Happy Birthday Dave Brubeck!

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.
