210px-Time_magazine_cover,_Dave_Brubeck,_November_1954Today we mourn the passing of a true jazz legend.  Jazz icon Dave Brubeck passed away from heart failure on the eve of his 92nd birthday.

Much should and will be said of Dave Brubeck over the next few days.  Rather than add to this, I will leave you with a selection of Dave Brubeck quotes.

He will be sorely missed.

Ben Hall
Kingston Jazz Society

Every individual should be expressing themselves, whether a politician or a minister or a policeman.

Yeah, but that’s what jazz is all about, [it’s] a dialogue or answering one another.

What Cialis I want to happen is to be really creative, and to play something new in the improvisations, every time.

Everybody has to go through a lot in jazz and in art to arrive where they want to.

What I try to do is get beyond thinking about it at all, and just be playing, and not being analytical.

There is a time where you can be beyond yourself. You can be better than your technique. You can be better than most of your usual ideas. And this is a whole other category that you can get into.
