“Great Music! Wonderful Man!
“Rest Dave, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.
Thank you for your service to this nation.
“I'll slways love your music, your honesty. I have in mind you rwfused to play somewhere because "someone" did not approve a negro muscitian of your group.
“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...
“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!
