Dec 6, 1920. With his innovative and forever intuitive sound as both a pianist and composer, Dave Brubeck became one of the biggest stars of American jazz in the 1950s and 60s, at a time when rock and roll wasthe dominant force in popular music. Legendary records like his 1955 Columbia debut Brubeck Time and the ambitious Time Out (1959) featuring the hitTake Five and the first million-selling jazz album remain as hallmarks of jazz, and document how Brubeck and his collaborators defined the contours of American cool. A recipient of the National Medal of Arts, he was also the first modern jazz musician to be featured on the cover of Time magazine. Born at Concord, CA, Brubeck died Dec 5, 2012, at Norwalk, CT.
