Mr Brubeck played a lot in Detroit at their annual Labor Day Jazz Fest. I alway attended and 2 years ago I took my nephew who would be shipping out to Iraq in 2 months. Mr Brubeck was heading into a mobile to get out of the heat. I loudly asked if he would be so kind to take a picture with the 2 of us. He smiled, backed down from the steps, came over and spoke a few words with us! He said he had been to Iraq back in the 50s. He wished my nephew good luck and let us get a picture. A class act and a very gentlemen in every which way. I will not forget Mr Brubeck and his music will live on. God Bless
