Dave Brubeck

“One of jazz’s first pop stars,” according to the LA Times, jazz great Dave Brubeck first appeared on the Wilshire Ebell Theatre stage two years after forming the legendary Dave Brubeck quartet and one year prior to appearing on the cover of Time magazine, with an accompanying article on the renaissance of jazz music and Brubeck’s amazing ascendancy. The album Dave Brubeck Quartet at Wilshire Ebell, from this historic 1953 performance, lives on today as a classic of its kind.
