Dave Brubeck, RIP

A great musician and a Catholic convert. May his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

“Take Five” from the seminal album, “Time Out” is written in 5/4. “Time Out” was a significant album because it was the first jazz album in which every tune was written in some time signature besides 4/4. Plus, it’s just flat great music.

Brubeck went on to write Masses too.

"He has admitted that the Church screwed up.I trust he had a very candid heart ..."

The Pope’s Apology
"Agree completely. But my comment was directed at the ongoing Christian/Christianist divide."

ICE Cold Pointless Cruelty
"The popes, including this one, are doing more to de-convert the West than Richard Dawkins ..."

The Pope’s Apology
"Trumpism is incompatible with being a decent human being, regardless of religious belief or lack ..."
