a white guy, in jazz parlance of the time.  used critically when brubeck was at his peak, which some thought (with some justice, probably) came at the expense of other worthy black musicians (monk, miles, etc.) me, i'm of the school that as with the rolling stones promoting muddy waters and howling wolf, that a rising tide lifts all boats. and i think brubeck could hold his own with a lot of musicians, ethnicity notwithstanding. a very good, soulful cat.

I was given a Best of Brubeck album when I was 12 or so....I remember a.m. radio playing Take 5 in regular rotation...these guys were monster musicians & Dave's conception were key to getting people to listen to jazz...
