Brubeck's Last ConcertDave Brubeck came to my college in the mid-Sixties, and the concert was billed as being his "last concert." As a fan, I would have gone anyway, but the prospect of seeing his last concert was almost too much to bear. Nevertheless, I went. The group ran through their usual numbers at the time, including "Take Five," something I still enjoy listening to because of its complex time signatures.
Of course, the concert didn't turn out to be his "last concert." Maybe it was the "last concert" of the first five hundred or whatever. Still, I will never forget the experience.
