Dave Brubeck earlier this week meant little to me. I'm not a jazz man.
Sure, I can appreciate the genre, but I'm not a listener or a purchaser of jazz. And it would be impossible for me to name another Brubeck song other than "Take Five".
The biggest memory I have of "Take Five" is Rebecca's use of it - to a degree - in a Father's Day commentary she did on NPR in 2004!!!
I listened to it again last night, as it always made me smile. Not just because I know her, but I know her father as well. I love the idea of thinking of 1970s Jim.
Jim makes me smile anyways. Oh, so does Becky.
Yes, it's a shame Mr. Brubeck has passed, but his music won't - and the thought of Rebecca and her dad playing Brubeck in the basement rec room will last forever.
