Jazzman Dave Brubeck Dies at 91

The quintessential college hipster type cool white-guy jazzman, Dave Brubeck died today at 91.  All jazz lovers everywhere morn his passing.

As we posted  back in October, we encourage folks to “Take Five”; to get away from the rat race.  Dave has finally checked out and moved onto the next world, but as any jazz loving beatnic would have told you in Dave’s heyday, Americans need to do more than just “take five” but take it all — back for peace, justice and our future.  Thanks Dave, we’ll miss you.

Just found this excellent cover by Plankton:
