A Little Thursday Inspiration | Dave Brubeck

Good Thursday morning to you!

Today’s post is a little different but I figured I better start including some music-related posts because I’m just as passionate about music as I am about photography and art :)

Today is all about DAVE…


Dave Brubeck is a Jazz Legend known for his unique compositions and unusual time signatures that always seem to bring a colorful feel to his work!  Unfortunately he passed just last year in December of 2012, but his decades long career left wonderful music that continues to live on.


Recently Google’s doodle for Saul Bass made use of “Unsquare Dance” by Dave Brubeck and that was all I needed to reignite my love affair with Dave :)

I grew up listening to jazz (my dad’s a bass player) so seeing all the work that goes into this makes it all that much more impressive! I’m no musician, so I know they probably appreciate all the subtle nuances that much more. I just like listening :)

Here is one of Brubeck’s more well-known songs

And here’s one of my faves

Love this cover art!


Dave Brubeck was a marvelously talented musician privileged to do what he loved right until the end. Want some more tunes while you work this morning? Look up some more of his videos on YouTube and make a Dave Brubeck Pandora station! Awesomeness awaits :)


I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Stay tuned for next week’s inspiration Thursday!
