December 7: Dave Brubeck
Dave Brubeck - A Dave Brubeck Christmas
Sadly, Brubeck died a couple days ago. He was one of my favorite jazz pianists, right up there with Thelonious Monk and Oscar Peterson.
This entire album is solo piano. It's beautiful. It works perfectly for a snowy December day, or to put on in the background while you sip hot cocoa and open presents. It's a great album for the season.
It doesn't quite put me in the same mindset that Vince Guarldi's Charlie Brown Christmas does, but it's close.
RIP Dave. We'll miss you.
