    WBGO remembers pianist Dave Brubeck, who passed away this morning one day shy of his 92nd birthday.

    Dave was a dear friend of the station, and we had the good fortune to visit with him many times over the years. Michael Bourne spoke with Dave at his home in Connecticut for this memorable interview in 2003:

    Brubeck and Bourne also discussed his breakthrough album, Take Five, in a segment which aired in 2009:

    Thank you, Dave, for your indomitable spirit, and rest in peace!
