O’s Notes: Dave and Marion discuss jazz piano, starting with a little ragtime “St. Louis Blues” then experimenting with the relationship between classical and jazz music forms. They discuss and play tunes associated with Brubeck’s long tine band member Paul Desmond and trace Dave’s career and influences. This is a good historical recap of Dave and his evolutionary career on jazz piano concluding with his signature piece, “Take 5”.
