Paul Wieder Interviews Dave Brubeck
Brubeck and his sons perform for Father’s Day at Ravinia on
Sunday, June 19. A jazz legend, Dave Brubeck celebrated his 90th
birthday last year by composing more music. Many know his iconic
compositions: Take Five, The Duke, and Blue Rondo a la Turk. Thanks to a
recent Milken Archive release, more can now access some of his
Bibically inspired works— The Gates of Justice and The Ten Commandments.
Here, he speaks about his life in music, his passion for social
justice, and seeing the world in both war and peace.
