Dave Brubeck Music for Writers

The great jazz musician Dave Brubeck has died. He was 91 years old. “Take Five” was his most famous track, but his entire catalog overflowed with creativity and inspiration.

Remember his legendary work as you write today. We’ve created a free Spotify playlist to introduce his work, perfect writing music for a December afternoon.

Here’s more from NPR: “Born Dec. 6, 1920, Brubeck grew up on a 45,000-acre ranch in California and he came to music through a circuitous route. In a 1999 interview with Fresh Air’s Terry Gross, he said his first love was rodeo roping. But his mother, who spotted a special talent when he sat at the piano, insisted he not rope anything larger than a yearling.” (Image via)
