very shocked and saddened when I heard of the passing of a true giant. listening to his monster hit "Take Five" tears came to my eyes not only by Dave's playing but also the smooth sax of Paul Desmond. thank god that his sons are taking over his legacy of playing his great music. I am glad that we will always have his wonderful music to remember him by. may the god of love pour out his blessings of comfort on his family at this very sad time. Rest in Peace Dave, a REAL AMBASSADOR of this great music

A true inspiration - and long lasting inluence on many - around the world. His sons will carry on...the traditions and create new pathways.
Thank you Master Brubeck. AlaTurk

I saw him play a few years ago in Newport during the Jazz Fastival w/his Son and Grandson. What a true gentleman he was.

I am 18 years old and saw the Take Five Album Cover at an Apple Keynote event where Steve Jobs was speaking (It was on an Ipod or Iphone Steve Jobs was holding and he actually played it in front of the audience). I looked into the album cover and found Brubeck's music. I can not stop listening to Take Five and Bossa Nova. R.I.P. Dave Brubeck and may your music live on forever!

Take Five Forever! Rest In Peace, Mr. Brubeck. see You On The Other Side.

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.
December 14, 2012
Our sincerest condolences to Dave's extended family. He will surely be missed by the world. The angels will have a whole new style of music to choose from. Rest in Peace, Dave.

I learned music appreciation from Dave. Mills College, Oakland, CA. 1950's His music continues to this day. Prayers & many thanks.
December 12, 2012
I can remember listening to his music as a young girl and loving it. I can only pray that your family can find peace in knowing what a wonderful legacy he has left to the world, not only the jazz world,but the world of music.
December 12, 2012
My heartfelt condolences goes out to Iola and the children. I have been a loving fan of Dave's since I first saw him here in Indiana, at an Evansville Jazz Festival, where he announced they'd just finished recording a song for an album that would be out in a couple months....written in 5/4 time and hoped we liked it. I knew then that would put them at the top of the charts. My last attended concert was at Goshen College here in Indiana in October, 2006, where I had 2nd row center seats. It was magical, I tell you. I can't tell you how much I've treasured his music nor the way he has lifted my soul over the years. Thank God for Dave. He seemed to be a friend of mine.
December 11, 2012
A fan since hearing 'Jazz goes to College'in 1958! Fortunate to see and talk with him at the Blue Note, I believe it was in 1994. A man from Russia that I met there took our picture. What a gift you were - and with all you left the world - A true man of peace.
December 11, 2012
My condolences to the Brubeck family. I grew up listening to Dave's music in our household and continued to do so as I got older. We have lost another musical legend.
Rest in Peace ...

Dave Brubeck was one of my few musical heros - along with Al Hirt, Pete Fountain, and Herbie Mann. I often wished back in the 60s that they would put on a concert together. May you rest in peace!

Catherine:
Although I have not been in recent contact, when I learned of your dad's passing, I could not help but remember the concert at Quinnipiac College that Arne, (who I miss also) and I attended where I met you dad at the "after party". I was a little nervous at first but after Arne introduced me; your dad smiled, shook my hand and gave me a hug and signed a CD of him I had. His calm nature and reassuring words made our meeting something I always will remember. After that I told him I needed to "Take-Five". He laughingly agreed. Thoughts and prayers.

Forty-two years ago, my piano teacher introduced me to jazz through two artists; Dave Brubeck was one of them, and I have enjoyed his work ever since. What a blessing Mr. Brubeck's musical legacy is to the world.
December 10, 2012
Mr. Brubeck your music will live for generations to come. I Have admired your music for over 20 years, especially Take Five. May you rest in peace. You have done your part very well. I wish I could have met you. I pray your family find peace knowing you are at peace. GOD BLESS.

I have many fond memories of the Dave Brubeck Quartet performing at Western Reserve University and a tent performance venue in East Cleveland (the name escapes me). As a young jazz sax player, the experience of listening to Paul Desmond's "flights of fancy" in concert and also on record inspired me to study music and pursue a career in jazz education. I was so enamored by his sound and jazz lines that I memorized note-for-note all his solos on his "Desmond and Friends" Album.
What I recall totally unique about Brubeck was how he shared the spotlight with the rest of the Quartet, especially Paul. I still can envision how Dave would take a chorus or two and then Paul would saunter up to the microphone and spin out a dozen or more, each building, captivating and enthralling - the audience fixated on each developing phrase. And what was Brubeck doing during those Desmond "flights"? Many a time Dave would stop "comping" and just listen to Paul, smiling like a Cheshire cat, enjoying the moment with the rest of us. Sadly, the recordings of the 50's and 60's never allowed Dave and Paul to stretch out like they did in those concert settings.
And one more observation kind reader: Dave and Paul had this unique ability to employ musical "quotation" in their improvisation. Anybody can interpose a familiar phrase or corny tune in a solo, but to select that just right melodic snippet and weave it logically into a solo is quite a heady trick. Many times the two soloists would engage in a sort of melodic "conversation" - trading lines like two women at a Hadassah party. The audiences loved it and always responded enthusiastically. The result of all of this was oftentimes absolutely hilarious - a complete jazz experience. Where is there any humor in jazz today?
For old hipsters like myself on the bright side of senility, Dave and his faithful music companion Paul Desmond were my heroes, my musical friends, my teachers and source of inspiration, and I miss them. I hope today's hipsters discover their essence and learn from them. Good night Dave, enjoy that session with Paul - I hear he found a good reed.

