Legendary jazz musician and composer Dave Brubeck dies at 9112/5/2012
Legendary jazz musician Dave Brubeck has died, just one day from celebrating his 92nd birthday. Brubeck reportedly suffered heart failure while being driven to an appointment with his cardiologist. The genre-hopping pianist and composer grabbed listeners with his "swinging, smoky rhythms" and is best known for his immediately recognizable "Take Five," which remains the best-selling jazz song of all time. Appropriately enough, it's a cut from "Time Out," the first jazz album to sell a million copies. Brubeck originally wanted to be a rancher until he fell for music while attending college.
