Big fan here, too. When he passed away a few years ago there was a big “to do” in the neighboring town of Concord, where he was from.

He was formative in my appreciation of jazz... along with Stan Getz. That, and stumbling onto Kind of Blue with Miles, Coletrain, and Bill Evans... all of who, I would learn to appreciate, were also superb on their own.

Another good dude - Zoot Sims. Plus, what a cool ass name!!

What stands out to me is when Brubeck literally studies his quartet as they play their solos; he was an amazing composer, and even in his elder years, continued to invent and perform. The first jazz I ever heard (and watched) was a PBS performance of his quartet, probably when I was eleven or twelve.

He died in 2019, at the grand age of 91, of heart failure, on his way to an appointment with his cardiologist.
