Jazz After Dark Dec. 08 2020 Celebrates Dave Brubeck

8 pm tonight on Jazz After Dark: Happy birthday to Dave Brubeck!

December 6 2020 was the 100th anniversary of his birth. To celebrate this giant of 20th century jazz, we’ll hear selections from 1954 to 2005.

From the 1950s, a performance from his college tours. Live concerts in Japan and Mexico from the 1960’s. Backing vocalists Carmen McRae (in a classic version of Take Five) and Jimmy Rushing. Gerry Mulligan’s Unfinished Woman, one of the highlights of the band’s reunion concert in 1975, and then a gentle solo from 2005.

Jazz After Dark broadcasts locally at 8 pm Tuesdays on KDRT-LP 95.7 FM in Davis, CA.

Replays Monday 11 pm.