I remember well the jazz concert that Dave and his Quartet, Joe, Gene, and Paul, held in my college in 1962. It was especially rewarding since me and a few of my classmates were asked to sell Dave's programs for the event. As a result we had the honor of going into the locker room area to meet Dave and the Quartet during intermission and at the show ending. I enjoyed it thoroughly and will always remember it. I still have a program, in pristine condition, autographed by all four individuals. We will miss you Dave.

I am so saddened by the passing of the great Dave Brubeck- his music was always the swinginist & I always enjoyed it. On a trip to So. Africa in 2001, we went to a little township for a music tour & there, at a Bed & Breakfast, we enjoyed African jazz with the finale being "Take Five". Indeed, his music was loved world-wide, his influence was immense. He made such a positive impact in the world of music & he will be deeply missed. Wishing he & his family peace.

I was drawn to the music of Dave Brubeck as an 11 year living in Cleveland, Ohio in the early 60's. The Dave Brubeck Quartet played in various Cleveland venues through the 60's and my friend and I saw them often. We would wander backstage and were able to spend time with Mr. Brubeck, Gene Wright, Paul Desmond and Joe Morello on numerous occasions over the years. They were all incredibly kind, decent, friendly gents who always seemed to have time my stupid questions. Dave Brubeck(and his group) were superstars with the kindest hearts you could ever hope to encounter. Apart from their music, they were wonderful people. Rest in peace,Dave, people like you make our planet a better place.

So sorry for your loss.
I used to love listening to his music in the 60's and I still enjoy it. Such a talented man. He will be missed.
May you be blessed with the good memories you shared with him.
December 07, 2012
Until "Take Five" became a smash hit I had a very narrow viewpoint of Jazz. I bought the album, "Time Out", (which I still have), and my musical appreciation now has a much broader scope. Thanks, Dave, you leave a great void in the music world.
December 07, 2012
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
December 07, 2012

My dad named two of his boats after Take Five. Take Five and Take Five II. What a wonderful, talented man. Grew up listening to his music. Such an aspiration.
December 07, 2012
Thank you, Dave. It was all a pleasure!
December 07, 2012
God bless your Soul,Dave.
I remember when the quartet showed up on a Sunday afternoon in a neighborhood bar in Huber Heights, Ohio as a surprise for me by the owner of the club. What a joy to talk to Joe Morello when I was 17 and listen to
Dave. I was a young drummer musician then in a rock and roll band.
I'll always treasure that birthday surprise listening to this kind gentle giant streaming live and in person.
December 07, 2012
God bless him, one of the most important musician in the world. Great legacy and life.
Thank you, Mr. Brubeck for all the happiness.

I just now wrote a very long tribute/Iola and the Dave Brubeck family with thoughts and memories from the heart and it totally disappeared. I have no reception at home so I am sitting in a car in freezing weather. I posted 2 tributes on FB which people are reading and responding to, left 2 messages for Iola, FB messages for Chris and Danny and, since I am only recently on this learning curve, I have trouble making all of this work and having the writing live up to my high standards, I will try again tomorrow...My deepest love to all of you for now. My heart is filled with sorrow, although I realize the gift of his longevity and legacy of which we are all the beneficiaries. Love from the heart...to Danny, Chris, Iola, Darius, Cathy, Matthew, Russell and to be continued.....Zan

To the family: So sorry for your loss; I only hope there's some solace in the fact that it is shared by so many, though I know it's not the same. Having grown up with Matthew, and played in your home, you will all be in my heart and in my prayers.
December 07, 2012
I met the man after a performance of "The Gates Of Justice", performed on the campus of Oakland University, Rochester, MI, 1968.
The show took place in the university gym, as the school had no proper place, at the time, to present music concerts.
Dave could even swing in a gym, and I don't mean on the parallel bars.
My Mom was in the university chorus at the time, so, getting a ticket was easy.
I have been a fan since the age of 11, when my 6th grade teacher introduced me to the "Time Out" album.
I was able to meet Dave, Jack Six, & Alan Dawson, after the show.
I was so exited , you'd have thought I was meeting the Beatles or Hendrix.
The entire Jazz world is light by one pianist.
May God's love sustain the family at this time of grieving.

In the mid- to late-'60s I got to enjoy Mr. Brubeck in concert, in Louisville, KY. Thank you for your unique music, sir.
December 07, 2012
From the late 50s to today I listen to his fantastic and so rhythmic beautiful jazz. He has had over 300 albums created which I hope will live on forever. His sidemen were impeccable artists of the same caliber as Dave. I will miss going to his concerts and hearing him talk of his many experiences abroad. Love you dearly Dave. I so honored him with a poster of 294 of his albums.

He brought progressive jazz to my "dining room table" for life. Thanks for the imprint Dave. You are missed.

Oh, he will be missed! I listen to his music all the time while I am working on my paintings. It calms my soul and focuses my mind :)
December 06, 2012
My father listened to his music when I was born and I am sure I did too. He was my first admired jazz musician. His music will remain immortal.

Dr. Charles Webb conducted "A Light in the Wilderness" in 1964 in the Bloomington, Indiana, Methodist Church.

