I love some of his songs from the time out record though it was paul desmond (alto player) who wrote "Take Five". Real jazz snobs look down on him because he played in different time signatures and was not the most technical player.

I like him. You might want to check out a record called generations of brubeck where he plays with his sons. Very funky.

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.

Dave Brubeck is designated as College Jazz, which is to say that his music appealed to white kids in school back in the day. The label is limiting and simply useless, as Brubeck was and is a tremendous piano player with great chops. He didn't always play around with time signatures. If you want to see what he could do playing the blues... Check out Blues Roots with Gerry Mulligan on the Baritone sax. It's a hard record to find, but it will blow your hat off and clear up a lot of misconceptions on this man's music.

I've only heard Time Out...there's a few songs on it I really like, and the rest I could take or leave.

Dave Brubecks' newest album, "London Flat, London Sharp" is one of the best jazz albums in a long time, in my opinion.
