Thursday, October 6My Go-To Place  invites you to join Kurt Loeffler for a captivating lecture featuring the life of West Coast Jazz pioneer Dave Brubeck and his highly commercially successful original compositions. Brubeck was a pianist, composer, and band leader who eschewed the edgy language of bebop jazz, instead opting for a hybrid of cool jazz coupled with his classical roots. He broke new ground in the language of jazz with his famous "Time Out" album, which featured odd meter time signatures and lyrical improvisation.
