If you go to my first Musical Monday post here you will see the 25 albums that had some sort of impact on my life. This is the list that I am using as my inspiration to my Musical Monday posts.
This will be my fourth week playing along, which means I get to showcase one of my favorite Jazz composers, and the only Jazz artist that I enjoy that works almost strictly in the instrumental.
Dave Brubeck's music is to me what I always pictured Jazz to be. This classy rhythmic sound, the music that inspires toe tapping and poetry. The music that played in the background of the cafe/library/coffee house scene of the movies that tried to be more than they actually were.
I have to admit I had a very hard time deciding what video/song to share, so once again I am choosing two. The first is a great piece, I have no doubt that many people will recognize it from various commercials and tv shows. The second is one of my favorites - and up beat, up tempo song that really shows what I love about Dave Brubeck.
Blue Rondo A La Turk
