Dave Brubeck | jazz and faith

brubeck songs of praiseIn the December 22, 2012 edition of the Winnipeg Free Press, faith columnist John Longhurst offered up a nice appreciation of  the work of Dave Brubeck, with a focus on the pianist and composer’s faith journey. With the title “Music led jazz legend to Catholicism”, the column explores a facet of Brubeck’s life and work sometimes overlooked by the usual music press.

Longhurst extended me the courtesy of an interview as he prepared to write the column, and so some of my reflections on the connections between faith and jazz appear in the closing paragraphs.
