Happy Birthday Dave Brubeck!

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Monday, 6 December, 2010

Today is Jazz Great Dave Brubeck’s Birthday! He is 90 and still going strong.  Brubeck played a large part in the development of “Cool Jazz” (sometimes called West Coast Jazz) in the 1950s. Today’s program on Radio Riel’s Main stream features Brubeck as well as other major players in the Cool Jazz movement, such as Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz and more. The program also includes some contemporary Smooth Jazz.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
