Dave Brubeck has today’s almost forgotten track

To many of us our first exposure to real jazz came through this quartet, and, likely, the track Take Five…though T5 dominates in terms of casual remembrance of the band, Brubeck and his group created many a memorable track that we never get to hear anymore, including this one…musicians have, for centuries, based compositions on the circular patterns of rondos, in much the same way that others have used boleros and tangos to create a more modern sound by investigating the music of the past, and Dave, Paul, Joe and Eugene were no different…always creating unique time signatures, which was their trademark, this track remains one of my favourites from that period of first awareness…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