I sang with the altos, age 19. I'll never forget it.

May you rest in peace, Sir Dave. I grew up as a child listening to your music. My dad introduced me to your music when I was 10. He had great taste in music "Dave Brubeck". My 10 year old granddaughter brought me a CD with my favorite on it. Yep, "Take Five". I am passing your music on to my granddaughter. Thank you. You will live on in our hearts forever and I will continue to play your music. I thank God for you and all that JAZZ! God bless your family. You were truly a shining star!!! (smile)

December 06, 2012
The passing of a great icon in music is tragic. However, we have his music recorded for prosperity.
I was born in late 1958; I do not know when I first heard "Take Five". I was in my 20's when I found the 45. An unscratched copy of "Time Out" took longer to find.
Brubeck was one of the last living that I have on 78's. Too bad "Take Five" is not on a 78.
I will always enjoy "Take Five". I like versions performed by Al Jarreau, Quincy Jones, Accoustic Alchemy, to name a few.
December 06, 2012
loved,loved loved your music. One of my bucket lists was to see you play Take Five, Saw you at the Monterey jazz festival but heard take five in palm beach. My parents taught me how to appreciate good music and yours was constantly playing. Thank you for many happy memories with your music. Your music will play on and so will your legend.
December 06, 2012
May God bless him and his family.
December 06, 2012
We have lost one the most decent & honorable celebrities one can encounter....While I never actually never met Dave, I have lived within & around towns where he lived & met a few people that DID know him. Each one had been impressed with his "humility" & "down to earth" character. They adored him as a person. What a great legacy! RIP. -EH Milford,CT.
December 06, 2012
Our condolences to Mr. Brubeck's family. May our Heavenly Father, the God of comfort and tender mercies be with you all. WIth deep sympathy,

My prayers go out to the Brubeck family. I appreciate all the wonderful memories I had have listening to all your great masterpieces. You were truly inspirational in my life. You were unique, a genius, and the best Jazz musician of all time. A true visionary and legend. You will be missed but never forgotten , and your music will always be Timeless!

Sincerely,
December 06, 2012
I was fortunate to see Dave perform twice - once about 30 years ago when he was touring with his sons, and about 3 years ago when he performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. What a marvelous talent and kind gentleman! At that first concert he graciously autographed all the albums I had brought to the event. We talked about the album covers - particularly the one from "Jazz Red Hot and Cool" which featured a lady in a bright red dress. He remembered that they brought the lady to the piano and began draping her in red fabric for the picture. What memories his music brings back every time I listen to his magic musical creations. The angels in heaven must truly be rejoicing now that he is with them. God be with his family and all who loved him.
December 06, 2012
Ten years ago, I had the good fortune to get to go back stage after one of the Quartet's concerts because my date knew his bass player. Dave posed for a photo with me. I told him: "Dave, I have been trying to play your music on the piano for 40 years". His response to me: "So have I".
I cherish his existence and contributions to the world.

December 06, 2012
So sorry to hear of the passing of a great Jazz Legend. I spent many wonderful evenings in Piedmont, Ca. sitting by the piano in a private home while Mr Brubeck entertained us with his top hits! Wonderful memories I will never forget.

December 06, 2012
Take 5 will always be a hit. Thank you for your music. Had a chance to listen to your music 2 summers ago here in Chicago.
December 06, 2012
Truely one of the greats. Take five opened my eyes to the wonderful world of jazz as a youngster,,thanks for that one Dave! I'm in your debt forever.
December 06, 2012
What a composer, pianist, and ambassador for JAZZ! He gave us -- the world -- so much and always. Almost everything that I have ever heard from Brubeck and Company has been infectious. Good thing a vaccine will never be found.
December 06, 2012
Dear Dave, as a little child, born in 1959, I was already impressed by Take Five! Thank you for all your nice music,

I feel so lucky to have seen him in concert here in Stockton, CA back in 2002, it was a magical experience.

"TAKE FIVE" If anyone deserves it it is really you,one of a kind and never to be another! You and your band entertained the world. CJ Wozny
December 06, 2012
Oh, how we loved Take 5. I have gone to your concerts, bought your sheet music, records and CD's, over the years.
December 06, 2012
As a rookie producer, I was shocked when Mr. Brubeck granted me an interview. While that took place in his beautiful home over 30 years ago, I have never forgotten his genuine warmth and passion for music. A truly lovely man.
December 06, 2012
What a great composer and pianist! Can you imagine the angelic sounds that are penetrating the heavens?
December 06, 2012
So very sorry to hear of Mr. Brubeck's death. I loved his music. I play his albums over and over again. Rest in Peace Mr. Brubeck.

You were the Greatest, I love your Blue Rondo ala Turk. Although I never saw you live, I saw your sons twice at Esther Short park in Vancouver, Wa, last year and this year. May you rest in peace and every time I hear Take 5, I'll remember you and your family.
December 06, 2012
SYMPATHY TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE BRUBECK FAMILY HIS GREAT ATTRIBUTES AS A MUSICIAN AND A HUMAN BEING WILL LIVE WITH US ALWAYS. MAY GOD GRANT HIM ETERNAL REST AND HIS PERPETUAL LIGHT ALWAYS SHINE ON HIM.

