Dave Brubeck – I got a poster from…


“I got a poster from Columbia Records, and there’s Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Ellington, Count Basie – everybody in that poster has died, I’m the only one left.

Dave Brubeck – My dad was the manager…


“My dad was the manager at the 45,000-acre ranch, but he owned his own 1,200-acre ranch, and I owned four cattle that he gave to me when I graduated from grammar school, from the eighth grade. And those cows multiplied, and he kept track of them for years for me. And that was my herd.”
