Dave Brubeck


Brubeck's mother studied piano in England and intended to become a concert pianist; at home she taught piano for extra money. Brubeck was not particularly interested in learning by any particular method, but preferred to create his own melodies, and therefore avoided learning to read sheet music. In college Brubeck was nearly expelled when one of his professors discovered that he could not read sheet music. Several of his professors came forward arguing for his ability with counterpoint and harmony, but the school was still afraid that it would cause a scandal, and only agreed to let Brubeck graduate once he promised never to teach piano

Bellbird: Root In Tandem

Read "Root In Tandem" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Give Canada's Bellbird credit as they come right out of the gate with a chip-on-the-shoulders confidence. Their debut, Root In Tandem, looks like one of those late-50s/early-60s, time-themed Dave Brubeck albums. Credit the gorgeous abstract cover painting. The cover art, though, is where the Brubeck comparison ends. Bellbird is a chordless quartet, with Claire Devlin and ...

Glenn Zaleski: Summer Song

Read "Glenn Zaleski: Summer Song" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Glenn Zaleski's playing style is a little swing, a little more contemplation, and a lot of jny:New York City class. Those key elements are all there in this tricky-flowing turn on a Dave Brubeck classic--not really the tune for a sunny-day barbecue, as one might almost guess from the title, but rather one for winding down ...
