    Sadly,Dave Brubeck shuffled off his keyboard recently.I often thought of his music as I was surfmatting;supertechincal nerdjazz seems very contiguent with matting somehow.Here's one of his best,from Time Out


    Playing on a magic carpet too!More to come...

    Other Brubesque jazz has to include Bill Conti's soundtrack for remake of Thomas Crown Affair

    Man that's a real shame. Huge and under-acknowledged influence for so many.
