Beyond 'Take Five': Remembering Brubeck

December 7, 2012

Jazz pianist Dave Brubeck died on Dec. 5, one day short of his 92nd birthday. His recording, "Take Five", is perhaps his best-known track, but Eric Jackson, host of WGBH's Jazz with Eric in the Evening, joined Boston Public Radio to take us beyond "Take Five". We remember Brubeck as a groundbreaking musician who introduced jazz to new audiences and new generations.
