This is the fourth anniversary of Dave Brubeck’s death at age 91. Under the heading, “Always remembered, never forgotten,” John Bolger sent a message that included this photograph of Brubeck as listeners remember him from countless occasions—fully committed.

Here he is in 1964 in Belgium with the group long known as the classic Dave Brubeck Quartet. Paul Desmond, alto saxophone; Eugene Wright, bass; Joe Morello, drums. The piece is Brubeck’s “Koto Song.”
