Abstract: FOR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, and certainly for me, the name Dave Brubeck is virtually synonymous with jazz. He was a boyhood idol of mine from the moment I figured out, as a 5-year-old, how to play his album Time 0111 on my parents' stereo. I still have his kind response to a fan letter I wrote him when 1 was 16. We've kept in touch off and on ever since, and 1 have proofread several of his scores. When he asked me recently to record some of his piano composF tions,I was delighted.
