Black and white publicity photograph shown wearing a white collared shirt and black suit
Photograph signed: "From Dave Brubeck". B/w, 8x10. Publicity photo captioned in lower margin. A popular and creative jazz performer, Brubeck (1920-2012) formed the first of a series of avante-garde jazz groups in 1946. In 1951, he joined alto saxophonist Paul Desmond to form the core of the Dave Brubeck Quartet, which became immensely popular with an early hit, "Take Five". Brubeck's compositions "In Your Own Sweet Way", "The Duke" and "Blue Rondo a la Turk" have become standards. Characteristic of the group were its experiments with unusual time signatures. The quartet stopped touring regularly in 1967, and Desmond died ten years later, but various versions, many including one or more of his three musically talented sons, continue to play for enthusiastic audiences when Dave's health permits. Fine condition.
