Musically, this is a huge loss.

Brubeck is a pioneer, and was still performing live.

This a huge loss to the music world, but will get buried under stories about Rhianna whoring it up somewhere, or some other pop-diva crap.

Do your self a favour and go listen to Time Out today.

He was an influence to so many. As a drummer I loved his non-standard time signatures.

I agree; a huge loss to the music industry. Brubeck was a staple on the jazz scene for so long.
