Dave Brubeck: Legacy of a Legend

KIOS celebrates Dave Brubeck's 90th birthday with an one-hour special.

KIOS will air "Dave Brubeck: Legacy of a Legend" Friday afternoon at 2pm. This week marks the 90th birthday of the legendary pianist, composer & bandleader.

For well over 60 years, pianist Dave Brubeck has been creating a sound that combines

what he hears in the world around him with experimentation, playfulness and a lot of

serious musicianship. His music- from Camptown Races to Take Five - are some of the

most recognizable and influential pieces in jazz history.

In this one-hour radio special, you'll hear stories and insights about the music from Brubeck himself, as well as collaborators Eugene Wright, Bobby Miltello and manager & composer Russell Gloyd. The program is co-produced by Paul Chuffo and Joshua Jackson of Joyride Media.

"Dave Brubeck: Legacy of a Legend" will be heard Friday December 10th at 2:00PM on KIOS.
