It's always sad when someone you know has been influential passes away. We've all probably heard more of his material than we realise.

PBS uploaded a couple of videos to YouTube with recent performances:

St. Louis Blues - http://youtu.be/yRCmK_eMhpo (EDIT: I didn't understand the initial comments but it seems Take Five to me)

If my idiom had the leading role in a Raymond Chandler novel its theme song would be Blue Rondo. Thank you, Dave Brubeck, and good bye.
