Busy Sunday? Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a relaxing break with some lively links…
And lastly, from Dave Brubeck’s Associated Press obituary:
Brubeck believed that jazz presented the best face of America to the world.
“Jazz is about freedom within discipline,” he said in a 2005 interview with The Associated Press. “Usually a dictatorship like in Russia and Germany will prevent jazz from being played because it just seemed to represent freedom, democracy and the United States.
“Many people don’t understand how disciplined you have to be to play jazz. … And that is really the idea of democracy — freedom within the Constitution or discipline. You don’t just get out there and do anything you want.”
