Dave Brubeck has died, just one day short of his 92nd birthday.
He'd been playing and composing right until the end.
That track and that album were right there at the start of my foraging into jazz, aged 16. I play them now as often as I ever have.
Of course there were many other things over many other years too - many, I'm still discovering.
"You never know what's going to work," he once said, "You just go with what you believe in, whether it's a success or not".
Sleep tight sir.