Stores. Wow did I demonstrate
Take Five. Oh the sax & driums
December 06, 2012
Condolences to his family and friends. A great mentor and musician extraordinaire on his way to play again with those he joined at the piano and percusion. I was at his duo with George Shearing in London at the RFH many years ago and remember it fondly. Happy Journey Dave.
December 06, 2012
As a music fan, I will never forget the story my father told me about being the only kid on his block who loved "Take Five." He has been a fan ever since and passed that love onto me. I wouldn't be a fan of jazz music if it wasn't for the amazing work of Mr. Brubeck. This man and his talent will be dearly missed.
December 06, 2012
He wrote fantastic tunes that are already classics and played wonderfully. I had the privilege to see him perform live, the first time in Boston in 1974 and the last time in Syracuse in 2007. He was still top notch then.
December 06, 2012
I will always be greatful for Take Five; RIP Mr. Brubeck...
December 06, 2012
He delighted and inspired millions. I must have worn out ten Brubeck records. Truly a national treasure.
December 06, 2012
My only solace is that you left us such great music to share with future generations. Peace.
December 06, 2012
My husband has been a big fan of Mr. Brubeck's since high school. We are happy to have been Blessed to meet Mr. Brubeck and his family and to have heard him play. We envy his new audience. God Bless his family in their time of sorrow.
December 06, 2012
In high school in the '60s several of us tried to play your music (I bought the piano books and the guys were good enough to play their parts by ear). Good times. I still like your music.
December 06, 2012
Take Five,Dave! you will be surely miss.
You did a benefit for my disabled late uncle back in the late 50's.
will never forget.
aloha,
December 06, 2012
Fortunate to hear Mr. Brubeck in the '50s at a nice spot on Wacker Dr. in Chicago. Such a special treat. His music will live on as demonstrated by his many fans. A musician's musician and one of a kind. Condolences to the family.

Dear Brubeck Family and Friends;
Your beloved Dave leaves me with sounds, rhythms, beats, unique to him. Daves music saved me through my adolescence and teen years I was very cool. "Take Five" held me together.
His sounds will be remembered
December 06, 2012
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
December 06, 2012
May you find comfort in the Hearer of prayer at this time. Psalm 65:2
December 06, 2012
In the late '50s, I was dating someone who was a huge Brubeck fan and we would visit the jazz clubs in NYC. We attended a great gig of Dave's (I think at Birdland)which cemented my love of jazz. The best part was we met Dave and the quartet after in their dressing room. Dave was so sweet and my friend and he really got into the music. A great musician and great human being has been called home. How blessed we are to have heard him, known him, loved him and to have his music with us forever. May his family find great comfort in having had this loving husband,father, grandfather for so many years. May many memories warm your hearts. Thank you, Dave, for your great gift. Alta
December 06, 2012
May the eternal light shine upon him...
December 06, 2012
Thank you Dave for your progressive musical talents, especially ' progressive jazz yours and Stan Kenton.
God be with you Dave.
December 06, 2012
Loved his music. My condolences to the
family. May you be comforted by PSALMS 65:2.
December 06, 2012
'til we meet again Dave. Thanks for sharing your great talent, and thank God for sharing you with us.
December 06, 2012
December 06, 2012
In a sense I feel that I have lost a lifelong friend whose music enriched my life. The memory of him and his music do live on and I am ever the more grateful.
December 06, 2012
I had the pleasure of seeing Mr Brubeck play, quite by accident one night in Coconut grove at the Village Inn. He was there with Lionel Hampton and Stan Getz. They locked the doors at "closing time" and we didn't leave til dawn. It was one of the best nights of my life and I will never forget it. I am so sorry for the loss of such a great talent and nice Human Being. Condolences to all who knew Mr. Brubeck personally. A great light has left THIS world and gone on to the next, I am sure.
December 06, 2012
My local tv station used Take Five as the theme for its late late news program for many years. That was pretty hip...dig? More recently, the Fresh Air interview entertained me. The music will last forever.
December 06, 2012
Thank you for your forever gift of music ~ Prayers to you and your loved ones ~ Rest in peace.
December 06, 2012
One of the greats of jazz
December 06, 2012
I saw Dave at the Litchfield Jazz Fest about five years ago. His appearance was the headliner of the Saturday evening performances. Mr. Brubeck was brought to the stage for his much anticipated performance via a golf cart, and was helped to the stage by his aide. However when he sat down at the keyboard it was like he was transformed to a different dimension where age his physicality had no meaning. What followed was a virtuoso performance. He was an amazing and generous man.
December 06, 2012
We've lost an icon.
December 06, 2012
To the family, I am sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort be with you all at this difficult time. 2Vorinthians 1:3-4
December 06, 2012
I'm sure you're playing for the Lord now, Dave. I always loved your music - saw you for the first time in 1958. You brought a lot of pleasure to this world.
December 06, 2012
As a teen-ager, I grew up with Dave's wonderful jazz. RIP, Mr Brubeck.
December 06, 2012
One of the gifted who brought jazz into America in a new way and was a part of my life through my passion for jazz music.
December 06, 2012
Dave Brubeck's music on late night weekend radio in Austin Texas awakened the musical sensitivity of a handful of teenaged boys in the '50's. I was one of them. Soon after as an Armed Forces Radio DJ on the island of Trinidad his music was on every program - all his music, everything in the library. Then, wonder of wonders, the State Department sent the quartet to us as part of a world tour. They came to the base, played for us and he sat with Chris and Mrs. Brubeck for an interview at the Queens Park Hotel in Port-of-Spain. I still have the old reel to reel tape. We were so fortunate to see him at a recent Monterey Jazz Festival playing with the vigor and joy of a young man. For him to have been lauded during his lifetime is deservwed. His true worth as an artist is so great its lkely yet to be understood.
December 06, 2012
I have been Blessed to be able to enjoy the music of Dave Brubeck many times over the years. Be it at The Newport Jazz Festival or at home in New Haven, CT. And I know that there will never be another time that I will hold so close. To watch and listen to Mr Brubeck sit at the paino and with the simlpe touch of the keys make each and every person's day come alive. God gave us all a slice of heaven each time we were graced with his music.
For the family of Mr Brubeck thank you from my heart & soul for sharing such a wonderful caring and talented man. For the world shall never be the same.
December 06, 2012
We loved your music...our Creator gave you a beautiful gift (Psalm 33:2). Your gift was used to bring us joy. May you rest peacefully. My sympathy to the family.
December 06, 2012

