Brubeck concert, briefly.

I told aedifica I would post a concert report about last night's Dave Brubeck concert, but markgritter beat me to it, here. Mostly I agree with Mark; I think he's keener on jazz standards than I am, but I enjoyed the Brubeck versions as well, and I had told myself that I was not going to get very much of the weirdo original stuff that is why I like Brubeck (and I was right, and therefore not disappointed).

I'm very glad to have had a chance to see him once. He's one of my favorite jazz musicians ever; almost certainly my favorite living jazz musician.

I was very amused at the choice of Brahms's lullaby for the encore. It was the most final-sounding encore I've ever heard.
