Legend. American icon. Jazz titan. These are just a handful of the accolades offered to jazz composer and pianist Dave Brubeck.

Dave Brubeck recorded over 100 albums from 1942 to 2011 and broke musical ground for composing commercially successful music in odd time signatures. He was also lauded for his many ballets, orchestral, oratorio and choral works. As one of the best known and most highly-regarded American ambassadors of jazz throughout the globe, he made the cover of Time Magazine in 1954.
