Dave Brubeck Quartet
One of my favorite Jazz musicians is Dave Brubeck. Its perfect music to chill to after a harried week such as this one.
Even if you don't know Brubeck, you probably know him via Take Five, off of the album Time Out, which was the first million selling jazz disc.. Take Five may be the single best known Jazz recording of all time (argue amongst yourselves whats better known in comments).
Brubeck is one of those rare musicians where you can just about randomly select anything he's recorded -- and its pretty great. If you want some suggestions, consider any of these favorite Brubeck albums:
Even his "fun" stuff is terrific -- check out Quiet as the Moon. Its "Peanuts inspired" (except for a song or two, its not the actual Peanuts music -- thats Vince Guaraldi playing A Boy Named Charlie Brown).
