Sunday Synopsis ~ Dave Brubeck

Anybody can read Wiki, Time Magazine or one of a thousand articles on Dave Brubeck and give you more than outline of one fabulous career.

By time he got to the last number “Take Five” we stood and ate up every single note and treasured every single moment we watched and heard from him.