My heartfelt condolence goes out yo your family. The loss of a dear loved one may be hard to bear. May the God of all comfort grant you peace during this time.
December 06, 2012
Mr. Brubeck, it's time for you to take five,you deserve it.
Shalom
December 06, 2012
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
December 06, 2012
December 06, 2012
In the mid 50's, a date took me to a Brubeck concert at a Pittsburgh, PA. hotel. Can't remember my dates' name but that thrilling night made me a life long fan of this musical treasure and his great talent. My sincere sympathy to his family. Rest in peace Mr. Brubeck, and, thank you.
December 06, 2012
A wonderful talent has left us, but his music will live forever.

God bless the family in this time of sorrow. Rest in peace, Dave.
December 06, 2012
Offering my deepest condolences during this difficult time, I'm so very sorry for your loss, death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing God has promised He will do away with sickness, pain and death for His word is truth.
December 06, 2012
Heaven just got a little more hip. RIP, Mr. Brubeck. You were one swingin' cat.
December 06, 2012
While student teaching in Wilton, CT. in 1971 I had the pleasure of teaching Matthew Brubeck, the youngest of the Brubeck children. Mr. Brubeck's musical genius was equalled only by his devotion as a parent. The world has lost one of its best composers/performers but the Brubecks have lost a most loving and caring father.
December 06, 2012
May the GOD who comforts all comfort you in your time of pain and grief. (2corinth. 1:3) May your fond memories of him bring you comfort and peace.
December 06, 2012
I'm very sad... I have lost my musical father...
December 06, 2012
I am so sorry for your loss. May your special holiday memories help ease your grief this Christmas.
December 06, 2012
Following an inspiring concert at Villa Montalvo years ago, I participated in a small jazz lecture/workshop. I was so impressed by his humility and kindness to us students. He told us he could not read music & Mills College let him graduate if he would promise not to teach music. We are grateful that he did teach the world by example in his music and his humanity.

Thank
December 06, 2012
Thinking and praying for the family at this time. May the God who gives peace be with all of you.
December 06, 2012
It's time to Take Five Dave. Thanks for all the wonderful memories. Maybe someday I will get to hear you and Louie play together.
December 06, 2012
Growing up a music lover, my father turned me on to Dave's music. From a young age he's always been one of my musical heroes. I had the great gift of getting to know his son Dan's family here where I live in Nelson, BC. I was flabbergasted when I learned that my son was going to school with Dave Brubeck's grandson! This is one heck of a loving family and such a talented one, too! My deepest heartfelt sympathies go out to ALL of his surviving family members. I know how much you all cared about and admired him. May you have strength and the will to carry on his brilliant legacy for many more years to come.
December 06, 2012
At a concert in Boulder in the 1980s, after intermission Dave asked the audience, "How many of you are acquainted with my daughter, Cathy?" Many hands went up. "Well, Cathy had a baby," he said. The audience applauded. Dave was obviously a loving father and husband, and, as we know, a humanitarian who advanced the causes and heart-conditions of "goodness" and joy through his music as well as the way he lived his life and raised his children. May God Bless. Condolences to his beautiful family.
December 06, 2012
To the the family of Dave Brubeck - May God give you peace and comfort through his word and the Lord Jesus Christ during this time of sorrow, I know that he will be missed by many.
December 06, 2012
Thank you, Mr. Brubeck.
December 06, 2012
I was 13 when my best friend and I sat and listened in utter amazement to Dave Brubeck quartet. Joe Morello, Paul Desmond, and Ray Brown. The only thing greater than hearing the group live was passing on the music experience t my oldest and dearest son David. Wekll both miss you and your music.
December 06, 2012
It was 1954, I was 17, and bought my first Dave Brubeck 45 record. I played Jeepers Creepers and Keepin' Out Of Mischief Now until my father was ready to disown me. Needless to say, I have been listening to all of my favorites today while mourning the loss of this great man and musician. Thank you, Dave, for the gift you have given to the world. May you rest in peace and enhance the heavens with your unforgettable music.
December 06, 2012
I was 10 years old when I first was exposed to this magical music by my father . I am 44 today, and my 13 year old plays Take Five on guitar . Il make sure his children don't miss out on this amazing unreplacible music .
December 06, 2012
You are the best jazz man you blend a Bach mozart style that your way your groves chops breaks blends note after note points to you sir a divine god gifted mystro your work will be studied for years to come and their is a great hush as the universe is ready to receive you and all ears are upon you we know we hear and pause to pray for all you have touched so we take five and do high fives as well amen ????

