Dave's honorable life was indeed a life well lived. Dave's music has had a wonderfully profound impact on my family: thirty years ago, as a teenager, I discovered my dad's Brubeck LPs that he discovered 30 years prior, when he was a young traveling musician. And now my sons and I continue to play the music and the dream lives on. Godspeed Mr. Brubeck!

My father brought Dave 's music to my attention as a young girl and my life journey led my son and me right into the center of the family. Dave and Iola were a huge inspiration in our lives, including us in their family of music. I am incredibly grateful for this amazing blessing and for my close friendships with Danny and Chris. They were also very supportive to our lives(Demian and me). I posted 2 tributes on FB which many friends are reading and responding to and I sent 2 messages to Chris and Danny. I was so devastated yesterday and today and have to drive two miles to get reception and have been on a learning curve with all of this as well. My heart goes out to Iola, the wind beneath his wings, his soulmate and strength....a great team they were....and all of his brilliant and talented children...Chris, Danny, Darius, Matthew, and Cathy. I love you all and I hope you will be able to read my other posts. There are many memories that I could recall. I will do so at another time....a bit at a time.So much love....Zan Oh.....
It was through attending NCSA with Danny Brubeck that Demian and I became members of the Brubeck "tribe"....many wonderful memories and many incredible concerts. Oh and, last but not least my best wishes to Russell Gloyd who was always there for us all, and to all of Dave's great musicians.
PS... One of the memorable things Dave said to me that I always treasured was that some of his favorite musical experiences were playing with his sons. I was fortunate to be able to share that sentiment with his sons many years ago. It meant a lot to them, as they were not aware at that time of how happy it made Dave to make music with them. I might as well add to this story one other brief one which I included in my other tributes. When Dave and Iola attended University of Pacific, Dave told me that when he saw her across campus he said, "I am going to marry that woman."
.And the rest is history! God bless you all! Love again and again and again....Zan P.S. If I could begin again, I would rewrite this entire passage brilliantly. But I do not know how to do this here because I cannot see the entire piece as I am writing. I've only just begun this form of communication recently because my tendency has always been to pick up my guitar, write a song, or play the piano rather than get on line, thus, my tribute is not at all organized but straight from the heart. I am also sitting in a car 2 miles from home in freezing weather.
Now all of this time has passed and it is January 7th and the unfinished original tribute I was trying to post on Dec. 5th or 6th just now appeared out of nowhere. I did not know how to access it and thought I had lost it. Let me post it now before I lose it again...Special love to you, Iola.

Dave Brubeck was and "always" will be JAZZ ROYALITY! Now, he's making Heavenly music. Returning from his Moscow tour, Brubeck gave an "exclusive" interview to my Son, although it was announced no interviews would be allowed. Brubeck granted the interview because he stated my Son reminded him of his own Sons, whom he loved very much. It aired on an Ocala, Florida radio program. We loved attending the unique concerts. Thanks for the music, Dave...and all the recordings you've left to your fans to enjoy and forever celebrate and remember your life. Dave's in God's Arms, he's there to stay. He lived life fully, in every way. It was an honor to meet and talk with Dave Brubeck on Disney's Orlando backlot. My family and I will continue to enjoy his musical talents. Our deepest heartfelt sympathy to the family of Dave Brubeck and all his fans who share in the sorrow of his passing. He lived a long and beautiful life and shared his one-of-a-kind gifted talents,which we'll forever treasure. We'll truly miss you.
