Program Notes

Robert W. Smith writes:

I did a medley called Dave Brubeck: A Portrait in Time, "time" being a double entendre. Got to work with him on that; he was very excited. I saw him multiple times over the years after that and he was always very kind and very gracious and thankful, that his music had gone into a different group, different world.

This medley of time-eccentric Brubeck tunes includes Take Five, Blue Rondo, Summer Song, and Unsquare Dance.