Dave Brubeck, one of the Greats! My prayers to his family and loved ones. His music will live on forever. Rest in peace Mr. Brubeck.
December 05, 2012
The first few notes of "Take Five "have always sent a chill down my spine, Mr Brubeck was not just a music man but a legend. May he play his beautiful music in heaven.
December 05, 2012
I met Dave back in the early 80's when he played with Chris And Dan. He was a true gentleman and Jazz Has lost one of it's Godfathers. He will be truly missed.
December 05, 2012
I first saw you in the 1960's with your very first concert at Western Illinois University with my brother Ken. You and your quartet were a unique sound then and now I imagine a unique sound for all in Heaven to enjoy. God Bless you Dave!
December 05, 2012
We had the great fortune to hear Dave Brubeck play a celebration mass at the Moscow Conservatory Great Hall in 1997. What an inspiration and a joy to hear both his classics and his new composition.
December 05, 2012
Had the true privilege of Executive Producing a television program starring Dave Brubeck with his friend Jerry Mulligan nearly two decades ago. While he was a consummate professional and truly unique super-talent, I recall the kindness and generosity of this fine gentleman. God Bless his family in their sorrow.
December 05, 2012
Our condolences to Iola and the Brubeck Family. Our family and many world wide jazz fans will miss the musical mastery of Dave. As our daughter Kim said in an LG phone message to us, "Godspeed" Dave.
December 05, 2012
First time I saw Dave was at the Klein Memorial in Bridgeport, CT in the late 50's. Seen Dave at Cape Cod, On the Green in New Haven, CT (free concert) in Westport, CT twice. The first time with Stan Getz & Paul Desmond. Stan & Paul played All the Things You Are. It blew me away and the second time with his sons. The last time I saw Dave was at Tanglewood Jazz Festival. Our seats were on the stage. He was just wonderful and so exciting to watch. I had a friend at work many years ago and she lived next door to Dave. I wanted her to invite me over when Dave was practicing so maybe I could hear him from an open window. That never happened, but I would imagine it. God Bless you and your family. Take Five is a masterpiece.
December 05, 2012
Dave Brubeck, Miles Davis, and Quincy Jones are the reasons I came to love jazz. I was very fortunate to see the ultra talented Mr. Brubeck and his sons perform here in Houston in the late seventies at Jones Hall. There wasn't a full house that night, but it was better that way, as I knew the people who attended were his loyal fans. I felt like the DB Quartet was playing just for me, and I will never forget how wonderful and memorable that concert was. Dave Brubeck's music brought much joy to my life, and the lives of many others.

God bless him.
December 05, 2012
Take Five was my favorite. My heart goes to the family of Dave. You will be missed.
December 05, 2012
The sound! I love it still. I am sorry for your loss. Please know that longevity is a blessing from God. (Genesis 15:15) . . .:" you will be buried at a good old age." May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
December 05, 2012
I remember the joy of getting to perform (in Hartford Chorale with Hartford Symphony) his "Joy in the Morning" which he so graciously dedicated to UCONN Health Center. A moving moment when he came up onstage. He will be greatly missed.
December 05, 2012
Our Family sends out condolences
Thank you for the Great Music
Into The JAZZ Of The Art of Music!
December 05, 2012
In 1961 when I was 14-years old my father took me to hear the Dave Brubeck Quartet at Symphony Hall in Chicago. It was the most electrifying experience of my life and shaped my musical pursuits from thereon out. I was inspired not only by Dave's music but by the man himself. After absorbing as much of his music as I could I began to learn about the intellect and character behind the man. He became a second father figure to me and his passing is deeply felt by me.
I had the opportunity to meet him and his lovely wife, Iola, 3 years ago when he played at our local performance hall (Shalin Liu Performance Center) in Rockport, MA. He received a well deserved standing ovation just stepping onto the stage. It was a brilliant and memorable night for me. So many hours I spent listening to every measure of every record he produced. He shaped my life for the better and I had the good fortune of being able to tell him that before he left us. God rest your gentle soul, Mr. Brubeck, and thank you for lighting this world with your music.
December 05, 2012
So sorry to hear of Mr. Brubecks death. Have been a fan since 1954 when I heard the group in San Francisco at a club while in the air force and several times since then. Mr. Brubeck performed THE FESTIVAL OF THE INN, A CHRISTMAS CHORAL PAGENT here in Durango, Colorado twice. The concert was awsome, with a huge choral group, dancers, etc. So many of the greats of JAZZ to welcome Mr. Brubeck. What a great talent.
December 05, 2012

