It has come across the wires that jazz icon Dave Brubeck has passed away at 91, just one day short of his 92nd birthday.
In 1959, Brubeck recorded his signature tune, "Take Five":
Mere words just aren't enough here. While I never saw Brubeck play, I think everyone has at one time heard "Take Five" and gained an appreciation for jazz, and for Brubeck in particular. Rest in peace, Dave. Heaven's orchestra just got bigger.
