Midday Music Playlist for 12/06/2012

After the noon news, a tribute to the great American musician Dave Brubeck, who passed away yesterday. He was born in 1920, and today would have been his 92nd birthday. We’ll hear Quartet San Francisco cover a few of Brubeck’s most famous jazz tunes. We’ll also listen to an orchestral suite he wrote, a saxophone piece by his composition teacher, and a bass trombone concerto by one of his sons.