Dave Brubeck the true musician. God has taken Dave away from us but his recordings will be with us forever. This man contributed so much to Music. I was a young teenager and everyone was flipping on the Rock idols I first heard Dave in l956 and right then and there I heard and saw the Difference from listening to a Musical Jazz Genius. Thank you Dave Brubeck for making me attracted to JAZZ and your style which was way way above all the current nonsense that the disc jockeys were promoting. Right now Dave our BELOVED Dave Brubeck is in heaven with all the heavy weight Jazz pianists. i can now see and envision Dave with ART TATUM OSCAR PETERSON GEORGE SHEARING man can you imagine all of Daves buddies right up there with him? Love you and admire you DAVE for everything you have done for Jazz. Truly a Musical GENIUS that will forever and ever be remembered.
December 05, 2012

A long time ago. Prom time at Basin Street East New York. Late 50s or very early 60s. On the bill with The Brothers Four and Nina Simone.
Fast forward to late 1965. Basin Street West. I was sitting at the bar in the back. Close to the end of the night. Club fairly empty, Back from a deployment to Hawaii. He invited me to come up front and enjoyed the rest of the evening.
Next day I saw him at the airport. Simply nodded in passing. No words needed be exchanged. A sequence of events I will remember for ever.
Mr. Brubeck, thank you for the music, thank you for the memories.
December 05, 2012
To: Mr. Dave Brubeck Family,
Memory can tell us only what we were,
In company with those we loved;
It cannot help us find out what each of us,
Alone, must now become.
Yet, no person is really alone;
Those who live no more still echo
Within our thoughts and words,
and what they did has become
Woven into what we are.
God Bless, and Bless America.

was Dave's mailman in the early 80's, mesmorized standing outside his door listening to him play early in the morning, a true gentle man and legendary musician...

What a great man. He will be missed. Can't stop playing his music in the house all day long. God will get you through these difficult days. Just play his music.

We first heard Dave at Paul Masson Mountain Winery in Saratoga,CA in 1981 and were instantly hooked on his jazz. We caught him in SF Bay Area venues whenever possible. There will never be another like him. RIP Dave, he's playing with the other jazz greats now for Our Father. J & MA
December 05, 2012
In May, 1971, I had the distinct privilege of conducting the world première of Dave Brubeck's Cantata, "Truth", a work for chorus, symphony orchestra, soprano solo, and Dave's son Chris's rock group, New Heavenly Blue. This work was commissioned for the dedication of the Midland Center for the Arts in Midland, Michigan. From that moment forward I have treasured not only this experience but a continued friendship with both Dave and his wife Iola. His inventive musicianship was unparalleled as was his humanity. This world is a far better place because of this fine man.
December 05, 2012
Best concert of my life. Front row. 10 feet away from Dave. Rest in peace.
December 05, 2012
Dear Brubeck Family,

Dave Brubeck inspired me at age 14. Have been a fan ever since. Thanks for the memories. Wch Pgn.
December 05, 2012
I met you and Paul after a concert in 1962 in Framingham, MA. You were introducing Castilian Drums, and the drummer (no need to name him) was delayed on a flight from Chicago. You performed as a trio, which was great, and then Joe showed up after intermission and treated us to that magnificent drum solo, later "enshrined" on the Carnegie Hall album(s)-- which I think of as THE definitive Brubeck recording. My friend and I later bumped into you at a Howard Johnson's, where we'd gone to have a sundae. I blubbered how much I loved your music and how much it meant to my understanding of jazz and music in general. I will miss you... and treasure your music... always.
December 05, 2012
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the music of my life. Now you can join the concert in heaven. Blessings to family.
December 05, 2012
Thank you for the music Mr. Brubeck!

I feel honored to have met Dave Brubeck, Russell Gloyd, & others with Brubeck.
I sang with his band downtown Charlotte at Spirit Square years ago; in fact, I believe it was on his 60th
or 65th Birthday backstage after the
concert. My church choirmaster at the
time, Al McLanhan, got us invited so that we could meet Dave in person.

I love his music, & so does my husband, William.

I was unmarried when I met him. I was
Alice Goldsmith, & I wore a yellow print long skirt in the performance.

Rest in peace, & play with the angels.

I am saddened for all his family who will miss him.

Robin and I had the priviledge of seeing Mr. Brubeck a few years ago at Berklee. He was 88. We felt so fortunate to be in the same room as a living legend. He shuffled out on stage so feebly and needed help to sit at his piano. I was sad and nervous for him, not knowing what I'd hear. Then he started to play. he brought tears to our eyes. It was as if once he touched the keys, he was 40 again and he BLEW the place away. A truly remarkable and moving experience. Such an important person in our history. Take Five sir.
December 05, 2012
R.I.P., dear sir and GOD be with you. You'll be missed. I found your music otherwordly, and it inspired me to pursue my own career in music...
December 05, 2012
Your music brought a lot of joy to my life. And thanks for helping to make the world a more civilized place, on so many levels.
December 05, 2012
I heard 'Take Five' before age ten on the family HiFi. My Dad was a jazz pianist also; the vinyl was his (now mine). A magical and defining moment . The Brubeck notes are woven into the fabric of my life. The notes of 'You'll Never Know' from Indian Summer play as I tap this note. Though you have left us, your music is forever. Thanks Dave.
December 05, 2012
My dad introduced me to Dave Brubeck with Blue Rondo ala Turk and Take 5. I was hooked. My dad saw him play in the 50's and I saw him play 40 years later and he still had it. Amazing legacy.
December 05, 2012
I was very sorry to read of his death, because it was his music the I grew up with as a teenager in Philadelphia. God bless him.
December 05, 2012
My sympathy to his family and friends. He was simply put, one of the best at what he did.

