I was very sad to learn yesterday morning that Dave Brubeck passed away one day shy of his 92 birthday. His music was very influential while I was in High School. I must have listened to Time Out dozens upon dozens of times. I learned a great deal from all the music on that record about asymmetric and multi-metric meters. Later, I would learn about expansive, unapologetically chromatic harmonies from his London Flat, London Sharp. I always wanted to see him perform before he died.
