If you're a piano player, just try to play transcripts of some of his stuff. He had enormous hands. Sure, Dave, my left hand can stretch from a C up to the G more than an OCTAVE and a HALF above ... ! No problem at all!!
I listened to my vinyl "Dave Brubeck's Greatest Hits" as a teenager until it was practically worn through. (Find it on listen dot grooveshark dot com.) Beautiful music, happy memories. Thanks Dave.