God rest his soul.

God bless.

One of the most original of all great American musicians (along with Paul Desmond), and a wonderfully magnanimous human being. My condolences to his remarkable wife Iola, and their gifted children.
December 05, 2012
I grew up listening to Dave Brubeck. I saw him perform live once and in his old age he shuffled across the stage. But when he sat down and started playing, age was no factor (except that his years of expertise mesmerized me). He was an amazing musician and I will always remember him as someone who helped influence my vocal jazz career!
December 05, 2012
Thank you so much for all the music you shared with us. My children (4 and 6 years old)love Take Five and we will be listening to it tonight thinking of you.
December 05, 2012
I saw Mr. Brubeck several times over the years. The first at the DeCordova Museum in the early 1990s and the last just a couple of years ago in Worcester at Mechanics Hall. I cannot express how sad this day is. A very big void has been created by his passing. Thankfully, we have the quartet, octet, orchestral, and solo piano recordings to remember him. So long Dave......I hope your faith has been rewarded.
December 05, 2012
Take five, Dave... You earned it!
December 05, 2012
A truely outstanding musician who will be greatly missed, not only for his music, but his innovative style!
December 05, 2012
After hearing Take Five in the early 60's I was hooked on jazz. What a thrill to see him at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga,CA. with his sons. Lola is from in Willows,CA just miles from where I grew up. He will be so sorely missed, but what a body of work he left for all of us to enjoy. RIP Dave!
December 05, 2012
Thank you, Dave. I wish I got to see you play in person, but your rhythms and style have affected me for all time. Thank you for bringing your marvelous music to the world.
December 05, 2012
A life full of music that he shared and was enjoyed by so many,is a life well lived. Thank you Mr. Brubeck, your talent graced us. Sincere condolences to the family and friends of Dave Brubeck. A genius.

40 years ago, Dave Brubeck played a concert at my high school with both Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan--an experience that I remember vividly to this day. I was not until 34 years later that I took up jazz seriously, but he remains the primary inspiration behind my love of this music. I saw him perform at the Hanover theater several years ago. It was astounding. Even he remarked at the end of the concert that he wished he'd recorded it. Another indelible experience that I will cherish. A scholar and a gentleman--you will be missed.
December 05, 2012
Been listening to your sounds for more than 50 years. First on hi-fi and of late on my iPhone. Absolutely, loved your style and sound!

December 05, 2012
In 1991, I came across some symphony orchestra stage layouts, different from what we'd seen at the Hartford Symphony. I sent them to the new music director, Michael Lankester. He acknowledged them with a cordial note. At the end of the subscription season, we went backstage to wish the maestro our best. I reminded him of what I'd sent. He, of course, recalled, knowing we were The Jumping Frog, a used & rare bookstore in Hartford. He asked, Do you do book searches? Sure, I said. He3 then asked us to locate a copy of P G Wodehouse's novel Joy in the Morning, which he had read as a youth in England. He added that he needed it as his gift to the composer of a piece of music of the same name, composed for the 25th Anniversary Celebratory Concert for the University of Connecticut Health Center, in June. I assured him we could likely get a copy. As an afterthought, I said, Where shall we pick up our tickets in exchange? After some asides to his assistant, he said we could of course pick up our tickets at will-call the evening of the concert. In due course, the book was delivered. Anticipating the off-chance I'd be able to corner Brubeck, I brought some memorabilia for him to autograph. In one, a copy of TIME Magazine from 1954, featuring Dave on the cover, was an article indicating his wife was named Whitlock. MY wife's name is also Whitlock, and they were both from Connecticut. They may be distantly related. On concert evening, we picked up our tickets and were delighted to have also enclosed, an invitation to the post-concert reception for Dave Brubeck. After a stirring performance of the world premiere of the Bruback piece, followed after intermission by Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, we went to the reception area. Almost immediately, I saw Mr Brubeck and approached. My opening line, after introductions, was You know, we have something in common. We're both married to Whitlocks. He was delighted to hear at and directed my wife to his wife, standing a few yards away. After cordial chatting, we saw Maestro Lankester rushing up, excited to tell Mr Brubeck that I was the one who'd located the Wodehouse. In all it was a memorable evening, made moreso by the Brubecks' friendliness. He was a genuine individual, unaffected by fame. We shall cherish his music and his memory. Play a set, cousin-in-law, for those you meet from now on.
December 05, 2012
As a high school kid I listened to DJ Symphony Sid on Boston's old WILD radio station. Sid was a Brubeck believer who turned us all on to "Take Five". Hats off to Dave Brubeck and his legendary quartet!

Listening to "Take Five" for the first time when I was a kid got me hooked onto jazz. I played tenor sax in the jazz ensemble all throughout high school and while I don't actively play now, I still get chills every time I hear your music. Rest in peace Mr. Brubeck. You are going to be greatly missed.
December 05, 2012
Your music will live on. Thank you.
December 05, 2012
From the very first time I heard "Take Five" when I was a young teenage girl, I became a huge jazz fan. Between Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond, my love of jazz never waned. What a gift Mr. Brubeck gave this world!
December 05, 2012
You have certainly earned the opportunity to finally "take five", Dave.
December 05, 2012
