness is undeniable.

For those who aren't familiar with his music, the best place to start is with his 1959 album, "Time Out". It's considered by many to be one of the five best albums in jazz history. The song "Take Five" from that album, is probably the most popular song in jazz history.
"Paranoid is just like an anchor. It really secures everything about the metal movement in one record. It's all there: the riffs, the vocal performance of Ozzy, the song titles, what the lyrics are about. It's just a classic defining moment."

--Rob Halford of Judas Priest
