Dave Brubeck Quartet

One of my favorite Jazz musicians to chill out to after a harried week (like this one) is Dave Brubeck . Its perfect music to just kick back and relax.
Take Five may be the single best known Jazz recording of all time (argue amongst yourselves whats better known in comments).
Brubeck is one of those rare musicians where you can just about randomly select anything he’s recorded — and its all pretty great.
I even find his “goofy fun stuff” terrific — check out Quiet as the Moon . It is his “Peanuts inspired” work, and except for a song or two, its not the actual Peanuts music (that was Vince Guaraldi  doing the actual Peanuts recording, A Boy Named Charlie Brown ).
