Blue Rondo a la Turk
Dave Brubeck‘s music, particularly his album, “On Time,” was also standard fare in my house growing up. My mom would leave the house and Dad would put Brubeck on the stereo and crank it up. He would sit with my brother and me and have us clap out the rhythms to Brubeck’s music, which is some of the most unique in all of Jazz [go ahead, try it]. Here is one of Brubeck’s famous pieces: Blue Rondo a la Turk.
