Dave Brubeck celebrates his 90th birthday on December 6th. The jazz legend will be spotlighted in a new Bruce Ricker documentary, Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way, executive-produced by Clint Eastwood.
Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way will premiere on Turner Classic Movies December 6th at 5pm ET.
Columbia Sony Legacy just released a double disc compilation of Brubeck’s works recorded between 1954 and 1970. Titled Legacy of a Legend, it features 21 tunes handpicked by Brubeck himself, including the favorites “Take Five,” “Blue Rondo a la Turk,” and “Jeepers Creepers.”
