Assemblymember Eggman Honors Jazz Great Dave Brubeck

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) honored jazz pioneer and California native Dave Brubeck recently with an adjournment of the State Assembly in his memory. Brubeck, born in Concord and raised in Ione, died in December, just before his 92nd birthday. An experimenter with rhythm and tonality, Brubeck contributed to the popularity of jazz music in the 1950s and 60s with his album "Time Out" and its hit single "Take Five". Brubeck studied music at University of the Pacific, in Stockton, and his personal archives are housed at Pacific’s Brubeck Institute.
