Personal Quote:

One of the reasons I believe in jazz is that the oneness of man can come through the rhythm of your heart. It's the same anyplace in the world, that heartbeat. It's the first thing you hear when you're born - or before you're born - and it's the last thing you hear. See more »


Graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. The Conservatory at UOP holds special concerts every year as part of their Brubeck festival, and there is a Brubeck institute at the University of his works. See more »
