Kudos to NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and CBS News, for covering the death of jazz icon Dave Brubeck, which occurred yesterday. I did not have a chance to catch ABC's coverage, but I assume they told this important story also. Jazz very seldom gets any kind of national coverage. However, Dave Brubeck's death caused this well deserved coverage to happen! On Artistry in Jazz this Saturday (6:00 PM), I'll be airing my interview with Mr. Brubeck and Bobby Millitello, his altoist of 20 years. These interviews were conducted after their performance during the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. I hope you'll tune in.
