Mr Greenberg-Thx for a very nice Column on a "One-Of-a-Kind Musician . I used to supplement my Military Income fronting a 5pc Country/Western Band (Pretty good BlueGrass as well, if I do say so!)But Dave Brubeck was "my Main Man". Ironically, yesterday the USPS delivered a pk of five Brubeck CDS my Son Found at Amazon: Of Course it included TIME OUT, I had worn out a couple of those, Time In, Time Changes,Time Further Out, COUNTDOWN Time In Outer Space. They appear to be authentic but who knows? I'm gonna check out Time In right now!
